Celje didn’t shine, but showed enough for a new three-point package: Mark Zabukovnik scored the only goal in the win over Radomlje
Celje took advantage of Olimpija’s slip-up on Saturday who got their heads kicked in
on the road at Bravo, beat Radomlje and increased their lead over the Dragons to +5. Coach Alberto Riera’s squad, which broke the string of consecutive victories in the last round in Koper, did not shine against the Millers. This was certainly not the Celje we have been used to this season. But the home crowd was still enough for the sixth win of the new season.
The spectators in the town on the Savinja saw the only goal after half an hour of play between the two teams, which were fairly evenly matched on the pitch. Celje won a corner, from which Mario Kvesić crossed in front of goal. The visitors made a bad cover on Marko Zabukovnik, which the former Radomlje player took advantage of and with a fierce header he put the ball behind the back of the helpless Luka Basa.
In the second half, Edmilson was also happy to see the ball go into the net with the help of the back of the Radomlje goalkeeper, but the Millers were lucky then. The two referees in the VAR room came in, checked the footage and the goal was overturned. The reason? Edmilson was in a prohibited position.
Both home and away teams had additional chances, Radomlje closed the gap a couple of times through Dejan Vokić, who tired Matjaž Rožman at the end of the match, but he was not beaten in this match and Celje celebrated another victory with his help.
