Filip Bradarić played the first game as a Hajduk returnee at Rujevica stadium in Rijeka, where the game ended in a 1:1 draw. Hajduk's midfielder played until the 89th minute, when he was substituted with Anthony Kalik. Filip commented the match with Rijeka:
"We knew that Rijeka is a tough opponent when they play at home, we expected a demanding game, which is how it was in the end. We didn't start the match in the right way, we made too many mistakes in the middle, Rijeka took advantage of them and attacked from counterattacks. Franko scored from 16 meters, he simply came into a situation that most suits him. After the first half, we agreed to start the second half more aggressively and courageously. We took the initiative, we were the better team and in the end Teklić scored a great equalizer" said Bradarić after the game.
"We can now discuss that in that moment we could have gone for a victory but we didn't succeed in it, of course we are sorry that we didn't win because we came here to win this game. The most important thing is that we showed our character, if we didn't manage to win in the end".
