Although it’s only November, football in Slovenia is slowly saying goodbye for the year in many age categories. This is also the case in the U15 and U17 leagues, where the two rivals from Styria were at it on Sunday. Maribor hosted Celje and avenged its recent defeat in the Telemach First League with two wins.
In the U-17 league, it ended 2-1 to Maribor in front of 80 spectators, although it was Celje who took the lead. In 28. minute Alban Veselaj confirmed his good scoring form with his 12th goal of the season in the first minute, but the young Maribor players were not put off by the deficit.
In 45th minute Jaka Premrl scored for the home team to level the match. Marko Blaž Simonović also scored in the 72nd minute. In the u17 league, Olimpija and Celje lead with 33 points each, but Bravo and Maribor, who still have a game to play, have two points less. It is therefore not yet known who will finish the winter at the top of the U17 league.
There is no doubt among the older boys who will be the first to go in 2024. Maribor defeated Celje 2:0 and recorded its 14th consecutive (!) victory. Jaka Verdonik and Luka Zidarič scored for the young vijolični, who are a game down and six points ahead of Domžale. Celje is 9th place in the U15 league.
