Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Aluminij v Celje match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).
Aluminij will play in this fixture following a 1-1 PrvaLiga drawn result against Tabor Sežana.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Aluminij have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Šumari have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals during that time. That aside, we must now wait to see whether that pattern might be sustained in this match.
Analysis of their past results shows that Aluminij:
- are winless against Celje in their last 7 league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 2 league matches.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Domžale in PrvaLiga action, Celje and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
For 5 of the prior 6 games featuring Celje, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game during that period works out to a meagre 2.17, with the number of goals averaged by Grofje standing at 1.
Coming into this clash, Celje remain unbeaten by Aluminij when they've played them away from home in the last 3 matches in the league.
Head to head
A glance at their prior head-to-head meetings stretching back to 26/07/2019 shows us that Aluminij have won 0 of these games & Celje 3, with the number of drawn games being 3.
In all, 8 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 0 from Šumari and 8 being from Grofje. That’s an average goals per game of 1.33.

Team News: Celje
With a completely injury-free squad to choose from, Celje manager Dušan Kosič does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game.
Our feeling is that Aluminij might need a bit of good fortune to see themselves scoring against this Celje team who we reckon should manage to score & go ahead.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 0-1 winning score for Celje at the end of the match.
Should be an interesting one.
