Šibenik vs Rijeka Prediction & Beting Tips 30.04.2022

Šibenik will welcome Rijeka to Stadion Šubićevac for a matchday 33 fixture in Croatia Prva HNL. The last meeting on 20th February 2022 ended in a Rijeka 4-2 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Šibenik has won 1 match, and Rijeka triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.86 goals, while both teams score 57% of the time.

Šibenik’s latest fixture against Hrvatski Dragovoljac ended in an away 3-1 loss. I expected more from Šibenik. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Šibenik was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 61st minute.

Rijeka’s recent game against Osijek ended in a home 3-1 win. Riječki bijeli dominated the game and deserved the win. Rijeka had good chances in both halves and scored in the 19th, 36th and 48th minute.

Since the start of the season, Šibenik is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 16 games on home soil. Although Šibenik is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 6% home clean sheets.

Rijeka has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Rijeka wins 1.63 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Rijeka kept a clean sheet in just 19% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Šibenik has won just 38% of home games. On average they score 1.38 goals and concede 1.88 per game. Rijeka is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Šibenik wins on average 1.19 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Rijeka. My prediction is Rijeka to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.25 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 63% of Šibenik’s home and Rijeka’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
