Top free betting predictions and tips for Villarreal vs Dinamo Zagreb

The first-leg result gives a nice advantage to Villarreal, but this matchup is still pretty much open. We have chosen a few of our favourite predictions and tips for this game, so check them out:

Total Goals Over 2.5

Since Dinamo lost in the first leg, they can’t go into this match playing overly cautious. They need to score at least one goal to even get to the extra time, so we expect them to be offensive from the very start, just like they did in the second leg against Tottenham. That being said, neither of the two teams have been playing high-scoring games in the EL playoffs, which explains the odds. Still, this is a huge chance for Dinamo to get the biggest result in Europe in their history, so we would recommend betting on over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

As we already said, we expect this to be a pretty open game since Dinamo can’t afford to play it safe. And if they do come into the game looking for a way to score, that will open a lot of options for Villarreal as well. So, we expect to see both teams scoring in this one, even though that only happened once in the previous five games in the EL playoffs for each team. It’s not the safest prediction, but we like it.

Gerard Moreno to Score Anytime

This prediction is rather simple – we expect Villarreal to score, and Moreno is their top scorer this season. The Spaniard has scored 19 goals in 24 La Liga games, and he scored 5 goals in 8 Europa League games. Furthermore, the only goal in the first leg was scored by Moreno from a penalty, and his penalty-taking duties are another reason why we like this bet.

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

Winning in the first leg in Zagreb gives Villarreal an upper hand, but we’ve already seen Dinamo surprise us all in the second leg against Tottenham. Can they do it again or is this the end of the road for the Croatian team?

Villarreal

After a 1-0 win in Zagreb in the first leg, Villarreal has a lot of reasons to feel optimistic about the rematch. The team has been fantastic in the Europa League playoffs, winning all five of their games up to this point. In the Spanish league, Villarreal is also in good form with three wins and two losses in their last five games, although they did lose to Osasuna at home over the weekend. Estupinan and Iborra will miss this match due to injuries.

Dinamo Zagreb

Despite the first-leg loss, Dinamo Zagreb still has a chance to surprise us again. They were able to hold their own against Villarreal and have only lost because they were unable to score since they’ve been without their main striker. Overall, Dinamo is in great form, with four wins and one draw in the league. Moharrami is going to miss the second leg as well, while Gavranovic is under question for the game.
