Croatian Footballers Rule Serie A: Rebić Hat-Trick, Goals for Brozović and Pašalić

May 13, 2021 - It was an incredible evening for Croatian footballers in Serie A on Wednesday, with an Ante Rebić hat-trick and goals for Marcelo Brozović and Mario Pašalić among the highlights. 

Croatian footballers were extremely efficient in the 36th round of Serie A on Wednesday, and they were led by an Ante Rebić hattrick which he achieved in just 12 minutes! 

On Wednesday night, the 36th round matches of the Italian football championship were played, and the most convincing was Milan, who won 7:0 away against Torino.

Milan's last three goals were scored by Ante Rebić (67', 72', 79'), who previously recorded one assist when he played Theo Hernandez for 4:0 in the 62nd minute. The Croatian striker played until the 80th minute when Mario Mandžukić replaced him. Rebić has now recorded 11 goals this season. 

 

The newly crowned champion of Italy also joined the Croatian scoring spree as Marcelo Brozović scored Inter's leading goal in the home clash against Roma. He was precise in the 11th minute, and Inter won 3:1. Brozović played from start to finish, and Ivan Perišić left the match in the 59th minute. 

 

This was Brozović's second goal of the season and the first after October 31 last year in Inter's draw against Parma.

Mario Pašalić scored in Atalanta's victory against Benevento just eight minutes after entering the game in the 59th minute. The Bergamo side celebrated 2:0. This was Pašalić's fifth goal of the season. Boško Šutalo remained among the reserves. 

 

Genoa beat Bologna with the same result on the road, with Milan Badelj assisting Zappacosti for the leading goal after 13 minutes of play. However, Badelj soon came off due to an injury, and Marko Pjaca played in the final ten minutes.

Inter has already won the title, but the fight for the Champions League is more than dramatic. There are three spots and four candidates. For now, Atalanta (75), Milan (75), and Napoli (73) are in, while Juventus is fifth with 72 points.

Marcelo Brozovic Tests Positive for Coronavirus, Misses Sweden

November 14, 2020 - The latest from HNS, as Marcelo Brozovic tests positive for coronavirus and misses the Nations League match against Sweden tonight.

HNS reports that on Friday evening, the Croatia national football team medical service received the results of the additional testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

After national team member Domagoj Vida tested positive on Wednesday in Istanbul, on Friday in Stockholm, the Croatia national team performed additional testing before the match against Sweden on Saturday.

The test results showed two positive results, one national team member Marcelo Brozovic and one member of the national team's wider staff, which is likely to be a positive due to an old infection (prolonged positivity). Both were immediately isolated from other members of the national team.

Brozovic's club Inter, as well as Swedish epidemiologists, were informed about the positive test result. Following UEFA's Return to Play protocol, i.e., epidemiological measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, none of the other national team members need self-isolation.

Croatian coach Zlatko Dalic held a press conference in Stockholm on Friday, where the current World Cup finalists will compete against the national team of Sweden.

"We came to play a good game, to ensure our stay in the elite group, but we will not play for a point but a victory. If we play for a point, we will lose. A tough opponent awaits us - we respect Sweden; they were better in the second half of the Zagreb game, even though we won. We will not be comfortable, but I believe in my team, and I believe that we can achieve our goal. "

The defense requires progress

"Sweden surprised me in Zagreb in the second half, when they were much better than in the first, even though we know their quality. Berg is their leader, Kulusevski imposed himself, Forsberg is there - someone can always do something. Our goal is to save our net, to be better in the defense phase."

Everyone is ready to play

"So far, the situation is fine; no one is injured. Livakovic and Petkovic have joined us, and I think we will be able to play the best possible squad."
