In 2016 we decided to start providing Croatian HR Nogometni Cup betting tips to you lovely folk. Hopefully you enjoy reading up a bit about the competition and the value we can provide when betting on it.
What is it?
The Croatian HR Nogometni Cup, known in the English-speaking world as the Croatian Football Cup, is the premier cup competition in Croatian football.
The cup’s 48 teams are selected based on three criteria:
- The top 16 teams as decided by the Croatian Football Federation, taking into account their last five season
- The 21 winners of regional cup competitions from each of Crotia’s counties are included
- 11 unsuccessful finalists from the counties with the highest number of active football clubs are also allowed entry
The cup’s significance in wider European football is that the winner is granted entry into the UEFA Europa League. If the winners of the Croatian Prva Liga – who gain entry into the Champions League – also win the cup, the other finalist is awarded Europa League football.

Why we love the Croatian HR Nogometni Cup
Since the turn of the century, the competition has largely been dominated by Dinamo Zagreb, who enjoy a similar supremacy in the Prva Liga.
Upsets do happen, and Dinamo didn’t feature in either the 2010 or 2013 final, but since the year 2000, the Zagreb side have lifted the trophy 10 times. The gulf in quality in the competition between Dinamo and the other sides is so great that, unless you fancy an upset, the champions are almost always a safe bet.
