    Expert Verdict: Dinamo Zagreb have a lot more big-game experience, reaching the group stage of the competition last year, beating Arsenal at home to record one of the most famous wins in the history of the club. To have the chance to rack up more scalps, the Croatian side must get past Dinamo Tbilisi first and they should get a comfortable win here to gain control of the tie.

Dinamo ZagrebDinamo Zagreb Team News, Updates and Facts

Vardar were vanquished by Dinamo Zagreb in the last round of qualifying for the Champions League, with the Croatian side winning each leg by a single goal to go through to the next round. 

That victory set up a clash against Dinamo Tbilisi - a club they have never played before - with manager Zoran Mamic likely to keep faith with the same players that have won four games in a row. Pjaca scored twice in the last round so comes into this crucial first leg in decent form.

Dinamo Zagreb likely XI: 

Jezina, Sigali, Schildenfeld, Paulo Machado, Matel, Antolic, Stojanovic, Rog, Soudani, Hodzic, Pjaca.

Dinamo TbilisiDinamo Tbilisi Team News, Updates and Facts

Georgian side Dinamo Tbilisi came through the last qualifying round fairly easily, beating Alashkert 2-0 at home and following up that comfortable victory with a 1-1 draw in the away leg of the tie. Dinamo Zagreb are a big step up in class, however, and Dinamo Tbilisi will want to keep the first leg as tight as possible to improve their chances of making it through to the group stage.

Juraj Jarabek's men are outsiders for this game, but Kvilitaia, goalscorer in the last round, is a talented player who can cause a lot of problems for the Croatian team.

Dinamo Tbilisi likely XI: 

Scribe, Amisulashvili, Spicic, Lobzhanidze, Rene, Velev, Parunashvili, Jighauri, Tchanturishvili, Dvalishvili, Kvilitaia.
