The hosts will be looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit after falling short in the first leg in Croatia with a quarter-final spot at stake.

PAOK began their campaign in July and had to fight through three qualifying round to reach the group stage, overcoming Beitar Jerusalem, Hajduk Split and Hearts before joining Aberdeen, Eintracht Frankfurt and HJK Helsinki in their group.

Razvan Lucescu’s side progressed through with a near-perfect record, topping the group with 16 points from their six matches, having secured a win and a draw against Aberdeen and completed doubles over Frankfurt and HJK with their tally of 16 goals only topped by one team across the competition.

That saw PAOK skip the playoff round and play their first continental football of 2024 in the round of 16 against Dinamo Zagreb, and their trip to Croatia ended in a disappointing defeat in last week’s first leg, with goals either half firing their opponents into a 2-0 lead at the halfway point of the tie.

Now returning to Conference League action on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Aris Limassol in the Greek Super League playoff on Sunday to drop off top spot in their domestic top flight.

Meanwhile, Dinamo Zagreb travel to Thessaloniki aiming to protect their hard-fought lead, having gone through an extra stage to reach the last 16 of this year’s Europa Conference League.

Zagreb’s continental campaign began in Champions League qualifying, and after dropping out against AEK Athens, they were denied a spot in the Europa League by an aggregate defeat to Sparta Prague.

That saw them settle for a Europa Conference League group spot, and despite losing three of their first four matches, the Blues were able to salvage second place with two wins before prevailing in impressive fashion over Spanish side Real Betis in the playoff round, winning 1-0 away from home through Bruno Petkovic’s goal and drawing 1-1 in Croatia courtesy of Takuro Kaneko’s equaliser.

Such aggregate win set up their last-16 tie with PAOK, and Sergej Jakirovic’s side gained the edge on home turf last week, beating the Greek outfit 2-0 as Petkovic opened the scoring in the 37th minute and added a crucial second 19 minutes from time.

Now following a 5-2 victory over Slaven Belupo in the Croatian top flight on Sunday, with Tibor Halilovic, Gabriel Vidovic and Sandro Kulenovic on the scoresheet alongside a late Martin Baturina brace, Dinamo Zagreb will travel with the aim of staying ahead in the two-legged tie and securing their quarter-final spot.

Dinamo Zagreb Team News

Jakirivic has little reason to change his Dinamo Zagreb starting XI from their first-leg win last Thursday, with Marko Bulat and Marko Rog remaining sidelined by injuries.

Petkovic moved level atop the competition’s scoring charts this season with his sixth and seventh Conference League goals of the term in their win last week, and he will continue to lead the line.
