Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk face off as both sides compete to qualify for the knockout stages alongside likely group winners Manchester City.
Dinamo Zagreb are four points clear at the summit of the Croatian top flight and they are the league’s joint-top goalscorers with 23 strikes from 13 games and boast the division’s best defense, conceding a miserly six goals in that time – less than a goal every other game.
Shakhtar compete with them for the second qualification spot in their Champions League group, while the loser will likely finish third and drop into the Europa League.
Dinamo Zagreb possible starting lineup:
Livakovic; Stojanovic, Theophile-Catherine, Dilaver, Peric, Leovac; Olmo, Ademi, Moro, Orsic; Gavranovic
Shakhtar Donetsk possible starting lineup:
Pyatov; Bolbat, Matviyenko, Khocholava, Cipriano; Stepanenko, Patrick; Tete, Taison, Solomon; Moraes
