Dinamo Beat Hajduk in Derby


Dinamo Zagreb have beaten Hajduk Split in front of just 6,000 fans in Croatia’s biggest football derby on Saturday night at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium.

The win extends Dinamo’s advantage over rivals Hajduk Split to 8 points. Hajduk Split got the perfect start, taking the lead in just over 30 seconds through Mijo Caktas. Dinamo equalised when new Croatian representative Sammir volleyed home.

Former Hajduk Split player Duje Cop made it 2-1 before Sammir scored his second from the penalty spot after Domagoj Vida was fouled.
