What a few days for a Slovenian in Norway! Nino Žugelj was recalled to the Slovenian national team, who is on the verge of qualifying for Euro 2024, and on Sunday his goodwill level was boosted even further. Bodo/Glimt, the club he joined last summer from Maribor, in Norway two rounds before the end of the season, dispelled all doubts about the championship title.
Bodo/Glimt has a nine-point lead over Brann with 180 minutes left, which means that Nino Žugelj and his teammates have done their job. The last two games of the season will be a celebration of what has been achieved on Norwegian football pitches.
Nino Žugelj started Sunday’s match against Aalesund in the starting eleven for the home team, who eventually won 1-0 after scoring the only goal in the 37th minute. Nikolai Hopland scored for the away team in the first minute, hitting his own net. The 23-year-old Slovenian footballer, who has played 11 games and scored one goal in the Norwegian league this season (his stats would undoubtedly have been much better if he hadn’t had a few injury problems), stayed on the pitch until the age of 74. One minute.
After five games without a win, Viking, who had been in the title race for a long time, finally triumphed. The Stavanger club beat Sarpsborg 2-1 at home, with Jošt Urbančič sitting on the reserves bench from start to finish. Meanwhile, David Breckal was absent from the Viking squad, having undergone surgery this week, which also left him without a call-up to the Slovenian national team.
