Dinamo Zagreb battle Zadar to 2-0 victory

Dinamo Zagreb maintained their one-point lead on Hajduk Split with a 2-0 victory over NK Zadar. The relegation threatened Zadar were under siege early by Krunoslav Jurčić's side early but things were getting tense for Zagreb as a number of qualities chances went without a mark. Finally three minutes from the hour veteran Igor Bišcan took matters into his own hands as a poorly cleared cross into the box bounded to him before he volleyed-in. As time wound down Ivan Tomečak's free-kick from the right was headed-in to the far left post by Mario Mandžukic to bring the match to a 2-0 final.

Dinamo Zagreb returns to pay on 3 May against Europa League candidate HNK Rijeka.
