The first league players are back at it again during the week, this time in the Pivovarna Union Cup. Domžale, who are in a major crisis in the championship, were supposed to be away at nearby Dob, but due to bad weather they had to change their schedule. Dob actually hosted the match in Domžale, where it was played on an artificial turf pitch. Nevertheless, the third league match was a big challenge for the yellow family, who celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory.
The match, which was anything but easy for the away team, was scoreless in the first half and the teams went into the break 0-0. Dusan Kosič’s men finally got a breather in 72. Danijel Šturm took advantage of the home goalkeeper’s inattentiveness to score the winning goal for his team.
Before the end of the match, a heavy downpour made the game even more difficult for both teams, and in the dying moments of the match, the hosts received a red card after a rough foul in the middle of the pitch and a scuffle between players. Žiga Vrhovnik is excluded.
Maribor progressed much easier, as they were significantly better than NK Jurovski Dol in front of 3,500 spectators in Ljudski vrt. Find out more about how it ended in the Štajerska capital can be found here.
