This fixture is a match between two teams that were close to making it to the much revered Champions League, but they fell short at the final hurdle.Dinamo Zagreb were particularly close to getting over the line but they hopes were dashed with two late goals from AEK Athens.
Sparta Prague were also on the cusp of Europe’s elite club competition, but they were beaten on penalties by Danish outfit, FC Copenhagen. Sparta dominated the tie against the Danes, but they could not convert their chances over both legs. Striker Victor Olatunji was most culpable with his inability to convert gilt edged chances in the second leg.
For both teams, now is the time to put their prior disappointment behind them and forge forward in their quest to play in a European competition this season. Understandably, the Europa League is not as glamorous as the Champions League, but it is their best chance of playing on the continent this term.
With that established, both teams will be ready to go broke and this match will be tightly contested.Missing out on the Champions League will give these teams the impetus to go all out and compete to the very end.
Based on that we expect very few chances in this fixture and we expect that the game will produce less than three total goals.

Main tip: Under 2.5 Goals
Our Dinamo Zagreb vs Sparta Prague predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Under 2.5 Goals
These teams will still be haunted by their inability to make it to the next round of the Champions League after making it so far. But with their Champions League aspirations up in smoke, the Europa League is their best chance of playing in Europe this season.
Thus we expect a really closely contested match with both sides not willing to make mistakes or give each other a sniff at goal. With that, the likelihood of a goalfest is greatly reduced and we think that chances will be far and in between.
Hence, we believe that less than three total goals will scored in the fixture.

Prediction 2: Both Teams To Score
In a match with these two teams involved, it is will be unlikely that there will not be goal scoring chances for both sides. Both teams are incredibly attacking in nature and their previous meetings are testaments to this. Their last two meetings have seen both sides score. If you also consider their last two respective matches, both teams have found the back of the net. With that, we reckon that both teams will score in this match.
Prediction 3: Dinamo Zagreb Win -Tip 1
Dinamo Zagreb were cruising to a place in the Champions League group stage or so they thought till two late goals from AEK Athens put paid to their ambitions. With that as motivation, the Croatians will be desperate to claim a ticket to play in the second tier European club competition. In addition, they will be playing at home and that counts for something in these kind of games. Therefore, our Dinamo Zagreb vs Sparta Prague prediction is that we expect Dinamo Zagreb to win this match.
