    You sure about that? - looks like a corner and then two from open play to me - but agree we had to withstand an early onslaught and the water break helped !

    As for the current comparison - Hibs deserved to finish above us last season, certainly on our showing from mid November onwards - the manager who had served us well (including during both the Rijeka ties) left his position after 8 years.

    This season we are being promised all the open expansive stuff - and we've seen the good and bad of it in both European matches vs the Swedish side BK Häcken. Hibs' manager is probably more of a pragmatist now - but I think in this league you need a bit of that.
    Look forward to watching this tie if it doesn't clash with the timing of our game in Iceland.
    Ooo, Aberdeen fan.

    Well, first time we were little bit "cocky" because we played two EL groups in a row. We had a good time, fighting with Dinamo for championship, and general opinion was: "Aberdeen? Mah, we are going through". So You teached us a lesson. Our former coach, Matjaž Kek, once told that in six years on Rijeka bench that was his worst defeat.

    However, aggregate 5-2 for Aberdeen was not realistic one. On the other hand, in second clash You did not stand a chance. Despite a fact that we had a much weaker team, obviously You did also.

    Well, if You were here, You can confirm that You had a good time as fans on both occassions.

    Half time. Dynamo Zagreb 2 Rijeka 3. A win would put Rijeka top of their league after 3 games.

    Looks like Rijeka 3 2 up away to Zagreb. Drmic just put a beauty in the top corner from 20 yards.

    Sounds like there could be goals for both teams! Zibi-esque keeper? Can we bring back Mallan? 😂

    Yes, the first win shocked us due to the home run in Europe you had been on (think we were told some good sides Sevilla, Standard, Ferencvaros, Feyenoord had all failed to win there).

    The second time round was actually a poor match in Croatia, looked like a 0-0 all the way, then a nothing handball penalty and a late second. We were dire at home, and Rijeka had an easy win - and yes, both teams levels had dropped a bit.

    I only got to the game in 2015, but loved the stadium and where we stayed, Opatija. Croatia is a superb country - like the west coast of Scotland, with some Italian/some Balkan culture and sunshine.

    Your club has class - AFC got this letter at the start of the Covid lockdown.

    Good game yesterday.

    Dinamo is CL quality team and they played all the best they have. So did we.

    Looking in history of our clashes with them in Zagreb, one of the bravest game we played ever.

    Our goalkeeper is responsible for two goals but in the same time he saved some really difficult shots. On the other side, we scored 3 fantastic goals, all of them in 90°.

    Very satisfied with performance and effort.

    Like us going to Celtic or Rangers and getting a draw. A good performance and result for you.
    Set up for a great match on Thursday.

    Absolute stunners. On the plus side they were all over the place defensively.

    I'd be starting with Doidge on the park and getting as many crosses in as possible.

    Just need to hope Macey has the reach for those shots from outside the box.

    Boyle, Allan, Nisbet and Doidge starting Thursday is a must. We need all our best attacking and creative players on the pitch for this one.

    On the plus side though their defending was poor and keeper looks murder.

    Rijeka scored 3 great goals but their goalkeeper looks terrible. Get Doidge on the pitch and get Boyle and Murphy putting balls in to the box and that keeper will struggle.

    Think their goalie missed the bus and they just got a random from the street to play.

    Šibenik, a club from our league.

    Do not judge him based on this game, he is a very promising young keeper.

    As I already mentioned, when we play against Dinamo we are doing bunch of stupid things we usually do not. Yesterday's game was not the exception, only difference is we gave 3 goals we usually do not.

    All superb long range efforts, block them and that'll do us. The goalie certainly had a mare. Didn't think they looked anything special and now believe we will go through.

    Ok, just watched whole game against Motherwell.

    I have to admit that You are right, when I spoke about Scottish style of play, I would say that Motherwell is more like it. Hibs are playing more like some club from continent, actually we are not much different regarding style of play.

    Nisbet is absolutely class and this Boyle is really pain in the ass for defenders.

    But Your defence gives me hope. You are talking about mistakes of our goalkeeper against Dinamo and Macey is, based on this game, not the best goalkeeper around. Also, You are leaving lot of space between midfield and defence, take a look at our goals against Dinamo yesterday, this is what we like.

    I expect that both coaches will choose more conservative approach. We will most likely play some version of 3-5-2, do not expect that we will star with two central defenders.

    I also do not know who will be able to play from our side, Muric is sidelined for three last games, I expect that he will be back against Hibs which will definitely make our attack more dangerous.

    But either way, I expect 2 good games and plenty of goals.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Watch the highlights below of our last ECL game against St Coloma.
