National team obligations have finished, and Osijek has fully prepared for Lokomotiva and the visit to Zagreb, where they will ask for a break from the two consecutive defeats. Coach Nenad Bjelica gave the players three days off to take a break from football, and Laszlo Kleinheisler and Merveil Ndockyt were given a few more days off to take extra rest. Recently in media, champion ambitions of Osijek were laughed, because they failed in Istra and at home against Dinamo Zagreb. They were really exhausted after losing in the Europa Conference League against Bulgarian CSKA Sofia, but today will be fully focused. Lokomotiva sold their wonderkid Roko Simic to Salzburg and weakened their attack, which will be a huge blow. Osijek knows how to play against Lokomotiva winning in their last 4 mutual matches, and I think that Bjelica will find the way to get back on the winning way.
