After two consecutive draws with Koper and Olimpija, which was certainly a respectable success given the state of the standings, the Radomlje achieved what they wanted against a more comparable club. Oliver Bogatinov led his side to victory over Aluminium on Sunday, and after the game, which saw the goals of Magid Shošić and Caio Da Cruz, he was expectedly not hiding his satisfaction.
“The fact is that we made good use of the national break,” said Oliver Bogatinov at the start of the game and continued after the match in Kidričevo: “The pause was good for us to focus on our game and to be successful in doing so. We beat a rival that has a very good team, especially in transition and counter-attacks. In this respect, we have made it impossible for Aluminij to do so, through controlled possession. I would say we were very good, even excellent, in the opening 20 minutes. But of course, the game can break quickly. A lot can change in the dressing room, but we caught the right moment and quickly capitalised on the home team’s mistake. Our 2:0 lead was well deserved, and we calmly took the game to the end.”
Radomlje jumped to 7th place in the standings with the win in Telemach First League.Mlinarji are now facing a series of matches in which they could increase their points tally: the opponents will be Mura, Bravo, Rogaska and Domžale.
“The results will tell how much we are worth. Before the game against Aluminium, we played against Maribor, Celje, Koper and Olimpija and left a positive impression. Now we are mainly facing teams from the bottom half of the standings, against whom we will have to win points. That is why this victory means a lot to us. It will also allow us to continue the season a little calmer. We have a real test before the new national team break, which will give us the answers to where we can go this season,” said Oliver Bogatinov after the victory over Robert Pevnik’ s troops.
