#90 // Petković → Oršić Dinamo Zagreb 1 – 0 Viktoria Plzeň

A Croatian team, a Czech team.

And a masterful assist for the opening goal—in this Europa League knockout phase.




14 minutes in.

Dinamo down 2-1 in aggregate goals, after the first leg in Pilsen.

Now home in Zagreb.


And Bruno Petković is charging down the wing with the ball close to his feet.

Then a cutback, another cutback, a defender on the ground, and then…


The backheel, the dummy, the  goal—Mislav Oršić.


Another several views of it here:




In the end, Dinamo Zagreb won 3-0, and 4-2 in the aggregate.

Moving on into the Round of 16.


One of those Champions League habitués, without the might to get past the group stages.

And this year the Europa League, with a good Benfica team waiting in the next round.


Probably not enough firepower to make a run at anything.

But this Bruno Petković…





A name worth remembering…

From the non-renowned world of the Croatian Football League.
