Istra 1961 achieved a victory in its last match for the competition and left the last position. Against Rijeka, the team has another opportunity, at home, to add the three points and get out of the relegation zone. The team needs to go over the opponent seeking to dominate the confrontation with ball possession, strong pressing to not give space to the rival, besides attacking with speed to overcome the opponent's defense.

In 8 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times but have turned the score around in 2.

Rijeka makes a good campaign and tries to get close to the top placed, so it should try to dominate the match, even playing at his rival's home. Touching the ball and physical imposition can be the team's weapons in this confrontation. In addition, it needs strength in the attack to overcome the opponent's defense, maintaining a collective and organized game to reach the rival's area and score the goal.
