Tirol, which hasn’t been going according to plan this season, managed to celebrate a victory today thanks to the Slovenian winger-forward. Nik Prelec, a former member of Sampdoria and Ljubljana’s Olimpija, contributed the winning goal for Tirol in an away match against Blau-Weiß Linz, helping break a streak of two consecutive losses. Despite today’s win, Tirol still occupies the second-to-last position in the Austrian league table but has slightly closed the gap to its competitors with these new three points.
For Prelec, this was already his sixth goal this season, accompanied by two assists for his teammates. Nik Prelec, a former Slovenian youth international, currently plies his trade at Tirol as a loanee from the Italian club Cagliari, which he joined from Tirol for a hefty sum of €1.3 million.
For Tirol, where Sandi Ogrinec played in the first half, and for Prelec – the latter earning a rating of 8.3 on SofaScore, being the standout performer in the match – this was also the final game of the year. It’s evident already that they face a lot of work during the winter break. Occupying second-to-last place in the Austrian elite league isn’t a situation that ensures tranquility among the club’s leadership and fans.
