Match preview

After a shock result in the first leg in Zagreb, it’s actually Shkupi who are in the better position to qualify.

A week ago, Stadion Maksimir was stunned silent when Queven given the North Macedonian champions a surprise lead.

Nevertheless, Arijan Ademi then equalised for GNK Dinamo before Bruno Petković had seemingly won it six minutes from time.

However, in the final minute of regulation time, Renaldo Cephas ensured Shkupi left with a draw.

Now, can the underdogs complete the upset at Toše Proeski National Arena?

Before this season, Shkupi had only ever won one of five European ties, but did eliminate Lincoln Red Imps in the first qualifying round.

But, if the Pigeons do win in Skopje, they’ll guarantee UEFA group stage football for the very first time.

GNK Dinamo meanwhile came into this tie as overwhelming favourites, but that’s not so much the case now.

Having won 16 of the last 17 Croatian titles, the Blues have qualified for 14 group stages in the last 15 seasons.

Thus, despite only drawing at home, Ante Čačić's side will feel confident of a win on the road.

The winners of this tie will reach the Champions League third qualifying round, with the losers dropping into the Europa League equivalent.

Awaiting them are Ludogorets Razgrad and Shamrock Rovers respectively.
