Maribor he struggled and even got tired, but in the end he still won. Rogaška sold their skin dearly in Ljudski vrt and were on the verge of a big point, but the victory stayed at home. Maribor only got the second goal in stoppage time, when reserve Erico Castro scored. It ended 2:1 for Maribor.
It didn’t take long for Rogaska to take the lead. Home goalkeeper Ažbe Jug scores in the 5th. In the first minute, Oliver Kregar did stop two dangerous shots on his own goal, but in the third minute, he just found a way to kick the ball behind the home goalkeeper’s back. Maribor was the better opponent in the next 85 minutes.
The hosts, who returned to Ljudski vrt after three weeks, equalised after less than half an hour. Then Marko Bozic did most of the work, making some great plays on the left side of the Rogazka defence. After his timely pass in front of the goal, Jan Repas was the best man there, sending the ball behind the back of the visiting goalkeeper Rok Vodisek.
Vodisek, a member of Olimpija in his time, had a lot of work to do in the second half, including defending two dangerous free kicks by Josip Iličić, who started the game after a long time and played almost until the end. But even though Rok Vodišek was really in the mood to play, he couldn’t prevent the goal that gave Maribor the win.
V 91. On the first minute, Itsukiya Urata crossed from the left wing, and after a shot by Hillal Soudani, Vodisek managed to stop the home team’s celebration, but Erico Castro was the first to reach the rebound, causing an explosion of excitement among the home fans.
