With a bad referee's decision, Opatija was left without an excluded player early on, and from 36th minute they reached the guests' result advantage. In the 90th minute, Šarac managed to equalize the score and bring a point that in a situation where both opponents are, does not mean much.
Opatija failed to take a point(s) in Zagreb that would extend the hope of avoiding relegation. The only goal was scored by Kukoč in 90 + 1 min from the penalty kick.
