Jan Mlakar, one of the footballers who will likely represent the colors of Slovenia at Euro 2024, has finally found his scoring form upon returning to Italy. After waiting almost four months for his first goal in Pisa’s jersey, he has now scored twice in the last three league matches. He celebrated his first goal at the end of last year against Ascoli, and once again, he found the net on Saturday, shaking the goal against Lecco.
Pisa won 3-1 away, and Jan Mlakar, who played in Croatia for Hajduk Split before returning to the Italian peninsula, scored in the 85th minute, sealing his club’s victory with the final goal of the match.
The former member of Maribor started the game on the bench, but coach Alberto Aquilani sent him into the game in the 35th minute when Nicholas Bonfanti had to leave the field. Jan Mlakar and his teammates, with their sixth win of the season, jumped to 11th place in the Serie B standings, only three points behind Brescia, currently occupying the last spot for the playoffs for Serie A.
