Dinamo Zagreb and Villarreal to Draw

Both of these teams have somewhat exceeded expectations by reaching the quarter-finals of the Europa League and they are both in good form. Villarreal is on a 5-game winning streak across all competitions, while Dinamo hasn’t lost in four games. Villarreal is the favourite in this one, but we feel that Dinamo Zagreb can have a good showing at home, so we’re going with a draw here.

Dinamo Zagreb and Villarreal to Draw at Half Time

The stakes for both teams are incredibly high. For Dinamo, it’s a chance to reach the semi-finals of a major European competition for the first time since the 1961 Cup Winners’ Cup semis. Villarreal, on the other hand, can reach the semi-finals of the Europa League for the fourth time in their history. With that in mind, we expect a cautious approach from both teams, which often means a draw at half time.

Total Goals Under 2.5

In line with our previous prediction and our expectation of a careful approach from both teams is our next prediction of a low-scoring match. Although Villarreal has been more efficient than usual lately and gone over 2.5 goals in three of their last five games, this only happened once in their last four Europa League games. Dinamo Zagreb has gone under 2.5 goals four times in their last five matches. So, we feel that betting on under in this match is a smart move.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Villarreal preview: Can Dinamo surprise us again?

The match between Dinamo Zagreb and Villarreal should be very tight since both teams have reasons to be optimistic ahead of the duel. So, let’s take a more detailed look at these teams:

Dinamo Zagreb

Nobody expected to see Dinamo Zagreb in the EL quarter-finals after their first-leg loss to Tottenham in the previous round, but their fantastic performance in the rematch earned them a spot in the top eight. The team is in solid form, with four wins and a draw in their last five league games, putting them on top of the league standings. Dinamo also has a clean bill of health, with only Moharrami being questionable for this match.

Villarreal

The Spanish team is in great form at the moment since they’ve won five straight games in all competitions, including two wins over Dynamo Kyiv in the previous round of the Europa League. Before that, Villarreal eliminated Red Bull Salzburg with a couple of wins as well. All of this makes them the favourites against Dinamo Zagreb, but the team will miss Estupinan, Iborra, and Trigueros due to injuries.
