Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Maksimir when Dinamo Zagreb and West Ham United face each other in the Europa League derby. Dinamo Zagreb failed to impress in the Champions League playoffs, with the team losing to Moldovan side Sheriff in the two-legged tie, and, it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Thursday’s clash. Fit-again North Macedonia international Ademi is pushing for a start, while both Mislav Orsic and Rasmus Lauritsen have recovered from their respective injuries.
The Hammers, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays at the start of the new Premier League campaign, and seeing that David Moyes can count on key players for the Europa League opener, away win should be considered. Summer signing Kurt Zouma should sneak into the starting Xi, as well as Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko.
