Lokomotiva vs Rijeka
Odds for away win are very good for this match. Lokomotiva is playing really bad at the moment. With the transfer of their target man Budimir in Germany (St. Pauli) they lost a main threat in attack and that reflected in later games. Although being a talented young team, that sometimes isn't enough against strong, disciplined teams (like Istra for example). And thats always the problem with young squads – they have those weird moments were they lose games that are practically won through some bad decision and lack of composure. They are at the bottom of the table with only one win (in five games) against Osijek away (while Budimir was still part of the squad).
On the other hand, we have Rijeka that looks invincible for a long period of time. They won 17 games in a row now (in all competitions including Uefa Europa league) and that information alone is good enought to make them clear favourites for Lokomotiva clash. Not only that, they haven't lost any important players from last season but quite the opposite – they signed some good players like Jajalo, Samard?i? and youngster Canadzija. First name on the squad is Kramaric who is scoring almost at will this season (9 goals in 5 matches) which earned him a call for a national team.
Playing only few days after exhausting game against Sheriff in UEL won't be a problem for coach Kek. They are doubled at every position and there won't be any loss of quality if he decides to rest some players.
Kek's plan is to win remaining 4 games before short break for national teams clashes and I think that is a realistic thing, starting with Lokomotiva on Sunday.
Pick Rijeka Odds 1.66
