Juventus vs. Dinamo Zagreb: UCL Preview 07/12/2016
Match Date: 7 December 2016 (local time)
Venue: Juventus Stadium (Torino)

Dinamo Zagreb has won none of their 12 away matches against Italian opposition, in all competitions (D4 L8).

Hajduk Split are the only Croatian club to win an away match against Italian opposition, it was in August 2012 against Inter Milan in the UEFA Europa League competition (2-0).

Dinamo Zagreb didn't register a single shot on target in their home defeat against Juventus on 27 September 2016 (0-4).

In the UEFA Champions League, Dinamo Zagreb has looked out of their depth this season. Dinamo has been defeated in all 5 of their matches in this competition so far without even scoring a goal and although they have been handed an admittedly tough group, they'll be desperately disappointed with their current performance.

Juventus Torino has qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout stages. A win against Zagreb would guarantee the top spot in Group H (which hasn't happened since 2012/13) whilst a defeat would still be good enough if Sevilla doesn't beat Lyon.

Juventus have lost only 2 of their last 37 home matches in the UEFA Champions League (W22 D13). Both of those defeats were against Bayern Munich.

Juventus Torino is winless in their last 3 UEFA Champions League home matches (D3). They have never gone 4 consecutive matches without a win on home ground.

Juventus have also failed to win their final group match in each of their last 3 UEFA Champions League campaigns (D1 L2).

The Old Lady have picked up victories against Ol. Lyon and Sevilla on the road but have been held to draws by both of those teams on home soil. Having romped to a 4-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb away, it is expected that Juve will grab their first home win of the season in this competition offered at 1/8 by the bookies.
