Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

With the score after last week’s first leg, Dinamo Zagreb visit Legia Warsaw in the Wojska Polskiego stadium on Tuesday, around the penultimate stage of the Champions League Qualifier.

Although the third qualifying round got out of hand after a hard-fought opening game, the Croatian champions expect a fourth participation in the group stage in seven years.


Prediction for this match

Anger off the field preceded Dinamo Zagreb’s latest step on the ladder to potential Champions League qualification when ugly scenes erupted in the Croatian capital last week as their infamous “Bad Blue Boys” ultras ahead of the first leg against Legia fans Warsaw met stadium Maksimir.

With more than 200 people beating each other with batons, stones and burning torches, it proved a more civilized affair on the field when Dinamo stood in a 1-1 draw. Although the Modri ​​took the lead in the 60th minute, by a Bruno Petkovic Goal, Legias Ernest Muci equalized in the last minutes of a game, the coach Damir Krznar later claimed they should have won.

After several opportunities to expand 2-0, Dinamo’s frustration is at least alleviated by the fact that an away goal no longer counts twice in an overall remis – a situation that Krznar believes will promote offensive football.

Regardless of the outcome against Legia this week, the quarter-finalists of last season’s Europa League secured a place in the continental competition this autumn. If they leave Poland with a positive result, they qualify for a playoff against Red Star Belgrade or the Moldovan Club Sheriff.

The winner of this tie would get a place in the group stage of the Champions League; the loser a playoff spot in the Europa League. Should the Croatian club then lose in these playoffs, they would at least receive the gloomy consolation prize of a Conference League campaign.

Dinamo have been domestic title winners for four consecutive seasons and started their qualifying campaign with four straight wins, but started relatively slowly in the Prva HNL, with only four out of nine possible points, finishing them seventh in the opening season standings.

That said, the 22-time national champion’s standards are high given their recent European pedigree, so Europe’s elite competition will be where it is expected by the end of the month.

Since winning the 15th national title with three rounds left last season, Czeslaw MichniewiczThe Legia team at Legia has had at least one eye on one place even in the big days.

Like Dinamo, the reigning Polish champions moved into the third qualifying round without any real danger, having first defeated Bodo / Glimt – home and away wins against the Norwegian team – before beating Estonian FC Flora in the second round.

While they led Ekstraklasa last season and only lost one competitive game in 2021, Legia will now try to improve their status on the European stage after last week’s result in Zagreb.

The Legionisci, who last competed in the group stage of the Champions League in 2016, failed in the Champions League qualification in the second round last year before losing to Qarabag in the Europa League playoffs.

In order not to slip into the match this time around, Michniewicz’s men will have to perform better than they did in their last league game – a shocking 3-1 loss to Radomiak Radom after being reduced to nine men – despite having at least a whole We had a week to prepare, as we spared housekeeping at the weekend.

Dinamo Zagreb's Mislav Orsic pictured on February 25, 2021

Dynamo striker Mislav Orsic – who played for Croatia at the European Championship this summer and scored a hat trick against Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League last season – is part of a dynamic attack for the guests who have scored 36 goals in their last 13 games.

Left-back Orsic is expected to meet Bruno Petkovic up front in Warsaw – with Luka Ivanusec starting on the right – and Swiss striker Mario Gavranovic offers another option from the bank.

Head coach Damir Krznar still has concerns about the availability of the captain Arijan Ademi – who was forced off the pitch in the previous qualifying round with a hamstring injury – so Josip Misic could do it again Kristijan Jakic in the engine room of Dinamo.

Legia, meanwhile, will continue to benefit from the former Celtic goalkeeper’s vast European experience Artur Boruc – now 41 years old – as he starts behind a likely back three for the home side.

Azerbaijan striker Mahir Emreli should lead the line in a 3-4-3 formation, although Albanian youngster Ernest Muci is in the starting line-up after impressing coach Czeslaw Michniewicz with his late equalizer last week.

Winger Bartosz Kapustka is now confirmed as a long-term injury loss after being deposed under unfortunate circumstances just a few minutes after his goal against Flora in the preliminary round – as he was out for several months due to a torn cruciate ligament while celebrating his stunning solo goal by jumping into the crowd.

Legia Warsaw possible starting line-up:
Boruc; Wieteska, Nawrocki, Jedrzejczyk; Juranovic, Martins, Slisz, Mladenovic; Luquinhas, Emreli, Muci

Dinamo Zagreb possible starting line-up:
Livakovic; Ristovsi, Theophile-Catherine, Lauritsen, Franjic; Jakic; Ivanusec, Majer, Misic, Orsic; Petkovic

Probability: Legia Warsaw 2-2 Dinamo Zagreb (3-3 overall; Dinamo wins on penalties)

Although Dinamo is always a threat in the last third and can show great individual quality on the offensive, Legia was almost invincible on home soil this year and can certainly break through the defense of the guests at least once.

This well-coordinated duel could therefore go to the end, possibly requiring penalty shoot-outs to decide which continental competition each team will compete in in the coming weeks.
