The UEFA Champions League resumes this week as Dinamo Zagreb faces Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan in the main match at the Maksimir Stadium on Tuesday.
Dinamo Zagreb is currently number one in the country and has been very impressive so far. The Croatian side drew 1-1 with Hajduk Split last week and needs to improve their performance in this match.
On the other hand, ‘Milan’ is currently second in the viewership ratings and has achieved an amazing performance this season. The Rossoneri beat Monza 4-1 in their previous match and will be aiming for a similar result this week.
Milan has performed impressively at home this season but has failed to gain promotion to the UEFA Champions League. The Rossoneri are aiming for the knockout stage and cannot afford to drop points in this match.
Dinamo Zagreb can perform well in the match of the day and has had a significant impact in recent years. Milan is a good team on paper and we have to win this game.
