Race for the final two EL spots down to three now as Loko's loss to Osijek effectively eliminates them.

Osijek 56 (Rijeka H, Gorica A, Inter H)
Hajduk 56 (Rudes A, Istra H, Dinamo A)
Gorica 53 (Dinamo A, Osijek H, Loko A)

On paper Hajduk have the easier fixtures facing the bottom two in the next two rounds while Gorica-Osijek play next weekend so one if not both will drop points.

Rudes somehow still alive at the bottom after they beat Inter but they must win their three remaining fixtures and hope Istra don't pick up anymore points, unlikely. Istra have been pathetic all season, under Cvitanovic conceding goals like crazy but I doubt the 2.HNL team will beat them in a playoff

In the 2.HNL the championship will come down to the final day (May 18), Varazdin host Sibenik. Varazdin have a two point advantage. Dugopolje have an outside shot at the playoff spot but must win their final two games + hope Sibenik lose
