Celje started life after Alberto Riera with flying colours, and it is thanks to the Brazilian footballer that Damir Krznar came away with a big win on his debut. Edmilson was an unsolvable puzzle for Rogaška Slatina, which remains at the bottom of the standings after another defeat Telemach First League.
The South American striker scored three goals on the road, and interestingly, Krznar’s squad won big despite being on top since 24. Nino Kouter was sent off for two yellow cards, and the game was reduced to one minute. It ended 4:0 for the leading club in the Slovenian league.
Edmilson needed just 38 minutes to score a hat-trick for the new Premier League team, scoring all three goals in the first half. He started his shooting career in 7. minute, continued in 29. minute and finished in the last minute of the first half.
The last goal of the game was scored in the 94th minute by the visitors, who were missing their injured star player Aljosa Matko (who will return next year). In the first minute, Lovro Bizjak was the most skilful in front of the goal, defended by Vice Baždarić, after a rebound.
It should be added that Damir Krznar has some worries despite the big win: not only Kouter was sent off, but also goalkeeper Matjaž Rozman got injured at the end of the first half and was replaced by Metod Jurhar.
