Victory in the shadow of an injury to the best player: Celje brought Bravo to his knees, but will almost certainly be without Matko for a while
The first match of the 12th round of the Slovenian national championship was played in the city of Knez Celje and Bravo clashed. The Ljubljana team has made the leading team of Telemach First League quite tired, but returned home empty-handed. Celjani thus achieved another victory, which was overshadowed by the injury of Aljoša Matko. The winger, who has been very lively this season, hit the Bravo net in the first minute and finished the game in pain. According to the first information, he injured his foot and it is possible that Celje will have to play a few games without his help. Anyway, it ended 2:1, with Luka Bobičanec scoring for Celje and Jakoslav Stanković for the visitors.
Celje took the lead after just 35 seconds of play. Brave goalkeeper Matija Orbanić managed to parry the first shot after a quick action down the left side, but unluckily the ball bounced straight to the feet of Aljos Matko. The latter ran in from the “second plan” and put the ball in the 35. kicked routinely into the Ljubljana net.
Bravo equalised before the end of the first half, when Jakoslav Stanković, after a nice solo move, walked through the Celje defence and finally scored with a beautifully timed shot, which Matjaž Rozman had no chance.
The winner was decided after just a few minutes of the second half. V 49. In the first minute, Lan Štravs dragged Aljosa Matko by his jersey in the penalty area, who fell to the ground, but the referee deemed that this was enough for a harsh penalty. Luka Bobičanec struck the ball from the white spot, beat Orbanić and scored a goal, which was enough for three more points.
By the end of the game, both could have scored. Celjani had a bit more of the game, but Bravo was also dangerous on a few occasions. The result did not change, Celje celebrated another victory.
