Žan Celar‘s recent injury seems to have definitively sparked him, as the Slovenian international has found the net in three out of the last five appearances, averaging a goal every 74 minutes on the field. This trend continued in the match between Lugano and Winterthur in the Swiss Super League. Žan Celar began the said game on the substitute bench.
The home team took the lead for the first time just five minutes before the end of the first half when Renato Steffen scored after an assist from Shkelqim Vladi, securing an advantage for his team at halftime. Celar’s performance intertwined with these players as he entered the game in the 64th minute, replacing Vladi, and then scored, capitalizing on Steffen’s assist, less than twenty minutes later to extend the lead.
The visiting team managed an honorable goal, against whom Žan Celar celebrated his ninth goal of the 2023/24 season, scored by Samuel Ballet in added time.
Lugano faces a midweek clash against Turkish side Beşiktaş in the conference league, although both teams are already out of contention for the knockout stages.
