Desire will be key, warns Hajduk boss
Hajduk Split coach Stanko Poklepovic expects the weather to play a big part in Wednesday's Europa League clash with AEK Athens.
Group F leaders Zenit St Petersburg, who boast a 100% record, have already qualified for the next round, but for the other three teams, separated by just one point, there is still everything to play for.
Hajduk lost 3-1 in Athens back in September, but with heavy rain again forecast in a country which has been hit by flooding in recent weeks, Poklepovic knows Wednesday's game is wide open.
"It will be difficult to play at the top level - the pitch and weather conditions won't really suit either us or them," he was quoted as saying on www.hajduk.hr.
"I think hunger for victory, passion and desire will be decisive, rather than good football.
"Our build-up has been calm, there's no euphoria, but don't doubt that the crowd will be our 12th player."
He believes the game will come down to the players holding their nerve.
He said: "We have some individuals who can make a difference and can be decisive, but I think it will be more a case of whoever makes fewer mistakes.
"There will be some changes in our team, but but I'm not saying who. I am optimistic because Zenit and Anderlecht are perceived as better teams than AEK."
AEK go into the match on the back of a morale-boosting win over table-topping Olympiacos in the Greek Super League, Ismael Blanco scoring the only goal in the last minute of the game.
The Athens side have suffered from inconsistency this season but the weekend's result gave real hope that Manolo Jiminez, who took over as coach in October, is starting to get the best out of his players.
A loss for either side would end their hopes of progression should Anderlecht spring a surprise against Zenit.
"I'm sure our players will do their best, we are interested only in victory, and we strive for it," added Poklepovic.
"AEK have to be respected, they've changed the coach, just like me, and are playing a different system.
"They will do everything possible to defeat us."
AEK sink Split
Second-half goals by Nacho Scocco, Kostantinos Manolas and Ismael Blanco guided AEK Athens to a 3-1 victory over Hajduk Split to leave the Greek side three points clear in second place in Group G of the Europa League.
Scocco put AEK ahead in the 50th minute with a penalty after a foul by Mario Maloca on Nathan Burns with Manolas doubling the lead a little more than 10 minutes later.
Blanco then rounded off the win when he slotted home with six minutes to go and although Jurica Buljat pulled one back in the final minute it was nothing more than a consolation for Hajduk who are bottom of the table with just one win.
Both sides were desperate for victory as Zenit St Petersburg continue to storm clear at the top of the group with a 100% record after five games and they came into the game with just one point separating them.
The hosts threatened first, a shot by Anas Sharbini hitting the post in the third minute.
Nikos Liberopoulos had AEK's first shot of note but his attempt went over the bar with clear-cut openings hard to come by in the opening stages.
Marin Tomasov's shot was blocked by Manolas and the same player had an effort gathered by AEK keeper Diego Sebastian Saja.
There was little attacking of note at the end of an increasingly scrappy first half but just five minutes after the break the visitors were ahead.
Maloca fouled Burns and the resulting spot-kick was sent into the bottom left-hand corner by Scocco.
The same player then turned provider in the 61st minute, his inswinging corner from the right was met by Manolas who headed home into the top-right corner of the goal to give the Greeks a commanding lead.
AEK then rounded off victory when Sahel Jahic passed from the right and Blanco sent home a right-footed shot into the bottom right of the goal.
The hosts pulled one back in the 90th minute when Buljat swept home from Senijad Ibricic's cross from the left but it was nothing more than a consolation.
The result leaves AEK three points clear of Anderlecht who were beaten by Zenit St Petersburg.
