Over in Croatia's top flight, league-leaders Rijeka host Slavan Bulupo as they continue their quest to deny Dinamo Zagreb a 12th consecutive league title. Rijeka sit at the summit of the division with a unbeaten record this term, winning 19 and drawing five of their 24 games thus far. In fact it's been over a year since they last tasted defeat in the league, winning 28 and drawing nine since. They are also the only side in the division to have won 100% of their home matches (11/11), while they boast both the best attack and strongest defence in the division. Their opponents this afternoon, Slavan Belupo, sit mid-table as it stands, but have accumulated 55% less points than the leaders this term. They are winless in 2017, losing three of their four outings, failing to score in three. Belupo have claimed maximum points just once on the road this season, netting just four goals from 11 matches, failing to score in eight of their last 10 away games. Rijeka are well on their way to destroy Zagreb's domestic dominance and go into this match favourites for all three points.
The final Premier League fixture of March sees Liverpool travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City. The Citizen's have scored in 23 of their 27 Premier League games this season, conceding in 19, netting and shipping an average of 2.0 and 1.1 goals respectively. At home they have failed to score in just one of their 13 league games, but have also kept just three clean sheets. Liverpool have scored in 24 of their 28 league games this season, conceding in 75% in the process, averaging 2.1 and 1.3 goals per game respectively. On their travels they have both netted and conceded in 11 of their 14 fixtures domestically. 77% of Manchester City's home games and 64% of Liverpool's away matches have been both sides find the back of the net. Nine of the last 11 competitive meetings between the clubs have also seen both teams score, with the same number of those also producing at least three goals and six seeing four or more goals. This is arguably the fixture of the weekend in the Premier League and if past meetings and recent form are anything to go by we should be in for another cracker.
