I really think it's a mistake that the guests are such underdogs here. The odds should be way more balanced, but, anyway, we have a great chance to make profit here. PPD Zagreb have had a very average season so far, and I am not sure they will bounce back easily from some bad results they've had so far. After 2 defeats in CL, they were seen as the big favorites against Kristianstad in Sweden, but they lost even that match, so they seem pretty hopeless in their CL group now. They cannot play well against the good defensive sides, nor against the teams that are quite attacking-minded, so I am not sure what kind of opponent suits them at the moment. They do have 3 wins and 1 loss in SEHA league, but they weren't that dominant in any of those wins, maybe only against Gorenje Velenje, winning by 7goals at home, but even that wasn't that easy as it seems.
On the other side, Metalurg from Skopje have been playing the way the can, and I must say they've had a pretty solid season. They are 1-1-3 in SEHA, but they've played some pretty hard games from the start, against Vezsprem, Vardar, Meshkov Brest. The guests showed a great resistance in that games, and the worst loss they experienced against Vezsprem, by only 3 goals. They have a very tough defence, and even the best teams have a really hard time scoring more than 25, 26 goals against them. Apart from that, they've booked a win and 2 losses in CL, which is better than PPD's record, and they overally seem quite nice.
Their mutual games also point strongly into this direction, as PPD have never been dominant against the guests. In the last few years, they've barely managed to win by 2 or 3 goals, and I don't see how they can win by 6 now. This seems like a reasonable bet. Good luck!
