Koper win second Slovenian Super Cup

Matej Palčič scored the shoot-out winner as FC Koper, fresh from a UEFA Europa League victory in Iceland, beat NK Maribor in the Slovenian Super Cup.

UEFA Europa League first qualifying round contenders FC Koper collected the first silverware of the campaign in Slovenia by defeating champions NK Maribor 3-2 on penalties.

Playing on home turf, Rodolfo Vanoli's side held their nerve in the shoot-out after a goalless 120 minutes. Matej Palčič scored the decisive spot kick, sealing the south west club's second triumph in the annual season curtain-raiser – to win their first, in 2010, they also prevailed on penalties against Maribor.

Cup winners last term, Koper had only returned from Iceland, where they beat Víkingur Reykjavík 1-0 in the first instalment of their UEFA Europa League first qualifying round tie, on Saturday. The second leg takes place on Thursday.
