BSK Bijelo Brdo - Opatija

Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -0.25 BSK
Odds: 1.84
Stake: 1

Match date: 13/12/2020
In the 17th round of the 2nd Croatian league, home team BSK and guest Opatija (town near Rijeka) will play in Bijelo Brdo near Osijek from 1 pm.
Both clubs have rich private entrepreneurs (Vuković and Bogolin) as presidents and are among the few clubs in this league who don't have financial problems.
BSK even has first-league ambitions (if agrees cooperation with first-league club Osijek), while Opatija does not have them, but is still in second place with 28 points from 16 games, and BSK is seventh with 24 points. For both rivals, this is last game of the year, so they have nothing to save for.

Host played 1:1 in the last round on Wednesday with a very strong team of Dugopolje, but in that game coach Tomislav Steinbrückner could not use several important players (defensive midfielders Gbane and Muženjak, left winger Župan...).
All of them are ready for this match and that is very good news for BSK, which is due to injury missing only winger Čikvar, scorer of five goals this season. Very good Nigerian player Selbol will try to replace him in formation 4-2-3-1.

However, the most important thing for home team is to play the league's top scorer Marko Dabro (formerly a Fiorentina player), who scored 16 goals in 15 games. For this league, Dabro is a class and all defenses have big troubles with him, so Opatija could have too.

Guests set off on the 600-kilometer journey day before the match, but without several players and coach Zoran Bogolin, who is still ill. They mostly miss two standard defenders Maloku and Bertoša, and they also have a shortened rotation in attack because injured Matulja and Bilobrk (cards) are missing.

However, we received the most interesting information last night from hotel in Vinkovci where the guests slept. It was confirmed that one player was infected with Covid 19 and some others were not feeling well.

Same situation was two months ago when Opatija visited Čakovec and played against Međimurje. Several players had symptoms of the disease, but they played and lost smoothly 0:3. After that, 5-6 cases of Covid 19 infection were discovered.

BSK is favorite in this match anyway, because they don't remember defeat in the league since October 4, and they always play aggressively and offensively at home field. If the guests will not be able to compete with energy and race, then they can hardly expect anything other than defeat."
HALF LOST Score: 1:1 Profit: -0.5
