Varaždin's latest fixture against Lokomotiva Zagreb ended in an away 4-0 loss. Varaždin dominated the possession of the ball but didn't take advantage of it.

Istra 1961's recent game against Rijeka ended in a home 1-2 loss. Verudeži had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Istra 1961 put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 44th minute.

Since the start of the season, Varaždin is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 16 games on home soil. Although Varaždin 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 0% home clean sheets.

Istra 1961 has picked up 1 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Istra 1961 wins 0.56 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Istra 1961 kept a clean sheet in just 13% 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 Varaždin or Draw.

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 47% of Varaždin's home and Istra 1961's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
