The one year experiment of the HNS to expand the Croatian league by four teams is now underway. In it’s first week, Dinamo Zagreb showed us why they will undoubtedly be the best club in Croatia this season while Hajduk Split struggled to even earn one point against NK Osijek.
Dinamo should win the league this year by a 12 point margin.
Here are the 1st Round results for July 24-26th…
Dinamo Zagreb [7 – 1] NK Istra 1961
