After 11 consecutive titles, GNK Dinamo Zagreb handed the trophy to the HNK Rijeka who deserved it. In 36 matches, Rijeka won 27, tied 11 and lost only 2 matches. That was enough to beat Dinamo by two points. They’ve confirmed the title in the last leg, but there was one more match to play – against the Dinamo on their stadium in Zagreb.

Honestly, I thought that Dinamo won’t be motivated and Rijeka will because I believe they really wanted to defeat the “mighty”. But, what the hell happened? The first halftime ended 3-0 for Dinamo, and by the end of the match, Dinamo defeated Rijeka 5-2.

One of the best things from the match were the Rijeka’s fans – Armada. The whole south stand of the Maksimir stadium (+ a couple of hundred on the west stand) where creating an amazing atmosphere.

Here are the images I got last night.
