Hajduk Split will be traveling this time as they head to Stadion Maksimir to try to redeem themselves by defeating Dinamo Zagreb in a crucial match. Will they succeed in outsmarting the hosts or will they lose ground?
Unfortunately for them, their most recent game against NK Varazdin ended in a 1-1 draw away from home since they blatantly overestimated the willpower and fervor of the hosts in that game.
They scored the game's first goal in the first half, thanks to a shot from Dario Špikić in the 45th minute, giving them the advantage going into the break.
However, the hosts punished them in the 63rd minute to keep them at bay and ensure that they would split the spoils at the end of the game, effectively ending their chances of leaving with three points.
This was their first tie of the campaign after going three games without losing, and with 10 points, they are still holding onto top place. When they defeat Hajduk Split at home, they will be able to collect three more points.
And now they face a team that was able to contain them the last time they faced each other in the Croatian Cup final, where they were kept to a scoreless stalemate but ultimately prevailed on penalties.
HNK Hajduk Split
After losing by a score of 1-0 against Vitória Guimares in the second leg of the third round of qualifying for the European Conference League, there was little that could be done to change their fate.
With a 3-goal aggregate advantage (2-3) from their previous encounter, they somewhat got off the hook. As a result, they successfully secured a place in the European Conference League play-offs where they would get to play Villareal.
They have played two games so far in the Croatian championship league and have won both of them, moving them up to second position with six points, level on points with Lokomotiva Zagreb in third.
They suffered a 3-1 road loss to the hosts in their final meeting of the previous season, so they'll be hoping for a result in this game that will help them avoid suffering another brutal loss.
