Rijeka Through After Extra Time Win; Hajduk, Lokomotiva Out Of Europa

September 23, 2020




Dinamo Zagreb are already through to the Europa League Playoff Round after their Champions League exit but three other Croatian Prva Liga teams will contest to join them after Thursday. Rijeka begin their European season when they host Ukrainian club FC Kolos Kovalivka. Lokomotiva lost to Rapid Wien in the Champions League qualifying round and will now face Swedish club Malmo in Europa League. Hajduk Split got the short end of the stick drawing Turkish super power Galatasaray.






Rijeka beats Kolos 2-0.



Malmo beats Lokomotiva 3-1.



Galatasaray beats Hajduk 4-0.

    Could very well see Rijeka losing too. Not sure what our attack will look like without Colak.

  2. Maminjo says:

    I assume Kulenović will start.

    We get to see what he’s made of at least.

    Well Lokomotiva is down 3-0 at half and I do hope Hajduk wins, but I don’t expect them to beat Galatasaray. So it’s probably down to Rijeka as they are playing a team I’ve never heard of. Hopefully if Kulenovic is playing he produces his first club goal in a competitive match in over a year.

  4. Me btw^ Site logged me out again and I didn’t realize it.

  5. ARMADA87 says:

    Yeah I mean we’ll see what Kulenovic brings. I’m not expecting anything big.

    Hajduk-Galatasaray 0-0 halftime. Two good chances so far for Hajduk- defense looks good.

  7. ARMADA87 says:

    my Rijeka stream just crapped out, anyone got one?

    Rakitić fouled in the box, PK Sevilla v. Bayern.

  9. ARMADA87 says:

    Hajduk done. Lokosi blown out. Rijeka looking dangerous in the 2nd half here.

    Marko Raguz from LASK looking pretty good. HNS should keep an eye on him before he gets scooped up by Austria

    I put big bucks on Ante’s predictions. 3-0. Gonna splurge on some PBR, no more Natty light for me.

    The Rijeka players were inspired by the huge red star some Serb put in Rijeka recently.

    Two players I was really hoping would become stars but haven’t quite materialized are Robert Muric and Stipe Perica.

    Can this be our next potential national team player? Strong outside shooter, some excellent long distance passing.

    Anybody with info? Born in Austria.

  15. Luka Sucic is a beast from what I’ve seen. Was one of the stars of Salzburg’s UEFA Youth League team and recently got moved to the first team. Looks like he could be a good midfielder with an eye for goal. He scored 10 goals last season in 25 games and got an assist in his debut in the Austrian first division. He’s definitely one to watch this season.

    do you know anything about the Marko Raguz kid Vuki? looks like he’s only played for Austrian youth teams. most likely due to not being called than him choosing Austria over us.. but i guess you never know..

  17. Maminjo says:

    HNS is pretty decent when it comes to pursuing young diaspora players that have potential.

    They immediately went after guys like Rakitić, Kovačić, Sučić, now Pongračić…
    But they didn’t really go after guys like Drmić or even Gavranović so much (when it looked like these two were good).

    I assume if this Raguž kid was really good, they would go after him.

    The people of Rijeka might be skinfolk but they’re not kinfolk.
