The 10th round of the Premier League was a relatively uneventful affair, with hosts dominating most of the matches. One of the few surprises came in the Varaždin vs Osijek match, where Varaždin managed to come back from a 5-0 deficit and win 35-29. In this match, Fabijan Grubišić finally played in his own style and scored an incredible 15 goals from just 19 attempts.
In the second half, Matej Mišković’s team tried to break Osijek’s defense and they were successful in doing so in the last ten minutes. However, Zagreb’s game against Gorica was much more interesting. Despite resting key players like Matej Mandić, Ivan Čupić and Patryk Walczak, Zagreb still managed to achieve another great victory over Gorica. Gorica showed some teeth during this match, leading by a goal or two in the first half before Zagreb raised their defense to a higher level and scored seven goals in just one minute. By halftime, the difference between the two teams had been reduced to just one goal.
The Karlovac vs Trogir match was also closely contested, with Trogir taking an early lead but ultimately falling short against the hosts. In this match, Dominik Smojver was once again instrumental in Karlovac’s success, scoring eight goals for them. Moslavina also gave Sesvete a tough time before eventually winning their match against them. Igor Vori’s team defeated Moslavina only in the last 15 minutes after being tied at 26-26 earlier on in the game. Patrik Hršak scored eight goals for Sesvete while Filip Perić made 13 saves for Moslavina.
Finally, Rudar won painlessly against Kaštela in their derby from behind thanks to a real fight that lasted only ten minutes before they managed to score enough points and win convincingly at home with Tomislav Grgečić scoring ten goals and Vladimir Gošić making ten saves for Rudar
