Ahead of the match with Istra 1961, head coach Damir Burić held a pre-match press conference at Poljud.
"After the game with Rijeka, everyone was disappointed, it was really quiet, everyone was having their own thoughts. I told my players that it's now high time to show our true character. They are highly motivated, they want to correct some things in the next game. We are ready for our next opponent, this is the right way to show who we truly are. We can't wait for the match to start. It's going to be a tough match but our goal is to win the next two games. I hope that we will manage to do so in Zaprešić, I believe in my team concluded Burić".
