Koprivec started his career at FC Koper. Along with first team player Jasmin Handanović, Koprivec was transferred to Italian clubs from Koper in summer 2007. Koprivec played for Cagliari in the first round and the first leg of the second round matches of the 2007–08 Coppa Italia, both of which Cagliari won. But Cagliari used Fortin in the second leg, which they lost 4–0 to Sampdoria, and failed to advanced to the next round.
On 17 August 2009 he was loaned out to Serie B side Gallipoli. He made his debut 4 days later, in a 1–1 draw with Ascoli, ahead Carlo Sciarrone and Simone Palese, and played only eleven games with the club from Salento due to an injury that hampered his settling into the first team. He returned to Udinese at the end of the season, and was then included into the first team as second-choice goalkeeper behind fellow Slovenian Samir Handanović.
