Both teams are in a minor crisis after an excellent start to the new season in the HNL. Failure to qualify for European competitions is a big blow for both teams, but it seems that they will be more competitive in the championship than last year. Being among the top three teams this early in the season is promising for both teams. The last three games between Rijeka and Osijek ended with a score of 1-1, and it seems that this time too, it is most realistic to play under 2.5 goals.
