Osijek vs Hajduk Split by Dajkula

In round 23 of the Croatian HNL Osijek welcomes Hajduk. It promises to be an interesting match and I see the hosts closer to a win. Osijek is deep in relegation battle as they are placed 8`th with 22 points and the candidates are close behind. But with the backup they usually get from Dinamo and Mamic they tend to win those important matches in second part of the season. Osijek got their new coach Susak 3 rounds ago and the effect was instant with a 4:0 home win over Split. Not only that they managed to fight hard and take a valuable point from Dinamo in the last minutes and just ripp apart strange Zagreb by 0:4 away from home. I was fairly impressed how Osijek totally dominated in that game and showed so much heart in each duel. Osijek is a home team and it will be difficult to take any points from them from now on. And Hajduk always has a tought time visiting here as they have not won since 2008. Osijek in fact won 4 and drew 4 of those 8 matches and the game was always tight.


I don`t know what to think about Hajduk. A team with such great tradition plays worse and worse each year and I don`t know if they can catch third place at all. The club relies mostly on young players but when they are younger each year they will have big problems against experienced teams. Hajduk is playing without any real energy, that co called "dispet" is no more with the team. Or maybe it went when coach Tudor left who the players admired. But Tudor was set on recruiting new players for which he got no O.K. from the managment. So he though the team will not move forward and left.


New coach Poklepovic did not bring anything new to the team and the results are still bad, as is the game. They lost his debut match against Lokomotiva away by 2:1, played a horrible home match against Zadar which finished 2:2 and won over lower league Vinogradar in the cup 3:0. They were especially bad vs Zadar who tore their young defense apart and led 0:2 by half time. If Zadar players were not very selfish and stupid they could have easily won that match 0:3, 0:4. I see no real threat in Hajduk especially with important missing tomorrow.


Hajduk will have to do without defenders Mikanovic(6-0) and Nizic(11-0), Basic(mid.7-0), Gotal(att.19-8) and Caktas(mid.20-8). Caktas and Gotal are also the first scorers of the team.


Osijek will do without attacker Aneff(0-0) and midfielder Kurtovic(15-0).


With everything shown in the last few weeks Osijek can take this very important home win.
