Date: Friday, 22 July, 2016
Start time: 19:00 UK
In this meeting of the 2nd round of Croatian first division, Rijeka hosts Istra1961.
Last season Rijeka finished in 2nd position and clearly said they have ambitions to be submitted to good in the Europa League. In any event, the team of Rijeka will try to be competitive on Croatian colossus – Dinamo Zagreb and fight with them for the title. The start of the season for Rijeka was very good. Visit of Split was won with 3:0 as two of the goals were scored by Roman Bezjak.
Istra1961 are one of the weakest teams in the country last season were saved from relegation after barrage. In the first round of the new season, they lost to Osijek 0: 1 at home. If you do not improve their performance this season, it almost certainly will remain in the last position.
Last season Rijeka beat Istra in both games. They have flawless against this opponent as in a series of five consecutive wins. I expect another strong game from them and easy success.
