Hajduk Split – Statistics & Current Form
Hajduk Split wants to end the dominance of Dinamo Zagreb. The six-time Croatian champions started promisingly in the new season, but let last important points lie and thus lost the championship lead. With four points behind and one more game on the account, the “Bili” from Split has to win against the archrival.
Before the international break Hajduk Split won an open fight against NK Osijek. The “Bili” was still able to rock a 3-2 lead in the final quarter hour despite double outnumbered over time. With home win over Osijek, the second-placed HNL also extended its strong home series.
All eight home games this season have been won, including the first derby between Hajduk Split and Dinamo Zagreb. A prediction on the “Bili” in the away games, however, has only proved true once.
So far, Hajduk Split has an away balance of 1-3-3. Only the away game at the bottom of the table Varazdin was won.
In order to win the six-point match with arch-rivals from Zagreb, Hajduk will have to increase considerably. With the poor performances on foreign terrain an away victory of the “Bili” would be surprising.
Unlike Dinamo Zagreb Hajduk Split has no double burden. The “Bili” was namely eliminated in qualifying for the Europa League by Gzira, a Maltese club, much to the displeasure of their own followers.
Since Hajduk Split was also eliminated from the Croatian Cup, “Bili” can concentrate fully on the 1st HNL. Jairo da Silva, top scorer of the “Bili”, will miss the derby after being sent off against NK Osijek.
Similarly, Mario Vuskovic is also missing. Coach Damir Buric has not really made up for the suspended goal-getter in his team, so it remains to be seen how the offensive will go without the Brazilian.
In addition missing with Posavec, Juranovic, Nejasmic and Bradaric other regular players. In total there are eight players on the injured list, which significantly limits the options of coach Damir Buric.
Expected formation of Hajduk Split:
➦ Ljubic – Colina, Ismajli, Simic, Vucur – Barry, Nejasmic, Jradi – Caktas – Eduok, Dolcek
