Slaven Belupo vs Rijeka
I don't really like to bet on Croatian league but this bet is obvious. Slaven Belupo is without a win in last 6 rounds while Rijeka is just opposite, they are on a 7 wins run and it were not wins against weak opponents but top Croatian sides like Dinamo Zagreb, Lokomotiva Zagreb twice, Osijek and others...it is all Champions league/Europa league participants or contenders. Rijeka obviously has appetites for the title and with a win they would be just 6 points behind Dinamo Zagreb. I doubt they will be champions this year with coach Bjelica in charge of Dinamo who simply knows how to dose and mix players for each game just enough to win it. It is true they lost to Rijeka but they had more chances in that game so it might be football luck on Rijeka side. Slaven Belupo is for sure not a bad side, they are competitive with all teams but the shape of Rijeka and slightly more quality in their team should point out on the away win as the only logical bet in this game. In last game against Lokomotiva, Brazilian Heber scored twice and in game against Osijek, Croatian Čolak scored twice...so Rijeka surely has men to play with and I have to mention that Osijek was pretty equal to Glasgow Rangers in their qualyfications for EL and in Rijeka case they lost to Sarpsborg 08 which was pretty decent in EL. So since Slaven Belupo is in the middle of the Croatian league standings the quality difference is obvious and this is a must take bet at decent odds. I see 1:2 result in this game.
