In Norway, we witnessed a Slovenian clash between Bodo/Glimt, represented by Nino Žugelj, and Lugano with Žan Celar leading the attack, who, based on his recent performance in the Swiss league, deservedly so. Žugelj started the game on the bench. The encounter, filled with goals, favored the younger of these two national team representatives, and the audience witnessed a total of 7 goals (5:2)!
The hosts took the lead five minutes before the end of the first half when a pass from Brice Wembangoma was converted into a goal by the experienced Amahl Pellegrino, sending his team into halftime with a one-goal advantage. Just in the 52nd minute, the home team further extended their lead through a combination of Patrick Berg and Sondre Brunstad Fet, who successfully collaborated again fifteen minutes later, but this time they switched roles.
In the 69th minute, Žan Celar demonstrated his prowess for the third time in the last two appearances, redirecting a cross from Albian Hajdari into Julian Faye Lund’s net.
However, it took just ten minutes for Pellegrino to again find the net from close range, this time assisted by Albert Gronbæk. Shortly after, Celar left the field, making way for Boris Babić, while Žugelj finally got his chance, replacing Sondre Sørlie, and promptly received a yellow card for a foul.
It was Babić, who came in for Celar, who quickly seized the opportunity and scored in the 86th minute after a pass from Jhon Espinoza. However, the final score of the match (5:2) was set three minutes later by Oscar Kapskarmo.
With this victory, the Norwegians secured a spot in the knockout stage and will aim for the top spot in Group D in the final round against Club Brugge in Belgium, while it’s already clear that Lugano won’t be continuing in Europe.
