The Slovenian international was in the starting eleven of Fenerbahçe, which can boast 18 consecutive wins in all competitions this season. In Istanbul, the visitors scored first, but the Turks scored in the 42nd minute. In the first minute, Michy Batshuayi’s accurate shot from the right post gave them the lead and they went into the break with the lead.
Then came the 12th minute of the second half… Fenerbahçe attacked, Jayden Oosterwolde looked for his teammates in the away penalty area, but the defence stopped his intention, then… The ball bounced onto the foot of Miha Zajíc, who took the opportunity and increased his team’s lead to 2-0.

In 65. minute, the visitors from Razgrad, after the home defender beat his own keeper Rodrigo Becao. Before the end of the meeting, Miha Zajc confirmed that this was his night. Already in stoppage time, he took advantage of a pass from Sebastian Szymanski and, in textbook fashion, beat visiting goalkeeper Simon Sluga for the second time from the edge of the penalty area.
The 29-year-old Miha Zajc has missed a few games this season due to injury, but after the problems he seems to have caught the wind in his sails again, which is of course great news for Slovenian selector Matjaz Kek ahead of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Let’s add that if the Turks win the next round, they would already be guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds of this season’s conference league.
