Slovenia, Pokal Slovenije, Maribor - Celje 2:3
Agim Ibraimi played the opening 45 minutes for Maribor before he was substituted at the start of the 2nd half by Željko Filipović. This was the second consecutive game in which Agim was taken out at halftime due to a technical decision. Maribor was trailing 0:1 at that time, then led 2:1 around the 66th minute, before Celje scored two goals after the 88th minute to snatch the 3:2 victory. Maribor will need to overcome this deficit in the return leg of their semi-final matchup if they want to reach the final of the Slovenian Cup.
