Midweek internationals performances

Ademi looks to make a passAgim Ibraimi utilized a great strike to score a goal against Chelsea in the Champions League, Mirko Ivanovski won a penalty for CFR Cluj, while Arijan Ademi and Dinamo Zagreb were once again destroyed by Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League.

UEFA Champions League, Group D, Borussia Dortmund – Galatasaray 4:1

UEFA Champions League, Group G, Maribor – Chelsea 1:1
Agim Ibraimi got the start for Maribor and played until the 90th minute when he was substituted by Damjan Bohar.  Ibraimi scored the lone goal for Maribor in the 50th minute on a stunning left footed strike from a difficult angle.  Agim was questionable for this game since he had been dealing with a bad flu over the past week, but he found the strength to make himself available and gave Maribor a solid 90 minutes (along with a goal as well).

Romania, Liga I, CFR Cluj – Brașov 1:2
Mirko Ivanovski played all 90 minutes for CFR Cluj and had an eventful game in the narrow home loss versus Brașov.  Things started well as Mirko won a penalty in the 5th minute when he was fouled inside the area (his teammate Giorgi Chanturia converted the spot kick).  However, just before halftime, Ivanovski gave away a penalty after a free kick by Brașov struck him in the arm.  He tried to jump and extended his hand which made contact with the ball, leading to the penalty.  Afterwards, he protested the decision which led to a yellow card.  Mirko’s finishing on the other end continued to let him down, especially in the 90th minute when he fired a close range shot right at the visiting keeper.
