The final act of the quarterfinals in Lendava
The final act of the quarterfinals of the cup competition takes place in Lendava, where the Olimpija fan plays against Nafta. The people of Ljubljana do not hide their goal. They want to end the season with a double crown and repeat the achievement of the 2017/18 season, when he signed with great success Igor Biscan. This season, they have already played in the cup in the second league, when the Slovenian public saw one of the most stressful performances in the autumn.
The Dragons already had 1: 3 in Brežice, Posavci’s three goals were scored by the current Celje striker Ester Sokler, then only forced to do a penalty shootout lottery and promotion to the top eight. It was also the only game this season in which the former first division king, the goal scorer, was one of Olympia’s top scorers. Ante Vukusic. The Ljubljana team will play in the second league on Wednesday.
The chosen ones Goran Stankovic, which suffered its first defeat since leading Olympija on Sunday, is organized by Nafta. Prekmurje has not given them luck this week. Mura “settled” the Greens and Whites with 3: 0 on Sunday, but the Dragons with a four-point lead over Maribor remain the first favorites to win the national title.
Mulahusejnović decided the conflict in Ptuj
Second league Ptuj to second league, where it recently occurred due to late fulfillment of financial obligations to the former coach Muamer Vugdalic he lost three points on the green table, expects a close struggle for survival and, in the cup, where he surprised Murska Sobota’s title defenders in the round of 16, he was even able to secure a place in Europe with a title sensational!
But for the team led by an old acquaintance of Slovenian greens, Makedonec Viktor Trenevski, did not turn out as desired. Koper, who despite the slightly worse results in the championship, still trusts the coach Rodolfo Vanoliju, won the locals 2-0 and scored both goals Nardin Mulahusejnovic, also the top scorer in the First League of Telekom Slovenije. So Koper stays in the European game.
Shala started a new job with a win

He wants to ensure Celje’s survival and at the same time jump on the European ticket to the cup, of which he is just two steps away from victory over Radomlje.
