Patrik Eler is back where he feels best: the great forward leads Adria to another win and jumps to the top of the scoring charts
Would you be as successful if you were playing in the 2nd SNL? Or – say – in the Telemach First League? We’ll probably never know… But what is true is this: the 3rd SNL is a stage on which Patrik Eler finds himself like a fish in water. The footballer, who has also had a varied career abroad (he played in Austria and France), has played 46 games and scored 34 goals in the third division. Last season he scored 16 times in 20 games, this season he is already at number seven after just five games.
32-year-old Patrik Eler, who was also a target of Olimpija, shone again on Sunday, when his Adria was away to Vipava and won 3:1 in front of around 200 spectators. The former player of Austerlitz, Wacker Innsbruck, Nancy, Ried, Austerlitz Lustenau, Horn and Stripfing (he scored 106 goals in 202 games in neighbouring Austria) scored twice and was therefore the hero of Adria’s new victory. Patrik Eler beat home goalie Gašper Žellek in the 4th and 58th minute Žiga Peršič also scored for Adria and Jan Štrukelj for the visitors.
Adria jumped to the second place in the 3rd SNL West standings with another win, where Šenčur continues to lead after five consecutive victories, this time 3:1 better than Viška Svoboda away from home. Third is Dob, who beat last-placed Kočevje on Saturday
scoring nine goals. Slovan dropped to fourth place, losing away to NK Brda. Florjan Debenjak and his team enjoyed their first win of the new season.
