Olimpija will conclude the week with a match at Stožice. The last October challenge against Aluminij will start on Sunday at 17:30. Tickets for round 14 of Prva liga Telemach are available in pre-sale here.
The Dragons did not fare well against Klaksvik. The Green-Whites will try to forget the painful defeat as soon as possible, and the first opportunity to react to the recent European setback is the home game against Aluminij: “We have to be honest, nobody expected what happened on Thursday. There were a lot of things missing in the game and the opponent took all the dangerous chances. It was all the more disappointing. We simply weren’t good enough, so we need to pick ourselves up immediately and respond against Aluminij.” said central defender Marcel Ratnik after team’s return to Slovenia on Friday.
League clash between Olimpija and Alumini will be exactly the 30th match between the two teams. The Green-Whites have 18 wins so far: “We need to show more desire on the pitch. Against Domžale we were better as a whole. Of course, Europe is a different level, but the basics have to stay the same. An artificial turf pitch simply cannot be an excuse. We can only apologise to the fans before the season resumes. They have come far with us and they certainly did not deserve this. Sunday’s game offers a chance to at least partially change the image.”
On the impact of Thursday’s defeat on the upcoming match, Ratnik says: “Aluminij will certainly look for an opportunity in this. They will have nothing to lose in Stožice, so I expect a motivated opponent. We must not let the past get in the way. Our minds are already on the future, we have a lot of games ahead of us and we need to win now.”
