A product of HNK Hajduk Split youth academy, Bačelić-Grgić was promoted to the squad in July 2006, but failed to break into the first team and earn any appearances the following season. He spent the next three years on loans spells at HNK Šibenik, HNK Trogir and NK Međimurje. Upon the end of his last loan at Međimurje he was released by Hajduk in June 2009 and joined his hometown club Šibenik the following month on a free transfer. In December 2011, he terminated his contract with Šibenik through arbitration.[1][2] In January 2012, Bačelić-Grgić signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Istra 1961.[3]

Bačelić-Grgić was also capped a total of 25 times and scored 10 goals for Croatia's U-16, U-17 and U-19 teams between 2003 and 2006, and was a regular member of the squad which won fourth place at the 2005 European Under-17 Championship.[4]
