The second-round qualifying ties for Champions League 2023 are well underway, and the reigning Macedonian champions Shkupi are all set to host Zagreb on Tuesday for the second leg of their contest.
Shkupi nearly missed out on making it into the second round when they lost to Lincoln Red Imps from Gibraltar in the second leg of the first-round qualifiers. However, the three-goal advantage they held from the first leg saved them the jitters, and they are now pitted against the Croatians. The first leg between Shkupi and Zagreb was an even contest, with both teams scoring twice during the course of the match.
Brazilian midfielder Queven was the first one to score for the visitors, handing them a lead in the 25th minute. However, Zagreb came back just before halftime through a goal from Arijan Ademi and clinched a 2-1 lead in the 86th minute. However, Renaldo Cephas scored in the final moments of the game, and the match ended in a 2-2 draw, making the second leg even more interesting.
Dinamo Zagreb on the other hand has enjoyed a relatively smooth road to the second round after being crowned the Champions of the Croatian Football League for the 5th consecutive time. Ever since his re-entry as a coach in the Dinamo Zagreb camp, coach Ante Cacic has to lead his team to an unbeaten pre-season campaign, and the confidence among players is high.
Zagreb just won the Croatia Super Cup, beating Hajduk Split in penalties, and had a winning start to the new Croatia Football League season, beating neighbors BK Lokomotiva 3-2. A win in the second round will take them closer to their second consecutive appearance in the Champions League play-off round.
Match prediction and football betting tips for FK Shkupi vs GNK Dinamo Zagreb Champions League qualifiers 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Tose Proeski National Arena, Skopje, on 26th July 2022.
Both the clubs have a relatively injury-free squad to choose from, allowing the coaches to field their best eleven for this important match.

Bet on a Dinamo Zagreb victory.
Dinamo Zagreb has kept a clean sheet in 3 of its last 5 away matches, while Shkupi has been unable to score in 2 of it’s last 3 home games, adding weight to our recommendation.
4 of the last 6 home games for Shkupi and 3 of the last 5 away games produced fewer than 2.5 goals, leading us to believe that we might have a low-scoring match on our hands.
