Our prediction for this Croatia HNL match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Kranjceviceva when Lokomotiva Zagreb and Osijek face each other in the HNL derby. Lokomotiva Zagreb are high on confidence ahead of Sunday’s clash as they outplayed Slaven Koprivnica 3-1 in the Croatian Cup final at the weekend. The capital club will almost certainly represent Croatia in the Europa League next term, but they could grab a place in the Champions League as well.
Seeing that Lokomotiva Zagreb are only one point behind the Champions League berth, we predict that the hosts are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s showdown. Osijek, on the other hand, suffered a heart-breaking loss to Rijeka in the Croatian Cup semis, where main referee helped the hosts make a comeback. Considering that Ivica Kulesevic’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
