Koper will do battle with visiting side Celje at Stadion Bonifika in this PrvaLiga match on Sunday.
Our Koper v Celje predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (including the best match odds).
Koper will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-2 PrvaLiga success versus Domžale.
For Koper, the goalscorers were Maks Barišič (4') and Matej Palčič (62').
Koper have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, finding the back of the net every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They have totted up the amount of 10 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 7. Such a trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this game, however.
Celje will go into this clash after a 2-0 PrvaLiga win with the downing of Maribor in their most recent fixture.
For Celje, goals were scored by Žan Karničnik (12') and Aljoša Matko (92').
Celje have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, having scored 14 goals in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Celje have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 5 of those same games.
Head to head
A look at their past head-to-head clashes going back to 12/02/2022 tells us that Koper have won 2 of these & Celje 3, with the number of drawn results being 1.

In that match, Celje had 53% possession and 9 shots at goal with 6 on target. The goalscorers were Aljoša Matko (15') and Denis Popovič (69').
Koper got 15 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target.
Team News: Koper
The Koper boss Zoran Zeljkovič has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Celje
From a largely available squad, there is only a single fitness issue for the Celje manager Roman Pylypchuk to be concerned about. Denis Popovic (Surgery) misses out for this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Koper could find themselves up against it to breach the defence of this Celje side who we think might score at least once to put them ahead.
That’s why we have predicted a narrow 0-1 advantage for Celje after 90 minutes.
A close call.
