CFL: Osijek – (+0.25) INTER ZAPRESIC
(1,83@Pinnacle, 1.80 @SBO, 1.79@ 12Bet)
I really don't see why is Osijek favourite in this one. Osijek has only won 2 points after the winter break – in a goalless draw vs fellow strugglers Istra at home, and away at Hajduk Split, where they score equaliser in 95th minute. As usual, the have selection problems – Sorsa and Saric are suspended, Mikulic and Pongracic are injured, while Arsenic has not yet fully recovered after injury. Vojnovic and Knezevic will have to play in this one, although they're not ready for 90 minutes of football after injurie. Osijek has only 1 win in the last 10 matches – away at Zagreb, who strongly holds the last position since the beginning of the season. They conceeded 8 goals in the last 4 matches, and I can definitely see them conceeding a goal or two today.
Inter Zapresic are still undefeated after the winter break. In fact, 3 wins and 2 draws make them 2nd best team this spring, after 10-years-in-a-row champions Dinamo. Goalless draw vs Hajduk in the last round was the only match this „spring“ they failed to score, and since they have the best goalscorer of the league (Nestorovski), I can't see them failing to score once again. Condition of the pitch won't be perfect, but as goalkeeper Covic put it – „you can see that we're doing pretty well on arable lands“. When these two teams played this summer, Osijek won 3:1, but first two goals were score from at least doubtful penalties (2nd one in 87th minute).
