Rijeka, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-0 Prva Liga triumph vs Slaven Belupo.

For Rijeka, the goalscorers were Franko Andrijašević (68') and Sandro Kulenović (92').

An interesting feature of recent Rijeka games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.

Taking their prior six matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a losing one. That trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, though.

Going into this contest, Rijeka haven't lost in the league to Varaždin in their last 6 games.

Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb in Prva Liga competition, Varaždin and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

The only name on the scoresheet from Varaždin was Domagoj Drožđek (7'). Mislav Oršić (45', 54') was the scorer for Dinamo Zagreb.

It is worth noting that Varaždin have struggled for goals over their previous six games, netting the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those fixtures, Bumbari have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 6.

Heading into this fixture, Varaždin have not emerged victorious against Rijeka in games played away from home for the previous 17 league matches. A truly shameful run of away results.

🤜🤛 Head to head

An inspection of their past head to head meetings going back to 13/08/2011 shows that these encounters have not been kind to Varaždin. They’ve not been able to register any wins at all while Rijeka have dominated them, winning in 83% of those games where they have faced each other.

A combined sum of 14 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 12 of them from Riječki bijeli and 2 netted by Bumbari. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.33.

📋 Team News: Rijeka

Tibor Halilovic (Knee Injury) and Milan Ristovski (Ankle Fracture) won’t be able to feature for Rijeka boss Simon Rožman.

🗞️ Team News: Varaždin

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, Varaždin manager Samir Toplak has no fitness worries to report coming into this game.

🔮 Prediction

It looks to us that Rijeka have it within them to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.

Conversely, Varaždin will not find it easy to get a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet, too.

We’re therefore expecting to see a controlled 3-1 margin for Rijeka at the end of the match.
