Aluminij will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 1-0 PrvaLiga success vs Domžale.
Aluminij have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their sum of goals equals just 2 versus opposing sides during their previous 6 fixtures. In those games, Šumari have also seen the number of goals against them come to 3. Let’s find out whether or not that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Coming into this clash, Aluminij have not registered a win against Maribor in their last 15 league games. What a terrible run without a win that has been.
Previously, Maribor drew 0-0 in the PrvaLiga match with Mura.
Throughout their six latest matches, Darko Milanič's Maribor have slotted home 10 times thus yielding them the goals scored per game average of 1.67.
Looking at their past form shows that Maribor:
- have not been beaten by Aluminij when they have played them away from home in the previous 7 league games. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
- are unbeaten in their previous 5 league matches away from home.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league games.
Head to head

A combined total of 21 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 4 of them for Šumari and 17 netted by Vijoličasti. That is an average goals per game value of 3.5.

Team News: Maribor
Thanks to a largely available group, there is only a single fitness problem for the Maribor gaffer Darko Milanič to be concerned with. Nemanja Mitrovic (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Maribor will probably create a good amount of chances and successful shots on target.
In contrast, Aluminij might well find it difficult to find success in front of goal but we do see them pulling one back during this clash, too.
