will arrive at Stadion Aldo Drosina on Thursday for the Prva Liga meeting with home team Istra
. Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Istra v Hajduk Split are shown on this page - plus the latest match odds.
Istra won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-3 Prva Liga loss in their previous game against Rijeka.
Istra 1961 haven’t made the most of their chances in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 3 versus opposition teams over their last 6 outings. In those meetings, Verudeži have also seen the tally of goals against them total 11.
Coming into this fixture, Istra have not emerged victorious against Hajduk Split in their last 18 league matches. They'll surely be desperate to put an end to that run.
Hajduk Split will go into this clash following a 2-1 Prva Liga win in the defeat of Inter Zaprešic in their most recent match.
During their six most recent matches, Igor Tudor's Hajduk Split have seen their efforts on goal rewarded 9 times - yielding them a goals scored per game average of 1.5.
A look at their previous results shows us that Hajduk Split:
- haven't been defeated by Istra 1961 when having played them away from home in the previous 8 league games. What an away run they have had against them.
- have not won away from home in their last 3 league games.
Head to head
A quick look at past results between these clubs going back to 08/12/2018 reveals that these encounters have not been fruitful for Istra. They have not managed to get themselves any wins whatsoever whereas Hajduk Split have just been too good for them, running out winners in 83% of those games played.
An aggregate of 18 goals were scored between them in these games, with 4 of them from Verudeži and 14 belonging to Bili. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.
Team News: Istra
Istra boss Ivan Prelec will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this match owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Hajduk Split
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, Hajduk Split manager Igor Tudor does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match.
We’re inclined to think that Hajduk Split will probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target. At the other end, Istra might well find it difficult to score- but, we do see them scoring. We therefore think that it’s going to be a 1-3 victory for Hajduk Split at the end of the match.
