The 20th round of the SuperSport HNL in Poljud on Sunday at 5:45 p.m. will see the Hajduk players take on Rijeka to start the second half of the season.
Hajduk leads the championship table going into the second half of the season with 41 points from 19 games played, six more than Rijeka in second place (one less game) and seven more than Dinamo in third place (one less game).
Ismael Diallo, who had his third yellow card in the final game of the first half of the season and is currently away because of Ivory Coast's participation in the African Cup of Nations, is definitely not someone the coach of Hajduk can rely on for this encounter. Due to injuries, Dario Melnjak, Ferro, and Ivan Perišić, who recently joined Hajduk, remain missing.
Patrik Kolarić from Čakovec will serve as the match's primary referee. Goran Pataki from Đakovo and Ivan Starčević from Bjelovar will assist him, and Oliver Romić from Osijek will serve as the fourth referee.
