The development side of Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb provide the opposition for the young Canaries, in the quarter-finals of the Premier League International Cup.

City's youngsters have been bolstered by a strong first-team influence for the match, with Josh Murphy, Matt Jarvis, Ryan Bennett, Kyle Lafferty, James Maddison and Ben Godfrey all set to feature.

Norwich were the only team to win all three of their group games in the PLI Cup, beating Valencia, Celtic and Aston Villa at Carrow Road to qualify for the knockout stages.

Dinamo were held to a 0-0 draw at Swansea but impressively beat Chelsea 1-0 and Feyenoord 3-0 to win Group D.

The prize for the victors is a semi-final against the development side of Portuguese champions Porto, who beat Manchester United U23s 2-0 at Old Trafford last week.

Follow updates via the blog above from 6.30pm, ahead of the 7pm kick-off.
