‘70%’ Hajduk Keep UEFA Europa League Dream Alive

CroatiaCroatian side Hajduk Split have scored a vital away goal in Ukraine last night in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League play-off against Dnjipro…

Coach Igor Tudor believes that the 1-2 scoreline leaves the return leg at Split’s Poljud stadium wide open.

“If it stayed at 1:1, or like it finished 2:1 to Dnjipro, we still have to win in Split. It is a shame we conceded the second goal, but the result still leaves it open for revenge, and we have to win if we want to think about qualifying,” Tudor said, before adding that his side were only playing to 70% of what they are capable of.

“Two things are important, that the tie is still open, and that I am convinced we can play a lot better than we did. We were at 70%,” Tudor
concluded.

Croatia’s other three clubs, Dinamo Zagreb, Split, Rijeka, who are still in with a chance of UEFA Europa League football play the first leg of their quaifiers tonight.
