A tight contest has to be expected in Bulgaria on Thursday as Ludogorgets take on Dinamo Zagreb at the Huvepharma Arena (Razgrad) for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League third-round qualifying tie.

Indeed, the bookies are struggling to separate these sides, with the hosts entering as 2.75 odds against to claim a first leg victory. Dinamo are available at similar 2.62 odds with the draw on offer at 3.0.

Ludogorets came through their previous round of Champions League qualifying, beating Shamrock Rovers 4-2 on aggregate, while Dinamo progressed following a hard-earned 3:2 win against Macedonians Shkupi. 

Ludogorets vs Dinamo Zagreb Betting Tips - Ludogorets or Draw

Ultimately, this looks a tough contest to call on paper, and while both sides will be looking to go forward, this contest looks evenly balanced, and a share of the first-leg spoils could be the way to go for those looking for a bit of value.

3 of 4 previous meetings between these sides back in 2012 and 2013 saw BTTS with Ludogorets emerging with a 5:1 aggregate triumph from their UEFA Cup tie nearly 9 years ago, but we expect a closer occasion here with the Bulgarians perhaps having the edge considering their excellent home form in this competition in recent years.
