Rijeka city derby (Croatian: Riječki gradski derbi), is the name given to matches between HNK Rijeka and NK Orijent, the two most popular football clubs in the Adriatic city of Rijeka.

The rivalry dates back to the time when the western part of the city, Fiume, was part of the Kingdom of Italy and the eastern part of the city, Sušak, part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Between 1932 and 1940, U.S. Fiumana and NK Orijent played 10 games, with Fiumana winning 9 and Orijent 1 game.[1]

Numerous Rijeka city derbies were contested after World War II, and particularly when both clubs were competing in the Yugoslav Second League between 1969 and 1973. The last city derby took place during the 1996-97 season of Prva HNL, the only season in which Orijent played in the same tier as Rijeka since 1972/73.[2]

List of matches[edit]

The two clubs have played 14 official league games and close to 10 official cup games. In addition, they have played around 70 friendly games. Out of 14 league games, Rijeka won 11, Orijent won 1, with 2 games ending in a draw. The list below documents those games for which data can be found, which includes all league games and some cup games. The list will be updated as more data is sourced.
