This was bound to happen too. The series of invincibility in the PLTS is finished; in the unusual match in Celje, the first major defeat in this season. The attack on the attack, without the desired conclusion, while Celje achieved two goals with two kicks in the second half.
But we will not remember the last away match in 2017 only after the first defeat in this year's championship. Marcos Tavares scored the 130th time in the Slovenian First Football League and has become equal to Štefan Škaper at the top of the shooters' hall of fame.
