Split vs. Rijeka - Preview

Interesting odds here, and a bit unrealistic drop on the away side. Split welcomes Rijeka in the 7`th round of Croatian HNL. Split is placed second with 3-2-1 and 11 points while Rijeka is 5`th with 1-5-0 and 8 points. It is quite shocking to see only a win for Rijeka till now and it seems Rijeka never got going. They were surprisingly eliminated from Europe and the bad mood carryed on. Before at least their game looked good even with big defensive lapses but now they hardly create chances. The only team they beat was Lokomotiva and they are their most regular customer. With draws against Zagreb, Inter, Hajduk, Dinamo and Slaven it is hard for me to see them as favorites.

Split is placed second and they had their first loss away to Dinamo in the last round. It will not hurt them much though as Dinamo is untouchable and their focus should be greater after that loss. Split is having a good season and rely on good defense. Split has not scored a goal away from home which is a worry but are very good on home ground. With wins over Zagreb, Osijek and Lokomotiva they gathered 9 points and 7:2 goal difference. Those were not the toughest opponents but give them confidence for sure. And confidence is what lacks in the Rijeka squad.

The hosts will have to do without: Spehar, Miljkovic, Erceg (injured), Blagojevic (suspended). The missing of Blagojevic will hurt them but other players are replacaple.

Rijeka has more important missings and should impact their creative aspect. Regulars Bezjak, Moises and Sharbini are suspended while another regular Jugovic is injured. Also questionable is Leskovic.

Rijeka has won just one of the last 5 visits to Split and i don`t see them taking 3 points today.
