Dinamo Zagreb are through to the 3rd round of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League after a dramatic 98th minute goal from Croatian international Domagoj Vida gave the Croatian champions a 3:2 vicotry over Bulgarian side Ludogorec at Zagreb's Maksimir stadium last night (Wed).
Dinamo Zagreb went behind in the 12th minute before Ante Rukavina put the home side on level terms with a well taken header. Ludogorec regained the lead before it was that man Rukavina again who levelled the scores. With the tie locked at 2:2 Ludogorec just needed to hang on to go through to the next round on the away goal rule.
Although five minutes of added time was indicated, it was literally with the last play of the match in the 98th minute that Vida sealed the win with a well taken header at the back post to the delight of the crowd and coach Ante Cacic.
"This win was because of big hearts. I congratulate my players, who believed that they could infact win in what is probably the most important game for the club in the last 10 years. They showed character, and we had some luck, I hope this opens the door to the Champions League," said Cacic.
Dinamo Zagreb now face FC Sheriff from Moldovia in the next round on 1 August.
