Rijeka form and stats

Playing away, Rijeka have won 6 games, drawn 1 and suffered 6 defeats in the 1. HNL this season. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Rijeka, as they have won on their previous two travels.

It's the second away game in a row for Rijeka, but there's smiles all around after the 4-3 victory versus Gorica (placed 3rd) in the 1. HNL last time out. Ahead of that match was the victory versus Slaven Koprivnica at their stadium, the result 3-1.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Gorica was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 7 goals, will the fun continue today?

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Rijeka manager G. Tomić as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Istra 1961.

Rijeka have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 13 league away games 17 goals have been scored. Rijeka's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 20 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The dueling parties have met before this season: Rijeka - Šibenik 2-2. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Šibenik won four games, four matches ended with a draw and Rijeka has two wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: four / six
