Cup glee for Gorica

League leaders NK Gorica moved through to the Slovenian Cup semi-finals with victory away to NK Domžale.

Slovenian First League leaders NK Gorica progressed to the last four of their domestic cup competition with a dramatic 4-2 quarter-final victory at NK Domžale.

Komac conclusive
Ales Pus gave the visitors a 26th-minute lead, only for Slavisa Dvorancic to level for the home side ten minutes before half-time. Dalibor Stevanovic then put Domzale in front shortly before the hour, but Vladislav Lungu's 74th-minute equaliser sent the game into extra time where Gorica finally took charge with Andrej Komac scoring twice.

Cesar off
The top flight's second and third-placed teams met in another Slovenian Cup quarter-final, with penalties needed to separate NK Publikum and NK Olimpija Ljubljana, who played most of the match with ten men following the first-half dismissal of Slovenian international Bostjan Cesar.

Penalty prowess
Publikum could not make the breakthrough in normal time, but looked to have secured victory when Oskar Drobne finally broke Olimpija's resistance in the 100th minute. However, seven minutes later Anton Zlogar levelled to take the match to spot-kicks, where the home side held their nerve, winning through 4-2.

Repeat performance
NK Maribor, whose league victory on Sunday prompted NK Mura to dismiss coach Bojar Prašnikar and appoint Milan Miklavic, recorded a 2-0 victory against the same opponents tonight, Milan Rakic and Alen Mujanovic registering late in each half for the holders. The remaining game was an all-second division affair, with NK Nafta defeating NK Dravograd 9-2 thanks to a double hat-trick from Joze Benko.
