Dinamo Zagreb vs Rijeka by Dajkula

Dinamo hosts Rijeka in round 14 of the HNL 1. It just may be the decisive match for determinating the championship already. If Dinamo wins this I can`t see any team to put on a fabulous run in the second part of the season. Dinamo is not playing some great football but the other 3 teams have problems wining small matches in which Dinamo does better.


Dinamo can grind out the result this season and even if they are on a similar level than last year the opponents Rijeka are far from the desired level. Rijeka sold big influential players and they can`t be reaplaced this season. There is not a right player in midfield and neither on the wings where Rijeka was the strongest. And of course Rijeka gives a lot of focus on Europa League where they played the best games in the last month. In the league Rijeka lost the last two and it was partly because of the Europa League I guess.


Dinamo players are all fired up for this one and even if the last two matches were not great and ended with draws I can`t see a better motivation for Dinamo. With some new kids playing more and better this season and with important Ademi back in midfield Dinamo has a lot of options. And all this with a very reduced budget.


Dinamo is the leader with 9-4-0 so far and are the only team without a loss. They have tightened significantly this season and it is not easy to score against.


Rijeka has 8-1-4 and are already 6 points behind with the last setbacks being the key factor.Away they lost to Istra and Osijek.


An important thing for this match will be the missing. Stojanovic(mid.12-0)and Matel(def.3-0) are out for Dinamo.


Key players Vesovic(def.11-1), Misic(mid.13-2) are suspended for Rijeka. Gavranovic(att.11-6) got injured(maybe because he is sold to Dinamo?), attacker Heber(11-8) is questionable and midfielder Matei(7-1) removed from team. Not looking good for Rijeka.


If this doesn`t end a draw then it just might end one of those huge wins Dinamo often has against Rijeka.

This season Dinamo is stronger than Rijeka. Also to note is the Europa game of Rijeka on Thursday.Rijeka is doing good in Europe and I see them focusing much on the Europa game to come. Dinamo is going to win and I fency Dinamo win plus under 3.5. I don't expect many goals in this encounter.
