Olimpija had to wait almost until the end of game in the 16. round of Telemach First League, then in 92. Timi Max Elšnik scored a goal. Green Dragons‘ 35th birthday was celebrated in the perfect way. The members of the latter will be waiting for Monday with heavy heads, as club president Adam Delius has promised them 100 litres of beer for every goal scored by Olimpija. It’s true, Olimpija could have scored more against Mura, but. 100 litres of beer isn’t just…

Olimpija took advantage of the loss of Koper to Domžale on Saturday and jumped to the second place in the Telemach First League standings before the national team break with a win over Mura. The three points were secured just before the break when, after a pass from Raul Florucz on the right wing, the slightly flustered reserve Timi Max Elšnik put his head in front of the goal and finally just shattered the Mura net. Rui Pedro increased the lead to 2:0 a few moments later, but referee Matej Jug overturned the goal for a foul.
In the last seconds of the match, Mura had a phenomenal chance to equalise, but after Denis Pintol was already beaten, one of the home team’s players successfully intervened on the goal line and ensured that the victory stayed at home.
Even before that, the action on the green was lively and exciting. Mura scored a goal that was disallowed for offside, and Mustafa Nukić’s celebration was short-lived due to offside. The visitors, among others, shook the crossbar of the home team, while Klemen Mihelak had a series of outstanding performances in the Mura jersey.
The fact is that the spectators – there were a lot of them for Ljubljana – could have seen a lot of goals, but neither the home team nor the visitors had their best day in front of the goal. Well, at least the ending was spectacular, but it will be regretted especially by the Prekmurans, who were already holding a valuable point, but in the end were left without everything.
