Lokomotiv Zagreb vs Osijek Prediction & Match Preview

Lokomotiv Zagreb vs NK Osijek
Croatia – 1. Division
Date: Sunday, 7 June 2020
Kick-Off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stadion u Kranjčevićevoj ulici (Zagreb)

The new and improved Lokomotiv have been dominating the league in terms of form. They have won all matches after the defeat to Hajduk back in February. From the 26 games, they have 14 wins and 8 defeats. They are still in contention for that automatic promotion to Champions League qualification. So we can expect an interesting game this Sunday.

Osijek has returned to winning ways after a 3 match winless run. The recent win against Varazdin was their 11th for the season, in which they have lost 6 also. With the hosts in a prime form, they will have to be literally perfect to win this one.

Lokomotiv Zagreb vs NK Osijek: Prediction

Osijek is currently on a winless run which includes three back to back defeats. They do not have a clear advantage in head to head games either. But with just a win in 12 games, I do not think they will be able to trouble LOK at home. The hosts are on a 6 match win streak at home also. So I am going with Lokomotiv to win on Sunday.

Osijek may not be winning gems but they have a great attacking lineup. They have scored 38 goals in the 26 games so far. They have scored against teams like Rijeka who is second in the table. Also, considering the defense of Locomotive I am backing both teams to get goals.
