After two consecutive losses in the conference league against Lille and Slovan Bratislava, Olimpija will try to get its first win on Thursday, when it faces the longest road trip in the group. The Zmaji will travel to the Faroe Islands, 3,000 kilometres away, where they will face a tough opponent Klaksvik.
The match at the Torsvollur Stadium in Torshavn, which seats 6,500 spectators, will kick off at 18.45, and if Olimpija were to be left empty-handed again, they would be in an almost losing position.
That is why it is anything but encouraging news that the new coach Zoran Zeljković is not without staffing concerns. As the expert, who succeeded Joao Henriques on the Dragons’ hot bench, revealed after the league win over Domžale, captain Timi Max Elšnik and the combative Argentine midfielder Agustin Doffo are also questionable for the away game.
“I hope with all my heart that they will make it, but so far it doesn’t look good. I hope this will change before the game,” said Zoran Zeljković after the victory at the Kamnik Bistrica stadium.
