Dinamo Zagreb entertain Krasnodar at the Stadion Maksimir in their UEFA Europa League round of 32 second-leg fixture on Thursday.

The first-leg tie between the two sides produced a five-goal thriller, in which Zagreb scored the winner in the 75th minute of the game. Three goals in Russia have given them an advantage in terms of booking a place in the next round.

The Croatian side and the visitors have enjoyed similar form in the league and have won three games in a row.

Last week's first-leg tie was the first-ever meeting between the two sides. Modri scored three goals in that fixture, while Krasnodar could only find the back of the net twice.

The Bulls have never won an away game in European competition while the hosts have recorded two back-to-back wins at home in this fixture.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Krasnodar Prediction

Krosnador are dealing with an injury crisis at the moment, which also saw them eliminated from the Russian Cup recently. The hosts have been solid defensively, keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four games.

The lack of experienced personnel in Krasnodar's ranks and Dinamo's current form will be enough to earn them a draw, sealing a last-16 place for the Croatians.

Prediction: Dinamo Zagreb 1-1 Krasnodar
