The Croatian Cup semifinals concluded Wednesday night with Hajduk Split and Lokomotiva each reaching the final after their second leg ties. After a 2-1 win in Koprivnica last week, a 1-1 draw was good enough for Hajduk to progress to the final. However, it did not come without nerves at Poljud. Slaven’s 21 year-old midfielder Dejan Glavica put his club up 1-0 in the 32nd minute with no reply from Hajduk until the 72nd minute, when Antonio Milić would rescue the bijeli with a goal. Hajduk currently sit in second place on the Prva Liga table, one point in front of Lokomotiva.
Lokomotiva pounced on Cibalia Wednesday night in Zagreb, winning 3-0 after a 1-1 first leg draw in Vinkovci. Goals from Šitum (19′), Antolić (43′) and Kramarić (89′) were good enough for the victory as a Zagreb side not named Dinamo will contest Hajduk for the Cup. Andrej Kramarić is having a fantastic season, leading his side to the final while being tied atop the Prva Liga goal scoring lead (15 goals) alongside Rijeka’s Leon Benko. The Final will be contested over two legs on May 8th and 22nd.
