Recap

Flora is struggling significantly this season, having lost approximately 10 players and their coaching staff during the transfer period. This has left them a shadow of their former selves and already 15 points behind the leaders, Levadia in the Estonian league. The current 41-year-old coach Norbert Hurt is under intense criticism due to the team’s poor performance, adding pressure and a negative atmosphere around the club. Due to injuries Flora will be without important players Mihhailov (15/0) and Kalimullin (11/2).

Celje recently became champions of Slovenia for the second time in their history. Under the guidance of 51-year-old Croatian coach Damir Krznar, who took over in October, they reached the top of the standings. Celje is in a preparation period for the upcoming domestic season, which begins on July 21. They have played five friendlies with mixed results: Borac Banja Luka (2-2), Otelul (2-3 defeat), Hunedoara (2-0 win), Rapid Bucharest (1-0 win), and Cukaricki (0-1 defeat). While three players (Prutsev, Menalo, and Adetunji) have left, six new players have joined, with four expected to be in the squad for this match. Due to injuries Bajde (24/6), Milić (22/0), Ajhmajer (19/0), Vrbanec (18/0), and Obradovič (9/0) are unavailable.

Flora’s massive player and staff turnover, combined with their significant points gap in the domestic league, indicates a team in turmoil. The injuries to key players Mihhailov and Kalimullin further compound their issues. Celje’s quality and stability make them strong favorites to progress in the next round.
