Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring stats of eight goals. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Nikola Kalinic (2), Ivan Ilic (2), and Davide Faraoni (1). Igor Tudor will know the risks of constantly leaking goals throughout the season, with 11 goals conceded so far. He needs to find a way to shore-up the defence, in order that opponents are unable to take advantage of this.
