Meanwhile, Maribor are quite a famous club in Europe which constantly appears in the Eurocups, however, its performance there cannot be named rather successful. In the previous season “Vijolice” occupied only the second place in the Slovenian Prva Liga table with 80 points collected after 36 clashes played. The side showed astonishing effectiveness in attack, being a real nightmare for its opponents with 76 scored goals while its defense was also doing great with 28 goals conceded. In the latest away battles Maribor have thrashed Celje 4:0, beat Krsko 2:1 and got 1:1 draw against Domzale.
Partizani have never met with Maribor before. At this moment it is quite difficult to give an advantage to any of the teams, nevertheless, “Vijolice” look a bit stronger and is likely to celebrate a victory in the forthcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Maribor to win.
