In that game, Rijeka had 63% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for Rijeka was Jorge Obregón (67'). For their opponents, Lokomotiva Zagreb got 10 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Robert Mudražija (37') and Marin Šotiček (43', 96') scored for Lokomotiva Zagreb.

They have managed to rack up 11 during that time while also conceding a total of 3.
