Croatian biggest derby really lived up to its name this time. Pyro shows, coreographies, fights v police, all included. But lets go step by step.

In the opening of the game, Torcida raised a choreo named 'the north terrace is the heart of Hajduk,and we are the heart of the north terrace",combined with the confetti and a sign made from cards "Torca". The confetti shower from the roof of the stadium caused the beginning of the game to be prolonged for 20 minutes, till the pitch was clear.

The BBB on the south terrace then started a good fight with the police after throwing a flare on west terrace and burning few chairs without allowing the firefighters to put the fire out, making the riot squad ask for backup before the situation calmed (7 BBB were arrested in that fight and senteced to a month in prison).

In 56th minute Torcida lit up a large ammount of flares (some taken from the BBB stash hidden on the south terrace), strobos and smoke bombs, which caused the game to stop for 10 minutes before the smoke raised.

Singing was not so good on both sides, probably cause of a large numbers of "derby supporters" (tickets for this game were sold out weeks before the game, and about 10000 people waited all night before the tickets were put into shop). After the game, when Hajduk won, one of the Hajduk player lit a flare on the pitch in front of north terrace, which cost him a fine, but he said that if Hajduk won, he'll light up 10 more, and go to jail 1 year for each one if needed! Very nice reaction from here, specially now when goverments and media attack ultras for using flares (who get caught  with flare we get fine + stadium ban 1 or 2 years). After the match no incidents reported.
Hajduk won match.
