Hajduk played a great, hard-fought game with Osijek at Poljud stadium and in the end they managed to beat their very good opponent. Hajduk won 3:2, which was their eight consecutive home win this season, but if we take into account the end of last season, it was the 12th consecutive home victory. The last draw at Poljud took place in April, when Hajduk hosted Osijek.
"Congratulations to the players on a very brave approach and fighting spirit, the match was very intensive, with many chances and of high intensity. I expected such a match because I'm familiar with the quality of both teams. At the beginning we were a bit under pressure but then we started to play as we wanted. We didn't score enough goals in the first half to end this match without pressure. We could have been leading 3:0 but we conceded that goal that looked like it was scored from offside position, which had some influence on our game, so we looked a bit lost at the beginning of the second half. However, we showed our character and deserved this victory, especially because that last goal was really attractive. The squad showed that the right approach" said head coach Damir Burić.
