Shkupi will entertain Dinamo Zagreb at the Todor Proeski National Arena (Filip II Arena) in the second leg of second-round qualifying for the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The hosts put up a solid fight in the first leg and an 89th-minute goal from Renaldo Cephas helped them secure a 2-2 draw. They need to build on that impressive performance in this home leg as they hope to make it past the second-round qualifier for the first time in history.

Dinamo Zagreb, on the other hand, are aiming to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2020.

The hosts head into the game well-rested as they have no league commitments at the moment. Zagreb, on the other hand, played Slaven Belupo in their league fixture, securing a 5-1 win on Sunday.
