Match date: 16/07/2021

At the start of the new Championship of the best Croatian clubs, in Osijek from 9 pm CET, the host and Šibenik will play. Osijek finished second last season and that is smallest goal in the new season, while Šibenik, weakened by a few of the best players, will have the first task to stay in the league, avoid last tenth place, which only leads to a lower rank.

Full of self-confidence and faith in a good start, Osijek starts this season in which they will have clear and highly emphasized ambitions. Coach Nenad Bjelica kept all the most important players, including the best scorer in the league Ramon Mierez, and brought several new ones, which will intensify the competition in team - Hiroš (Mladost Kakanj), Gržan (Istra 1961), Bralić (Vojvodina), Nejašmić (Hajduk), Mance (Puskas), Malenica (Diosgyör), Grgić (Diosgyör).

For the first match against Šibenik, Bjelica cannot count on the captain and leader of the defense Škorić, and the Hungarian midfielder Kleinheisler, but even without them, goal of the home team is a sure victory and the announcement of a fight for a very high ranking.

- My wish is to show this season how we can deal with our best teams. We will see at the end of the season what it will look like, but we want to win one trophy - said Nenad Bjelica, whose team beat Bačka Topola from Serbia 3:0 in the last test match.

At the start of new season, Šibenik first league team goes on the most distant visit to the 1. HNL. Last season, apart from being the longest journey in kilometers for the Dalmatian club, it also proved to be the most difficult. Namely, in all four last season's matches with Osijek, Šibenik remained short-sleeved, regardless of whether they played on the Drava river city or on the shores of the Adriatic sea. And without scoring a goal against Slavonians (0:2, 0:1, 0:4, 0:3).

In the new season, Šibenik has been redesigned considerably, there are a dozen new players, of which only 3-4 will play in the first 11 in Osijek.

Top scorer Jurić (Dinamo Zagreb), captain Bulat (Dinamo Zagreb), winger Ampem (Rijeka), goalkeeper Labrović (Rijeka), best defender Schildenfeld (Aris Limassol) and midfielder E. Sahiti (Hajduk) left, and the change is related for the coaching bench on which now sits the Spaniard Mario Rosas.

The 41-year-old Andalusian is announcing a new Šibenik, with new demands, game plans that he hopes will bring a lot of good things, but his team is still far from the form and coordination in lines and this is a very difficult challenge for guests.

Although itis the beginning of new season, Osijek is a well-organized and very high-quality team that is otherwise very successful at its Gradski vrt stadium. Šibenik is a new team, much weaker than last season when it was sixth, but in summer preparations tended to play offensively and scored. For example, two goals against Spartak Moscow and Zrinjski Mostar. This match is for the guests without imperatives, they will not just defend and that is why three goals in total should be a realistic scenario in Osijek.
