Champions League picks for Sheriff Tiraspol vs. Dinamo Zagreb
Before you tune in to Wednesday's Champions League qualifier, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Dinamo Zagreb vs. Sheriff, Green is backing both teams to score at least one goal for a +100 payout. It's a tall order, but Dinamo Zagreb won't lay down facing a three-goal deficit heading into the second leg, so the 22-time Croatian champions should press forward in attack.
After relenting 62 percent of the possession during the first leg, Sheriff will likely struggle to keep Dinamo Zagreb off the score sheet in front of its home crowd. However, Dinamo Zagreb's aggression will leave them even more susceptible to the devastating counter-attack that allowed Sheriff to open up a 3-0 lead in the first place.
Green sees clear value in a plus-money payout for both sides to score. Mislav Orsic and Bruno Petkovic combined to score 35 goals in all competitions a season ago and will try to find space in the final third for Dinamo Zagreb. Adama M. Traore will try to build off his brace for Sheriff last week.
