The two sides have only bragging rights to vie for, with the visitor through to the Europa League and the host eliminated from Europe.

Zagreb coach Ante Cacic has been erratic in his choice of lineups this Champions League campaign, and could hand a start to attacking midfielder Allen Halilovic, the 16-year old prodigy on the radar of many of Europe's elite sides. If chosen in the starting XI, the Croatian can be fielded in any of the attacking midfield slots supporting the lone striker.
Oleg Blokhin looks set to hand starts to a host of second-string charges, with Mehmedi and Garmash both expected to start. Star striker Ideye Brown will be hopeful of retaining his forward berth, but could be rested in favor of Andriy Yarmolenko.
