On Sunday, Hajduk from Split will face off against Istra 1961 in the Cup match at Aldo Drosina stadium. The event is expected to draw a large crowd, with 7,654 tickets already sold. The northern stand still has 1,246 seats available, but they are likely to be snapped up quickly.
The record for attendance at Pula stadium was set in March 2014 when Istria met Rijeka in the semi-finals of the Cup. At that time, 7,500 spectators gathered at the stadium. However, this Sunday’s match could surpass that record as more fans flock to see Hajduk take on Istra 1961.
Istra has been on the rise lately and has not conceded a goal in two consecutive games. This has led to excitement and anticipation for the upcoming match. Meanwhile, Hajduk is currently leading the championship and is looking to maintain their position on top of the table.
The people of Split have not beaten Istria for nearly 497 days, with their last victory coming on July 17, 2022 in Pula. They won that game 2-0, with goals scored by Melnjak and Livaja.
