Dinamo Zagreb have secured another Prva Liga title this weekend, despite playing to a 0-0 draw against HNK Gorica on Saturday.
A win would have secured the trophy, but the draw forced the Plavi to wait an extra day while NK Lokomotiva officially secured it for them with a 3-2 victory over Hajduk Split as well as a little help from Slaven Belupo who defeated Rijkea 1-0. The losses of Hajduk and Rijeka combined with the single point obtained by Dinamo gave the champions a 19-point lead, which mathematically is insurmountable and the Plavi are crowned champs.
Hajduk Split’s match was a tale of two halves; Mijo Caktaš managed to put his team in the lead nearly instantly with a third-minute goal. He doubled the lead in the 36th minute, but Hajduk failed to keep up the intensity and Denis Kolinger scored in first half stoppage time for Lokomotiva. Indrit Tuci tied the match in the 66th minute with a curing shot that was placed in the upper-90 of the goal, but Kolinger secured the winner in the 96th minute.
Slaven Belupo welcomed Rijeka with a 1-0 defeat on Sunday. Slaven’s lone goal came in the 29th minute from Mateus Lima.
Osijek also found victory this weekend with a 1-0 win over Inter Zaprešic. Osijek sit in third place, one point behind Lokomotiva.
