Since the beginning of the match we fulfilled the words of Martin Sevela who said before the match that his team wouldn’t leave something to chance. From the first minute the ball possession was on our side and we managed to push the opponent team in front of his penalty box. The first chance came in 8th minute when Kalu crossed the ball on Janga but he was found in complicated position to shoot on goal properly. Three minutes later we finally took the lead. After a corner kick Rabiu hit the crossbar then Kalu hit the post but the ball was still in our possession and after Holubek’s pass Janga scored from close range. In next minutes we were still dominating the match. In 19th minute Bero threatened but Seliga was able to parry the ball to the corner kick. From this corner kick the ball found its way to Kalu who dribbled past two players and passed the ball to Bero who didn’t hesitate and smashed in our second goal in the match. In 30th minute we could lead by three goals but Rabiu in the decisive moment slipped and missed the ball in promising chance. The end of the first half was very similar to the one in Ljubljana. We lost the concentration again and opponent team managed to tie the game within four minutes by Kelhar in 42nd minute and by Eleke already in stoppage time.

The second half was played primarily in the central area of the pitch as both team focused mainly on avoiding mistakes. In 60th minute we had an advantage of a corner kick after which goalkeeper Seliga dropped the ball inside the goal area but Bula couldn’t find the net. In 65th minute the away coach Vanoli sent on the pitch the third striker Wobay. From this moment Ljubljana started to take control of the match. The defensive play of our team was very good until the 79th minute when Klinar used the misunderstanding between our goalkeeper Semrinec and our defence to score a third goal for his team (2:3). The rest of the match was played in very nervous atmosphere but thanks to the Semrinec’s great save in the stoppage time no goal was scored.
