Eight goals against a Croatian second-league team and half as many goals against the fifth club of the first Hungarian league – to say the least, Olimpija is in good form at the beginning of 2024. The Dragons played their first friendly match on Turkish soil on Monday and toyed with a club that has won its national championship seven times. The coach of the Ljubljana-based club, Zoran Zeljković, was understandably satisfied after the victory.
“We played fairly well throughout the match and deservedly won. There’s always room for improvement, but we executed most of the things we practiced quite well. What pleases me the most is that we once again didn’t concede a goal. We don’t stop. That’s our philosophy, and that’s the direction we want to go,” said Zoran Zeljković after the match with the Hungarians.
Goals for Olimpija were scored by Diogo Pinto, Admir Bristrić, Raul Florucz, and Nemanja Motika. The Dragons will be in action again on Wednesday, facing last year’s European rival on the road to the Champions League – Bulgarian giants Ludogorets. Before returning home, Zoran Zeljković will lead his team against Novi Pazar and Baník from Ostrava.
