Amir Dervišević returned to Slovenian football, but it was a miserable return: Krka lost, Beltinci and Gorica were overtaken by Primorje at the top
The eleventh round of the second Slovenian football league started on Friday with a match between Ilirija, which was the penultimate team in the league standings, and the first-placed Primorje. The home team offered great resistance throughout the first half and came back in the 28th. In the first minute, the first serious chance came when Ajdovščina goalkeeper Tony Macan had to intervene after a shot by Dejan Đermanović.
After the first half, the score remained 0:0. After the break, Primorje went for all three points and threatened in 61st minute for the first time. In the first minute, Tarik Čandić unsuccessfully attempts a ground shot. Just ten minutes later, newcomer Fahd Ndzengue found himself in a nice situation in front of Ilirija’s goal, but he shot too high. The match ended goalless and with points shared. Primorje drops to third place in the standings after the setback, while Ilirija remains at the bottom. Both teams will be back in action next week, when Ilirija will be away in Sežana at Tabor and Primorje will take on Ajdovščina in the derby of the round against Gorica.
At the same time, it was possible to watch a slightly more interesting match between Gorica and Fužinar. Highlanders chasing a return to Telemach First League, opened the game better and took the lead in 36th minute through Darko Hrka, who scored his first goal of the new season. After only eight minutes of play in the second half, the visitors from Koroška equalised when Cene Kitek successfully converted a penalty.
The victory for the team from the City of Roses was won in 65th minute, when Luka Baruca secured the goal, after his shot deflected into the net off the defence of the visiting goalkeeper Marko Deronja. Nine minutes before the end of regulation time, Brazilian Kalani Almeida made his Gorica debut. Gorica tied with Primorje in the championship standings in points, but finished 2nd on the basis of a better goal difference. The Fužinar team remains in 10th place for the time being.
The last match on Friday was between Krka and Beltinci in Novo mesto. The visitors had the better start to the match, taking the lead in 29th minute, when Luka Pihler scored to give his team the lead after the first half. After the break, Amir Dervišević officially returned to the Slovenian football scene, when he replaced Robert Perić-Komšić in the 62nd minute.
Ten minutes later, the team from Prekmurje increased their lead when Filip Kosić was accurate and set the final score. Dervišević’s return was therefore rather dismal… Beltinci climbed to the top of the standings in the second quality ranking of Slovenian club competitions with their third consecutive win, a point ahead of Gorica and Primorje. The team from Novo mesto will be in the Czech Republic by the end of 11. the rounds trembled before falling into the relegation zone…
On Saturday, the 2. SNL matches Bistrica – Tabor, Nafta – Bilje, Jadran Dekani – Brinje Grosuplje and Rudar Velenje – Triglav are on the schedule, on Sunday Dravinja and Tolmin will play each other.
