Aleš Arnol with Ljubljana Braves has surprisingly good results: ‘Congratulations to the boys, we have a really young team’
Bravo hosted the Domžale and beat them 3:2. Benjamin Markuš put the visitors in front in the first minute, but Jakoslav Stanković and Martin Pečar brought Bravo back from behind before the end of the half. Domžale were brought back into the game just before the break by Jošt Pišek in 43rd minute, and Lan Štravs scored in the 51st minute of the second half to give Bravo the win. Aleš Arnol, Bravo coach, after winning the battle with Dušan Kosić, is expectedly not hiding his satisfaction.
“It’s a really tough game. In the end, we could tell that the boys were getting tired, because the rhythm has been really high and demanding in the last period. The key was not to lose our heads after the opening goal, which we scored too late. We continued with our game. Domžale gave us a good challenge. They set up very low, waited for us to make mistakes and tried to threaten our goal with two fast strikers. The plan was good and right. We said before the game that the key would be to get higher up the pitch. It was also important that we controlled both their attackers. I am particularly pleased that we simplified the plan in the second half. We were quicker to the strikers, with more direct balls towards the opponent’s goal. Congratulations to the boys, especially because they are a really young team,“, Aleš Arnol was satisfied after the fifth win of the season, which jumped Bravo to the third place in the Telemach First League standings.
Aleš Arnol: “Pečar should have got the ball on the ground”
One of the heroes of the win over Domžale was Martin Pečar, who scored a really great goal. “He reacted perfectly, he reacted perfectly. The ball should have come to him on the ground, but it didn’t. But Martin didn’t get confused, he reacted perfectly. He hit the ball fantastically well and I can only congratulate him. But also to the team that made sure Martin was alone and in a good position to shoot,” said the Ljubljana coach.
In the next round, Bravo will host Celje, which is still the leading team in the championship. In addition, Bravo will play a cup match during the week. The draw has awarded them Radomlje, which means another tough match. “On Wednesday, we have a cup match. The draw favoured Radomlje, so we are not lucky to have a week to prepare for Celje in peace. But the fact is that we cannot look for a favourite in the match with Celje. As we said before the Olimpija: we want to leave everything behind. We focus on what is next in front of us. It will be very difficult, even in the middle of the… The width of our squad is what it is, but I still believe we will be a big challenge for Celje. And that we can be successful in Celje too,” hopes Aleš Arnol.
