Slaven Belupo vs Osijek by Dajkula

Slaven Belupo welcomes Osijek in a one leg match of the Croatian Cup -1/4 finals. Slaven eliminated strong Sibenik and Tehnicar while Osijek eliminated Duga Resa and HASK. This draw is what the Osijek players least wanted to see. They would have prefered Dinamo instead. The history is well in favour of Slaven who has won 15 of the last 17 matches played against Osijek at home. The current state of the Osijek team doesn`t evoke confidence for this match as well though the coach says in one match everything is possible.


Slaven is having a very poor season so far and with the always bad away performances they don`t look that strong at home either. The games that should have been won ended a draw and that has been their main fault this season. The team is not nearly as efficient as hoped but some signs of improvement were shown. Inter was beaten bady by 4:0 and in a very fairly contested match they lost to Dinamo 1:2. They can blame the keeper for that though. So they welcome Osijek as a cure for their aches. Slaven was eliminated by Hajduk in 2013 and Dinamo in 2014 so they see this as a perfect opportunity to reach the semi-finals.


Osijek has lost the most away games in the league and has 1-1-7 so far with 5:21 goal difference. They took a point against an in bad spell Inter but barely created anything in that match. They can be very lucky with that point.


Osijek has for this match suspended captain Kurtovic(mid.10-0) absent while the hosts are without Jambor(mid.11-0), Brlek(mid.17-0) and Krizman(10-2). Important defender Galovic (8-0) is back in the lineup.


Home win should come.
