The Slaven vs. Rudes match will be played on Thursday, March 28, at the Gradski Stadium, Koprivnica. This is the first match of NHL round 26. Slaven is currently 8th on the table with 22 points, while Rudes is 10th with only 7 points at the moment.
These teams played seven matches against each other in the recent history. Slaven recorded two wins, Rudes had two wins as well, while three matches ended in a draw. In their last four matches we saw under 2.5 goals.
With a series of bad results, Slaven came in danger of relegation, since Istra is only five points behind them. The upcoming match might be crucial for their season. If they win, they will probably stay clear above the relegation zone until the end of the season.

Rudes is the team that has been climbing steadily through the ranks in the last 15 years and they finally achieved promotion to the top tier league in Croatia in 2017. They finished the first season on the 8th place and everybody expected they will improve further, but they are currently having a horrible season. Their first victory came only two weeks ago and even though there is a theoretical chance for them staying in the league, it's unlikely to happen.
