What a phenomenal performance by Hajduk Split on home soil!
After conceding in the 61st minute of the match, Hajduk bounced back with three second half goals to take the first leg against Vitoria in Conference League qualifying! In front of a wonderful Poljud crowd, Hajduk completely controlled the match with 54% possession and 6 shots on target while holding Vitoria to only one shot through 90 minutes of action.
After Maga opened the scoreline for Vitoria with an outrageous strike, Emir Sahiti answered only six minutes later with a tap-in goal after Marko Livaja hit the far post. In the 75th minute, Dario Melnjak proved to be Hajduk’s hero once again with a terrific 1v1 finish off a bouncing volley inside the box. Just over 10 minutes later, Filip Krovinović sealed the victory with a terrific left-footed, near post strike. Hajduk will enter the second leg with a two-goal advantage over the Portuguese side.
CroatianSports Man of the Match: Filip Krovinović – what a performance from the attacking midfielder. If he keeps up his current form, clubs from all around Europe will come knocking.
