Ahead of the derby with Dinamo, head coach Damir Burić held a pre-match press conference at Poljud and said:
"We are aware of Dinamo's qualities but we also know our potential. We must show it on the pitch, it's always good to play at home, we will try to repeat some of the things that we presented in the previous home games. We don0t expect any surprises from Dinamo, they will probably play with the best team and it's going to be a real satisfaction to play with them now that they have qualified to the Champions League group stage. We will see our limits and capabilities in this game. We have a plan for each game and we know what to expect from Dinamo".
