Aluminij is in 13. Circle the Slovenian championship in Kidričevo, hosted Radomlje and suffered another defeat. The Millers won 2:0, with Madžić and Caio Da Cruz scoring. Robert Pevnik, coach of Aluminija, did not hide his disappointment after the match, mainly because of the mistakes that led to both Radomlje goals.
“Our energy just wasn’t at the right level this time,” said Robert Pevnik and continued after the eighth league defeat in the 2023/24 season: “All the other balls, all the ‘waste’, ended up at the feet of the opponent. What hurts the most is that we got goals from individual mistakes and not from elaborate actions. We need to fix that. Radomlje scored the first goal at the right moment. The same applies to the second goal. When you come out of the dressing room, you get a second goal… We tried to change something, we played with two strikers. We did everything we could. But Radomlje stood really well and we couldn’t find a way to their goal. They are to be congratulated for this.”
Aluminij will play their next match in Stožice against Olimpija. In the current season, Aluminij is playing better against teams from the top of the standings, which is also what makes Robert Pevnik so brave. “Olimpija is a quality team. But in Stožice we will be extra motivated. First we will analyse the defeat against Radomlje, then we will turn our thoughts to Olimpija. It is normal that we will not go to Ljubljana with a white flag. We will do everything we can to get a positive result there, as we have already done this season. We are looking forward to the match against Olimpija,” added 54-year-old Robert Pevnik.
Aluminij, which has won three times this season, is currently second to last in the Telemach First League standings, two points ahead of last-placed Rogaska.
