It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Lokomotiva Zagreb have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Lokosi have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 10 goals along the way.
In their previous half-dozen clashes, Hajduk Split have amassed the sum of 13 goals. Bili have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. During that period, they have seen 3 goals scored by their opponents. That kind of pattern might not follow through into this match, however.

In an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Hajduk Split manager Jens Gustafsson to contend with. Alexander Kacaniklic (Muscle Injury) misses out for this game.
Our thinking is that Lokomotiva Zagreb will have to work hard as a team to hit the back of the net against this Hajduk Split side who we think might win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Hajduk Split when the full-time whistle blows.
Hoping for a good game.
