A great night for Croatian clubs involved in UEFA Europa League qualifying on Thursday.
Dinamo Zagreb, Hajduk Split, and NK Osijek have all progressed to the UEFA Europa League qualification playoff. Last night NK Rijeka progressed through to the UEFA Champions League playoff.
Dinamo Zagreb ground out a 0-0 in Norway against Odd after having a man sent off. Dinamo Zagreb progress 2-1 on aggregate thanks to the win at Maksimir stadium last week.

NK Osijek have caused a huge upset by knocking out Dutch side PSV Eindhoven. A wonderful free-kick from 18 metres out from Bočkaja in the 25th minute was enough to give Osijek a 1-0 win on the night in Osijek and a 2-0 win on aggregate.

Meanwhile Hajduk Split have beaten Danish side Brondby 2-0 in front of a packed Poljud stadium thanks to double from Ante Erceg.
After a scoreless first half, Erceg broke the deadlock in the 59th minute, before grabbing his second of the night 4 minutes later to send Hajduk through 2-0 on aggregate.
