Following a loss to Hajduk Split at home by a score of 2-0, they were by far the superior team on paper. With the ball continuously at their feet, they constantly created several chances to score, but that wasn't enough because none of those chances were successful in finding the back of the net.
After putting up an electrifying display in their most recent match, it shouldn't dampen their spirits as they take on Dinamo Zagreb in their fourth game. This time, they should be extremely confident in their ability to frustrate the visitors to a great extent.
Knowing full well the visitors haven't preserved a clean sheet in every game since the start of the new season, exploiting those weaknesses in the opposition's defense could be one of their trump cards to pull off an unexpected victory.
And given the firepower they displayed against Hajduk Split, it's highly likely that they'll register a goal and keep all three points at the end of the game, though they will undoubtedly have to put in a lot of effort to get there.
Gliding through the UEFA Champions League are the visitors, who've been on an outstanding performance, excelling in each and every match they come across in the Champions League.
Constantly working around the clock they defeated Ludogorets 2-1 in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the Champions League, giving them a goal advantage going into the second leg.
Their most recent game, a 4-1 victory over Istra 1961, demonstrated that they have been a difficult team to stop when it comes to finding the back of the net recently and that they pose a threat when attacking.
Enjoying the first place position in the standings, they might consider this a straightforward victory, but they must keep their focus at all times because the home team could just as easily steal it from them.

Expert Betting Tips
Dinamo Zagreb has been finding the back of the net on occasion, and it's safe to say that they'll be on the scoreboard against Varazdin and pick up another three points.
Varazdin, on the other hand, could prove to be a challenge for the visitors, therefore fully discounting them from scoring at least one goal in this match can be a costly error.
As a result, for the first pick I'm backing them to score at least one goal, as I was impressed with their performance in their last match, and I believe that momentum hasn't worn off yet.
And for the second pick, I'm backing Varazdin with a two-corner advantage in the first half with anticipation that they'll instill pressure on the visitors.
