Dynamo Zagreb won the domestic league by a landslide and dominated Hajduk Split each time the two teams met. At home, Dynamo has a flawless record and with the full support of its fans, it is expected to cruise towards an easy victory in the Super Cup.
Bet: Dynamo Zagreb -1.5 Goals
Odds: Bet365 2.60
Dynamo Zagreb will once again try to qualify for the Champions League, despite the fact that their last European experiences were downright humiliating. In Croatia they have emerged as the best team and regularly crushed the competition, with their Cup defeat to Zadar coming as a huge surprise. They have another chance to make amends tonight, when they lock horns with the eventual cup winner Hajduk Split.
The hosts will field a 4-4-2 starting formation featuring Sammir and Cop upfront as the two strikers scored a combined 21 goals last season. They will be opposed by a similar squad with the visitors also sending in two strikers from the first minute. Vukovic and Cartras scored nine goals each in 2013 but none against Dynamo Zagreb, with the last head to head fixture ending with a 3-1 victory for the hosts. The lone goal for Hajduk Split was in fact an own goal scored by Pamic who made it 1-0 in the first place, which says a lot about Dynamo’s ability to keep opponents under pressure.
The last time Hajduk Split won a game against Dynamo Zagreb was more than three years ago and since then the reigning champions posted convincing victories. Bet365 makes it easy to back Zagreb again and offers odds high enough to count on the hosts to cover the -1.5 goals spread.
