Celje back on winning track: Albert Riera inflicts first defeat on Vladimir Vermezovic as Mura coach in Murska Sobota
“This is the right time to celebrate at home.” With these words, Vladimir Vermezović announced Saturday’s match between Mura and Celje
and … lost. Mura had to concede to Celje, Albert Riera inflicted the first defeat of the new coach in Murska Sobota. Interestingly, the latter are still without a win in Fazanerija this season, where they have won only one point in five matches! Celje won 2:0, with both goals coming in the second half. This was also at the expense of the home defence, which was ridiculed, especially on the second goal.
Celje, who quickly recovered from the defeat to Aluminium, got the win from Mark Zabukovnik and Yegor Prucev.
The spectators in Murska Sobota, where the first half was rather dull, saw the first goal in the 54th minute,when Aljoša Matko made a precise cross from the right wing in front of goal. He delivered the ball to the head of his teammate Marek Zabukovnik, who jumped highest and beat a helpless Klemen Mihelak.
If Mihelak was helpless on the first goal, his teammate Borna Proleta put him on thin ice on the second. A Mura defender made a bad pass in front of the goal to his goalkeeper, which was taken advantage of by Yegor Prucev. The Russian player was a hundredth of a second faster than Mihelak and the ball bounced off his foot and into the net for 2:0. Mura couldn’t recover after two goals, Celje calmly brought the game to a happy ending.
