In the category of up to 63 kg, Croatia’s Ivan Lizatović will compete for bronze, against the winner of the fight Celiček (CRO) – Juan (ESP). On Saturday, Lizatović registered two victories and one defeat. He took his first victory without a fight – the Hungarian KECSKEMÉTI surrendered due to injury. The second fight was won by ARNAUTA (ROM), and later in the semifinal fight, he lost to the representative of Turkey YILDIRIM.

In the category of up to 87 kg, Croatia’s Filip Smetko and Kristian Lukač have the opportunity to reach bronze through the replay. In the same category, Croatian Olympian Ivan Huklek was unlucky.
