Rijeka hosts Lokomotiva Zagreb in the Croatian Cup final. The match will be played on Saturday, August 1st at Stadion Šubićevac (Šibenik)
In the championship, Rijeka scored only one point less than this opponent did and remained on the bronze step of the podium. Now the men of the young Slovenian Simon Rozman have to defend the title of the Croatian Cup winner. In July, the nominal hosts of the meeting gained a good move. Rijeka gained four victories in a row, so it will definitely not give up the trophy without a fight - they scored 17 goals in four matches of the previous stages of the tournament!

Lokomotiva has already managed to repeat its historic achievement from seven years ago and won silver medals. Now the club has a chance to win its first trophy! It is naive to sit back on heels against Rijeka: at home, Rozman's men have not scored in only one meeting this season. Therefore, Goran Tomic is likely to force his players to play in an attacking manner because the opponent's defense regularly fails.
"Both teams to score – yes " took place in seven of the last eight meetings of the visitors. The last three head-to-head matches of these rivals ended with the same outcome. The clubs play in a similar attacking manner, and the average scoring of their matches is more than 2.5 goals. Of course, the cup nature of the match often forces one to choose a more defensive style, but neither one nor the other is good at “shutting out”, so none of the goalkeepers will leave the field without goals conceded.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
