Rijeka will arrive at Stadion Radnik on Wednesday for the Prva Liga tie with home team Gorica.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Gorica v Rijeka are shown below (including the best match odds).
Gorica fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 1-0 Prva Liga triumph against Šibenik.
The only scorer from Gorica was Hrvoje Babec (71').
Gorica haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, finding the back of the net every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They’ve claimed a sum of 9 during that time and have conceded a total of 7. We will have to see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Heading into this fixture, Gorica are unbeaten in the league by Rijeka in their last 8 matches. A long run without a loss.
In their previous fixture, Rijeka drew 1-1 in the Prva Liga tie with Istra 1961.
The only scorer from Rijeka was Robert Murić (8'). Šime Gržan (5') was the scorer for Istra 1961.
The stats don’t lie, and Rijeka have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals in all. Defensively, Riječki bijeli have seen their frailties exposed.
Ahead of this meeting, Rijeka are unbeaten in their last 2 away league matches.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head results stretching back to 06/04/2019 reveals that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Rijeka. They have not managed to come away with any victories at all while Gorica have been dominant against them, finishing as winners in 83% of those match-ups.
11 goals were scored between them in this period, with 9 from Gorica and 2 belonging to Riječki bijeli. The average number of goals per game works out to 1.83.

The referee was Fran Jović.
Team News: Gorica
Gorica manager Siniša Oreščanin doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this game thanks to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
Team News: Rijeka
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there is only the one fitness issue for the Rijeka manager Simon Rožman to be concerned about. Darko Velkovski (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
We feel that over the course of the game, Gorica may well find it hard to breach the defence of this Rijeka outfit who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore tipping a good tussle with a 0-1 win for Rijeka at the end of this one.
Little in this one.
