Olimpija won in the second round of the Union Cup. On a difficult pitch, completely soaked and muddy, the Green-Whites won in Grosuplje after penalties. Pedro Lucas, Mateo Karamatić, Mustafa Nukić and Saar Fadida were all accurate. In the 4th round Denis Pintol made a big save.
Head coach Zoran Zeljković after the win over NK Brinje Grosuplje: “We got what we wanted. We got through and that’s the most important thing. Congratulations to the boys for fighting in impossible playing conditions. We adapted to the conditions and I am proud of them.”
On the difficult playing conditions: ‘Itwas practically impossible to play. The ball was more in the air than on the ground because of the completely destroyed surface, but I always say that in life you have to adapt. The boys did. We have to forget the match as soon as possible and move on. Our thoughts are now on the championship.”
The Dragons will be away in Celje on Sunday afternoon: “Some of the players have been rested today, some of them have some problems with injury. The game in Celje is still a few days away, so we will see who will be optimal. I believe we have enough width to play a good game against Celje.”
