Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -2.25 Dinamo
Odds: 2
Stake: 1

Match date: 23/07/2021

Hrvatski dragovoljac and Dinamo will play first match of the 2nd round of the 1st Croatian football league today at 8 pm CET in Zagreb. It's a duel of a debutant in the league and the current champion in which there should be no doubt about the winner, because Dinamo is for HD spaceship.

Hrvatski dragovoljac is a club from Zagreb, which cannot even play at his stadium in Siget district, but plays at the Kranjčevićeva stadium in the city center. In the first match lost 1:3 away in Pula against Istra 1961, and his best player was goalkeeper Zvonimir Šubarić.

That says enough about how bad is team led by anonymous coach Miroslav Kuljanac, who has only two or three young players who had some first-league experience before. Without at least 4-5 new and serious players, HD has nothing to look in first division competition this season.

Against Dinamo, the host will be in a subordinate role and hope that the guests will not go with full force, but hardly anything can help them. Coach Kuljanac announced certain changes in starting line-up, because he was very dissatisfied with play in Pula.

Central-back Dominik Ivkić will be replaced by Stipe Vulikić, and striker Martin Sekulić will be on the bench and instead of him from the first minute Mario Veljača starts, the scorer of the only goal in Pula in the last minutes of the match. He will most likely be in one of the wing positions, while Vinko Petković, who played for Varaždin last season, who was relegated from the league, will be transferred to the top of the attack.

For the first time in 31 years of playing in the 1st HNL, Dinamo was defeated in the 1st round. It was a sensational victory of Slaven Belupo 2:0 in Zagreb, but also a day when Dinamo didn't go according to their wishes.

But on Tuesday, Dinamo won a much more important match of the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League, it was 2:0 against Omonia from Cyprus, and the return match will be played next week.

Coach Damir Krznar will not calculate too much today, he will go with the strongest line-up, and captain Arijan Ademi, who got injured against Omonia, is missing. Left back Štefulj is also not in competition, and right back Stojanović was sold to Empoli

- We must play extremely seriously and professionally against HD. We will try to solve the match as soon as possible - said coach Krznar.

If Dinamo hadn't lost in the 1st round, maybe HD would have had some small chances today, but after that defeat, the champion will immediately want to prove his power, especially because Hajduk and Osijek are a serious threat to him this season. It will not be an ordinary victory, Dinamo will go to fill the net of the debutant, three-four or five goals difference is a real difference between these two clubs. A game of cat and mouse...
