FutureNet Maribor with a chance to strengthen its leadership

There's no strong enough competitor for FutureNet Maribor in the futsal Extraleague in Slovenia. But that doesn't mean that our team can get some rest. On the contrary - rivals in the table are close, so FutureNet Maribor has to beat KMN Benedikt in the upcoming home game. The team from Maribor which FutureNet supports is the only undefeated team in the league. In 9 games, it won 8 times and drew once and that gives a balance of 25 points and first place in the table. But that doesn't mean that FutureNet Maribor can slow down its march through the season a bit. Pivovarna Dobovec Kozel, which takes 2nd place, loses only point to the leader. This is how the league settled, that currently two teams - FutureNet Maribor and Pivovarna - are fighting head to head. The loss of other teams to the first place is getting bigger. And Pivovarna Dobovec is a dangerous team, with many well known and skilled players in the line-up. That is why this team will be able to take advangate of every FutureNet Maribor slip.

For FutureNet Maribor, a match against this rival will be an opportunity to strengthen the lead in the league. Any other result than the home win will be a huge surprise.

Winning against the odds. FutureNet Maribor - Siliko Mkeršmanc 5:4

Becoming a leader is not an easy task. But remaining on that position is even harder. Especially when you are surrounded by rival teams that want to dethrone you. Players from FutureNet Maribor know this, and that’s why they work really hard to remain on top. However, their last game against Siliko Mkeršmanc was not an easy task. Actually, they were a few steps away from losing and giving away their leading position to another team in the table (such as Dobovec Pivovarna Kozel or FC Litija). It started alright - Maribor’s striker, Uros Kroflič, scored the first goal in the 3rd minute of the match. But it all went downhill from there.  Opponents then scored 3 goals in a row! One in the 8th minute and two in the 11th minute! Players from Siliko Mkeršmanc not only scored but also successfully defended their half of the field. Strategists from Maribor were in a truly tough spot. They desperately tried to break the opponent’s defense and dangerous counter-attacks. The first half ended with a 2:3 score.  But finally - the second half began painting a wholly different picture for our team. They managed to score 3 goals of their own! In 29th, 30th and 32nd minute of the match! The players from Siliko Mkeršmanc refused to give up and scored again in the 34th minute. The final score was 5:4. FutureNet Maribor left the field victorious.

The defeat could knock down our far away from the leader’s chair. Fortunately, our team showed the character of the champions. In Litija, FutureNet Maribor took the lead after 9 minutes of play when Teo Turk scored. The guests answered after a few seconds, but this blow also didn’t break our team. In the 15th minute the result was raised by Stojković, and in the 24th minute, Rednak scored the goal and set the result for 3:1 for FutureNet Maribor. Six minutes before the end of the match, the hosts raised the bar and it got a little bit nervous for our team because FC Litija was losing only 2:3 after Deković’s goal.

Thanks to this victory, FutureNet Maribor has 22 points and still leads in the futsal Extraleague in Slovenia.
