Slaven Belupo vs Osijek by Dajkula

I expect the odds will drop more so will play it now. Slaven Belupo welcomes Osijek in the first match of the 27`th round of Croatian HNL. It is the bottom of the table clash with Slaven being 7`th with 27 points and Osijek on 8`th with 23 points. No team can lose points at this part of the season but I see the hosts as strong favorites. Slaven has 6-3-2 at home and is the third best home team. The reason why they are not higher on the table is because traditionaly they do very badly in away games and this season is no different. But they have played even 4 away games more than at home so they will surely climb. Slaven has not had good luck with coaching chances and started the season on the wrong foot. With the arrival of coach Cacic Slaven is again strong at home and no team can count on points upfront. I like this team and their heart I must say.


Osijek has had problems all season long but with the help of some influential people like Mamic they will probably not relegate. Osijek changed their coach a few rounds back and it made an impact. Osijek won over Split 4:0, drew with Dinamo 1:1 and crushed Zagreb away 0:4. But then it stoped and Osijek has not scored a goal in the next 3 matches picking up 2 loses and a draw. They created nothing against mediocre Hajduk at home while have lost away to Istra where they don`t lose. Sure they picked a 0:0 draw against Rijeka but Rijeka dominted the entire match and it was a big surprise Osijek did not lose with a good margin. I don`t like how Osijek plays away from home and have really conceded some stupid goals lately, bad luck some would say. But I doubt they can take anything away in this game and improve their pathetic 2-1-9 in away games.


Actually this is the worst away game for Osijek since the begining of the league and Osijek has lost 8 of their last 9 travels to Koprivnica. They have not scored in 6 of those matches.


So I do find Slaven the likely winer even more as Osijek will miss for this travel the suspended midfielder Jamak(17-0) and the best midfield player Skoric(23-3) who is injured.


Slaven has all available besides the defender Edson(19-0) but he is out for weeks now.


Slaven must take the 3 points here.
