Borja Lopez won't play the last four matches before the mid-season break. Namely, Hajduk's defender got a knee ligaments injury in the match against Slaven Belupo on Sunday. Luckily, he will not need a surgery but he won't be able to return on the pitch before January. Immediately after the match, Hajduk's doctors did all necessary examinations and confirmed that it will take up to two months for a full recovery.
Hamza Barry had a similar injury and he will soon be ready to join his teammates. This valuable midfielder couldn't play from the beginning of October, he missed the last six matches and it is highly possible that he will miss only one more, this week's tie against Rudeš in Zagreb. Next week, he should be ready and available to the new head coach Siniša Oreščanin.
