Zapresic vs Rijeka by Dajkula

First round of the HNL and Inter welcomes Rijeka. Inter is the newly promoted team this season while Rijeka finished second behind Dinamo last season. Rijeka has been revamped for this one and quality players have arrived. Rijeka might feel this could be their season finally especially with the current situation in Dinamo( Zdravko Mamic arrested). Some players are back from loan while some signed a 2 year contract. Some of the new acquisitions are: Datkovic(Spezia), Brezovec(Spezia), Canadjija(Spezia), Radosevic(Napoli), Kvrzic(Spezia), Bezjak(Ludogorets). These players will make Rijeka so much stronger and add so much needed debth for playing on two fronts. Rijeka played some friendlies and the results are encouraging.


I have seen some highlights from their matches and the level of preparation was very good. The team pressed well, the game was fluid and the attacks were finished with more players. I like what I saw and their opponents didn`t really get the chance. The result from this preparation so far is: Triglav 8:0, Rudar 5:0, Krka 4:0, Sarajevo 3:1.


Inter was first in second division with average away performances but definitely the best home side in the league with only 1 loss. They also conceded just 7 goal in 15 matches but that doesn`t mean much as there is a big difference in leagues and especially when these two will meet. Inter doesn`t have some quality names, the only one we could mention is the striker Nesterovski with 24 goals last season. There wasn`t much in the line of reinforcements as the 4 new players: Ottochian, Soljic, Komorski, Begic came from second division teams. Most of the players from last year remained. Inter also played some friendlies but the results were not that great: Slaven 1:1, Lokomotiva 0:0, Rabotnicki 0:1, Istra 2:3, Zagreb 1:1, Krsko 4:1.


Rijeka will want to begin the season properly and the opponent is managable I would say.
