Alen Halilovic has won the Croatian football league, the Prva HNL, with his current club Dynamo Zagreb. On Tuesday evening, the future FC Barcelona player scored the fourth of his team’s goals in a comfortable 5-0 win over last-placed Dragovoljac, thus mathematically clinching his club’s ninth consecutive national championship, and the 16th in total since it was first contested in 1992.

Dynamo have 77 points from 32 games, and are 14 clear of second placed Rijeka with four games yet to play.

22 games, 4 goals

17-year-old Halilovic, the league's youngest ever goalscorer and also the youngest ever debutant for the Croatian national team, has played 22 league games this season, scoring four goals. Last season he made 18 appearances. Dynamo are also through to the Croatian Cup Final, where they will play Rijeka over two legs on May 7 and May 14.
