The second round of the Pivovarna Union Cup had very few surprises. On Thursday, Brinje Grosuplje and Vipava came close to sensations, but in the end they had to concede to their higher-ranked opponents after white spot kicks. Celje has also progressed, as have four clubs from 2. SNL.
Rudar Velenje hosted Zreče and won 2:0 in front of 100 spectators. Adriano Bloudek, former Maribor hope, scored for the third time in a row who has become Rudar’s scoring trump card. The 20-year-old forward is only 23. Borna Panić was the first to beat Zreče goalkeeper Adrian Ledl in the first minute, and Borna Panić sealed the victory for the visitors nine minutes before the end.
Primorje played against Tolmin in Ajdovščina on an artificial turf pitch, where the match was postponed due to a soggy pitch on the artificial turf pitch, and “cooled down” the recently hot squad of coach Sanel Konjević. Ajdovci scored both goals in the second half: in 51. Christian Lotitto scored in the first minute , and Mark Gulić scored with 13 minutes to go.
Ilirija hosted former first league player Bela Krajina in Črnomelj, who won the 2. SNL didn’t go as planned, but they still won against the fourth-placed team. It ended 3:1 for the visitors, who scored two goals by Žiga Korošec, while Ismir Nadarević was also among the scorers. Žiga Kočevar scored the only goal for the hosts. The latter was in 88. His teammate Blaž Ilenič was sent off in the first minute and had to leave the game early for two yellow cards just half an hour before.
Nafta hosted Polana in front of 300 spectators and beat them 4:1. Mihael Rebernik scored two goals, while David Gergo and Lun Bončina also scored. Lucian Pozsgai scored the only goal for the home team.
