Should be a comfortable win. I'm talking about winning the whole Euros. Just crown us the champs already. :D

So being that we’re moving down leagues in UNL, we HAVE to finish 1st or 2nd in our group to advance, correct?

The Azeri’s might be the only ‘gimme’ here in terms of qualifiers. We can’t afford to sleep walk through this one and draw. Get a few goals on the board early and throw some subs in and roll to a comfortable victory. I don’t want that last second bullshit we usually do vs. teams below our level.

If we somehow finish 3rd in the group we could possibly get a playoff chance through League A since most of those teams will qualify directly except maybe iceland

Just wondering about our RB and LB options with Vrsaljko and Pivaric out for the season and Strinic just coming back but not playing at Milan the obvious choice of course would be Jedvaj, but is Sosa or Barisic the first choice for LB. Does anyone else see Benkovic as a contender for this campaign yet, playing regular for Celtic and amongst the fans favourites now but obviously still qualifies for the U21 squad ?
Obviously this match should be the easiest but I ve got a feeling it will be tougher than we think! MY guess is 6-0!

croatian batman February 6th, 2019 13:45

Lovren is out for Azeribijan as well, I’d give Benkovic a go. He’s been good in scotland from everything I’ve read? I thinks Caleta-Car will play more Pongracic at Salzburg has been quite good from all reports. We have some cover there to be honest.


RB will be Jedvaj baring an injury there we really don’t have any cover. LB Sosa, Barisic, Bradaric or Leovac. Whomever is playing and playing well to be honest. I hope Sosa gets a run of games at Stuttgart.

Nikola Jurcevic is the new Azerbaijan manager

SuhoZD February 20th, 2019 09:36

I think we'll see something like this:

Kalinić - Jedvaj, Barišić, Ćaleta-Car, Vida - Brozović, Rakitić - Perišić, Modrić, Rebić - Kramarić.

Seems like the best we can do with the current injury and form situation

What is the status of Kalinić? I thought I read he was injured on the weekend

He walked out on us in the WC. Good riddance to him.

The Kalinic I was talking about got injured pulling splinters out of his a.ss on AM's bench. :D

Darijo Srna to return to NT duty to cover RB position with Vatreni missing Vrsaljko and top 2 LBs??


Ero_Hercegovac February 27th, 2019 05:16

It's a good short term fill i guess with the opponents we have in March. I'd prefer to throw Bartolec into the fire for RB.

dinamozagreb86 February 27th, 2019 05:38

I'm with Ero H on this one. Prefer a young RB get a feel for the NT. Will probably see Jedvaj move to that position in all likelihood.

But man are we in trouble at that position, I'd have nothing against Darijo making a comeback and helping us these qualifiers.

dinamozagreb86 February 27th, 2019 10:54

Yep if that were to happen I wouldn't be against it either. Honestly, would be fun to watch him play for the NT again for a few games.

croatian batman February 27th, 2019 14:43

If we can’t beat Azerbaijan with Bartolec at RB we’re in trouble.

Leave Jedvaj at RB, Vida, Caleta-Car, Pongaric at CB and Bradaric/Barisic at LB. This backline should be enough for Azerbaijan and Hungary.

Probably, though we're missing Šime for the entire qualifiers.
