It’s time to get back to the fight for the championship of Slovenia. FutureNet Maribor will play the first match in 2019, and its rival will be KMN Bronx Skofije.
The nearest rival of FutureNet Maribor is currently the strongest team from those who are outside the podium. KMN Bronx Skofije ranks 4th, has 15 points and is characterized by an equal form throughout the season. In 11 games, KMN recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats. So, this is not a rival who can be ignored.
But on the other hand, KMN Bronx Skofije has a weak point: defense. The team from Skofije lost 40 goals, which is the 3rd worst result in the league. Interestingly, only the last two teams in the table have worse results so it’s kind of surprising that the team struggling significantly in its defensive performance has been able to go so high in the league’s table.
However, KMN Bronx Skofije can play greatly in the attack (so far 40 goals scored), thanks to which it can get out of the trouble in which falls through the weaker defence.
The team from Skofije has the best scorer of the futsal Extraleague in Slovenia. It’s Nik Zajc who has already scored 25 goals – 3 more than Matej Fidersek, captain of FutureNet Maribor. Every team would like to have Nik Zajc in its squad, and when you play against him you have to reckon with the fact that this player can cause a lot of trouble. But after all, FutureNet Maribor can be considered as favourite of this game. On the other hand, the team from Marib0r is the leader of the league with 31 points and second placed Dobovec Pivovarna Kozel has 30 points. That’s why our team must win to stay on the first place.
KMN Bronx Skofije – FutureNet Maribor, Friday, January 11, 8 p.m.
