Velenje Rudar play two games in less than 48 hours in Eon NextGen: First a win, now a draw, both times the same hero
Joao Henriques, coach of Olimpija, speaks out after the defeat to Bravo.
He is upset that his team had to play two games in less than 72 hours. But what could the juniors of the Velenje club have to say… Rudar
had to play two games in less than 48 hours! On Thursday evening they played NK Brinje Grosuplje at home, and on Saturday afternoon they had to go on the road to Bonifika. But despite the hard pace, Rudar can be satisfied. How pleased I am. The Dolenjska team went down 2:1, but the Velenje team also took the whole skin off in Koper.
The Eon NextGen Youth League match on the Coast ended 1:1. In front of 250 spectators, the home team took the lead in the 17th minute. Jakob Pečjak scored in the first minute. Rudar got the point in 72nd minute, when Elmir Avdić converted a penalty into a goal. Interestingly, the latter was also the hero against NK Brinje Grosuplje, scoring from the white spot. The difference is that he scored for the win then, and for the draw this time. Elmir Avdić has already scored five goals this season and is the third top scorer in the championship.
Igor Božić, coach of Koper, started the match with the line-up of Štrasberger, J. Pečjak, G. Pečjak, Šavor, Slak, Krasniqi, Hrvatin, Sosič, Šarlah, Gustini, Rizvić, Milošević, Fonda, Žabkar, Žavbi and Tunanović also played. Brecl Ojsteršek, Štitić, Šehović, Nahtigal, Kadrić, Abbas, Galić Bosnić, Majhen, Avdić, Cugmas, Mijošek, Sulejmanović and Marsel also played for Rudar.
Koper returned to second place in the Eon NextGen league standings with the draw, but it is worth adding that it has a game more than Maribor (the latter on Saturday scored seven goals against Nafta ), which is one point behind. Rudar is 11th after accumulating 10 points in eight games.
