Maximir’s precious draw with Dinamo (3-3) closed soon after, and Rijeka was already back on the European track. The team will board a flight to Scotland this evening, and tomorrow at 8.45pm Easter Road Stadium in Edinburgh will host the first match of the third preliminary round of the Conference League against Hibernian (refereeed by Juan Martinez of Spain). This is the second most notable phase in group demand after Jira United. Given the significance of this delicate duel, they did not want to miss any opportunity by focusing exclusively on Rujevika and Scotts, deciding to postpone the match against the locomotive, which was originally scheduled for Sunday. The hysterical rhythms of this start of the season (tomorrow will be the sixth match in just twenty days). Amid the injuries and positivity in Kovid-19, the formation remains a puzzle, with Goren hoping Tommy will recover some of the pledges. Adrian Liber is most likely to be in the game. Rijeka proves that the young metronome from the midfield is an increasingly important factor in Tomic’s schemes, adapting to any shape.
The goal is to win the round – the 2001 class that grew up in the Rijeka Youth teams goes straight to the point -. We care about Europe and we want to push ourselves as far as possible. The time to analyze the opponent and prepare the game in the best possible way is to play a little bit every 3-4 days, which complicates things a bit, but this speech is valid for everyone, so we have to be smart in making an advantage out of the need. In my opinion, the main thing in this double encounter will be hunger. We are two teams on paper, so the inspirational aspect will make a difference. The one who shows the greatest desire to succeed will pass the pass.
“PAOK Last Thoughts”
In the previous round, Hibernian easily eliminated the humble Andoranis of Santa Coloma and made his league debut (Sunday) with a 3-2 return to Motherwell in the league (on Magnies, Doidge and Boyle penalties).
So the Hibbs are more innovative, but still looking for their own gaming identity. On the contrary, Goren Tomic’s army finds more solid automatics, although there are more toxins in the legs. “Starting from this beginning is a game that is hard to read. Of course you feel a little tired yourself, but finding excuses is hard. On the other hand, it is a fact that playing very close matches helps one to get to know each other better on the pitch and to understand the movements of teammates.
Rejeka wants to cross the curve. In the playoffs he will most likely challenge PAOK Thessaloniki, which should not face particular problems against the Bohemian Irish. In any case, it would be utterly exaggerated to speak of the value of the Greeks, who are now the least in our thoughts. Let’s try to overtake the Scots first and then have plenty of time to think about our next opponents, ”concludes Adrian Liber.
