Rijeka will welcome Gorica to Stadion HNK Rijeka for a matchday 36 fixture in Croatia Prva HNL. The last meeting on 3rd April 2021 ended in a Rijeka 4-3 win. Both sides have met eleven times in the most recent seasons. Rijeka has won 2 matches, and Gorica triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.45 goals, while both teams score 45% of the time.

Rijeka's latest fixture against Varaždin ended in an away 3-2 win. Rijeka was very dangerous in attack, having attempted four shots on target. Rijeka was much better than Varaždin in the second half and scored in the 62nd, 67th and 79th minute.

Gorica's recent game against Dinamo Zagreb ended in a home 0-3 loss. Gorica's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

So far, Rijeka plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.72 points per away game on average compared to 1.67 points at home. Although Rijeka is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 28% home clean sheets.

Gorica has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Gorica has collected 1.67 points on average per away game, compared to 1.61 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Gorica kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Rijeka or Gorica to win.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.74 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Rijeka's home and Gorica's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
