It was also very hot in Ljubljana, where Ilirija and Krka played. Five goals were scored in front of around 100 spectators, including one by returnee Amir Dervišević. But even that was not enough for the Novometians, who are in a serious crisis this season. Ilirija celebrated a 3:2 victory after Ismir Nadarevic scored twice and Patrik Jug once.
