Match background Only this chapter

Dinamo Zagreb must win and hope for help from elsewhere as they round off their Group C campaign at home to section winners Manchester City looking to join their visitors in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

• While City have an unassailable five-point lead at the top of the standings, Dinamo are third on five points – one behind Shakhtar Donetsk and one ahead of Atalanta. Dinamo will therefore go through if they beat City and Shakhtar do not win at home against Atalanta.

• On Matchday 2, in what was City's first fixture against a Croatian club, second-half goals from Raheem Sterling (66) and Phil Foden (90+5) gave the home side the points in Manchester, inflicting a sixth defeat in seven visits to England on Dinamo, who have beaten English opposition only once in UEFA competition.

Highlights: Manchester City 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Form guide
• Dinamo have not won since a 4-0 home success against Atalanta on Matchday 1, achieved thanks to Mislav Oršić's hat-trick, which made him the first player to hit three goals for a Croatian club in a UEFA Champions League group encounter.

• After losing at City in their second game, Dinamo then drew 2-2 at Shakhtar and 3-3 at home to the Ukrainian side – Shakhtar scoring twice in added time to deny Dinamo victory – before a 2-0 defeat at Atalanta in their fifth fixture.

• Dinamo have won only five of their 41 matches in the UEFA Champions League group stage (D7 L29); they suffered six defeats in their most recent participation, in 2016/17. They had lost 11 successive matches, and won only one of 27 (D2 L24) – a 2-1 defeat of Arsenal in Zagreb in September 2015 that ended a 16-year wait for a victory in the competition proper – before beating Atalanta on Matchday 1.

• That defeat of Arsenal is Dinamo's only win against an English club in 12 previous fixtures, home and away (D2 L9). At home their record is W1 D1 L3, with three successive defeats preceding the victory against Arsenal.

Highlights: Dinamo Zagreb 3-3 Shakhtar Donetsk

• Dinamo claimed their 13th Croatian league title in 14 seasons in 2018/19 – and 20th in all – but their UEFA Champions League campaign came to an early end with a play-off defeat against Young Boys. Moving into the UEFA Europa League, the Zagreb club finished first in their section before getting the better of Viktoria Plzeň in the round of 32, then bowing out after extra time against Benfica in the last 16 (1-0 h, 0-3 a).

• Nenad Bjelica's side started this season's UEFA Champions League in the second qualifying round, easing past Georgia's Saburtalo 5-0 on aggregate (2-0 a, 3-0 h) before a 5-1 victory over two games against Ferencváros of Hungary (1-1 h, 4-0 a). They then overcame Rosenborg in the play-offs, winning 2-0 at home before a 1-1 draw in Norway.

• Dinamo are unbeaten in ten home European fixtures (W7 D3). A second-leg loss to Young Boys in last season's UEFA Champions League play-offs (1-2) is their only defeat in the last 15 such matches (W10 D4).

• This is Dinamo's seventh UEFA Champions League group campaign overall, and fifth in nine seasons. They have failed to qualify from the group stage in all six previous attempts. In fact, 2018/19 marked the first time in 14 UEFA club competition group stage campaigns – including eight in the UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League – that the Croatian club had made it through to the next phase.

Highlights: Manchester City 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

Manchester City
• City won their first three games in Group C – at Shakhtar (3-0) and at home to Dinamo and Atalanta (5-1) – before their four-game winning streak in the UEFA Champions League ended with a 1-1 draw in Italy. City were then also held 1-1 at home by Shakhtar on Matchday 5.

• City have scored 26 goals in their last nine UEFA Champions League matches; since losing at home to Lyon on Matchday 1 last season (1-2) their record is W10 D3 L1 with 41 goals scored and 13 conceded.

• In 2018/19, City recovered from that defeat at home to Lyon to finish first in Group F ahead of the French club, Shakhtar and Hoffenheim, picking up 13 points. They brushed aside Schalke 10-2 on aggregate in the last 16, but for the second year running lost to English opposition in the quarter-finals, Tottenham eliminating them on away goals after a dramatic 4-4 aggregate draw (0-1 a, 4-3 h).

Highlights: Atalanta 1-1 Manchester City

• Guardiola's side have won 11 of their last 20 European matches, home and away, losing six. Away from home it is five wins in nine matches (D2 L2), both defeats coming in England; the last game they lost abroad was at Shakhtar (1-2) on Matchday 6 of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League.

• This is the Citizens' ninth UEFA Champions League campaign; they have been involved in the group stage every season since 2011/12 and have now reached the round of 16 in seven successive campaigns.

• City's best UEFA Champions League performance was reaching the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Champions of England for the second season running and sixth overall – four of those titles having come in the last eight years – City also lifted the FA Cup and League Cup in 2018/19, becoming the first English club to win all three domestic trophies in one season.

Highlights: Atalanta 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Head coach Only this chapter

Nenad Bjelica

Date of birth: 20 August 1971

Playing career:
Osijek (twice), Albacete, Real Betis, Las Palmas, Kaiserslautern, Admira, Kärnten

Coaching career:
Kärnten, Lustenau, Wolfsberg, Austria Wien, Spezia, Lech Poznań, Dinamo Zagreb

• Aged 19, Bjelica made his professional debut for home-town club Osijek, scoring seven goals in 23 games in his first full season. In 1992 the Croatian joined Spanish club Albacete where he spent four successful years before spells at Betis and Las Palmas. In summer 1999 he rejoined Osijek for a year, prior to closing out his career in Germany and Austria.

• The playmaker, voted Croatia's player of the year in 2000, was awarded his international debut against Austria in 2001 and was capped nine times by his country. He made two appearances at UEFA EURO 2004 in Portugal.

• Bjelica started life in the dugout in autumn 2007 as player-coach at Kärnten – registering 29 Austrian second division outings that season. Then hung up his boots but remained in charge until early 2009, subsequently taking over at Lustenau and Wolfsberg, whom he guided from the third tier to the Austrian Bundesliga.

• During his final campaign with Wolfsberg, in 2012/13, Bjelica's side missed out on UEFA Europa League qualification by a solitary point. Bjelica left his post to replace Peter Stöger at Austria Wien and soon led his new employers to the UEFA Champions League group stage, overcoming Dinamo Zagreb in the play-offs, but nevertheless only lasted in the post until February 2014.

• Took charge of Italian Serie B side Spezia between June 2014 and November 2015, before two seasons in Poland with Lech. Appointed Dinamo coach on 15 May 2018, within days the club had won both the Croatian league and cup; retained the league title in 2018/19, Bjelica also taking the club to the UEFA Europa League round of 16.


Josep Guardiola

Date of birth: 18 January 1971
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career:
Barcelona, Brescia (twice), Roma, Al-Ahly Club, Dorados de Sinola
Coaching career:
Barcelona B, Barcelona, Bayern München, Manchester City

• Known as 'Pep', he came up through Barcelona's youth ranks to win six Spanish Liga titles, one European Champion Clubs' Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Copa del Rey trophies from 1990 to 2001. Also had spells with Brescia, Roma, al-Ahly in Doha and Mexico's Dorados de Sinola before ending his playing career in 2006. Won 47 caps and Olympic footballing gold with Spain in 1992, but missed the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups through injury.

• Having coached Barcelona's B team, he took charge of the senior side in 2008 and won the UEFA Champions League, Spanish Liga and Copa del Rey in his first season. That was just the beginning of a glorious four-season spell which yielded 14 trophies. In his second campaign, Guardiola steered Barcelona to a second Liga title as well as the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Even more sucess followed in 2010/11 as Barcelona completed a hat-trick of Spanish titles and, for the second time under Guardiola, got the better of Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League final.

• In his final season, 2011/12, Guardiola's team won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup once more before he signed off his reign with a second Copa del Rey triumph. After a year's break, Guardiola took charge of Bayern in June 2013, replacing Jupp Heynckes.

• Collected the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup and, with a record seven games to spare, the Bundesliga title in his first season in Germany. Secured his second successive Bundesliga title the following season, and Bayern again dominated domestically in 2015/16, but all three of Guardiola's UEFA Champions League campaigns in Bavaria ended in the semi-finals.

• Opted for a new challenge at Manchester City in summer 2016 and, though the first year in charge produced Guardiola's first trophy-less campaign as a coach, he and City delivered in style in 2017/18, racking up 100 points in winning the Premier League and adding the English League Cup; the following season, City became the first English club to win the domestic treble of league – holding off a remarkable Liverpool effort – FA Cup and League Cup.
