In the semi-finals of the Cup at Aldo Drosina on March 2014, Istria faced Rijeka and attracted a record 7,500 spectators. The Pula stadium had never before hosted a Croatian team that could break this record. This Sunday, Hajduk from Split will be in Pula, and the central western stand is already sold out as well as the southern part where Hajduk fans will be seated. There are only four tickets left for the eastern stand, but they are likely to sell out by Sunday.
As of now, there are 7,654 tickets sold, which means that the previous record has been broken five days before the game. Hajduk leads the championship with Istra 1961 gaining momentum after not conceding a goal in two consecutive games. The excitement builds as people anticipate an action-packed match on Sunday.
Hajduk from Split have not won against Istria in over 497 days since their last victory on July 17, 2022 in Pula when they scored goals by Melnjak and Livaja to win 2-0.
