Crvena zvezda Team News
The Belgraders have been convincingly the best in Serbia for the past few seasons. Last season, they managed to win a new trophy despite the fact that they trailed Partizan until the very end of the championship.
Last year we could also see that Zvezda has a very respectable defense. In 37 games, they conceded only 19 goals, which best confirms their defensive quality.
On the other hand, they can boast that last season they were the most efficient team in the league with 95 goals scored.
In the first match of the new season, they defeated Niš Radnički easier than expected with a convincing 4:0. They controlled all segments of the game, and the opposing team was not even close to achieving a positive result.
Given that the stakes are really high this season, we don’t believe that the home team’s football players will “relax” too much.

Kolubara Team News
Kolubara played very variable last season. Often, after a series of good games, big result crises came, so the fight for survival was their maximum.
Thanks to slightly better results at the end of last season, they managed to finish in a high tenth place. However, they were troubled by their defensive game, and with 65 goals conceded, they had the worst defensive performance along with Metalac.
Watching their first game a few days ago, it could be said that they entered this season with a much more aggressive defensive game. Although they failed to triumph against Radnički from Kragujevac, they managed to leave a very positive impression.
Although they are big outsiders, we think that they will “show their teeth” against a favored opponent.
Crvena zvezda won both previous meetings with the results 3:0 and 7:1.
Injuries and suspensions
Both teams will play this match in their strongest squads.
Crvena zvezda vs. Kolubara Prediction
Regardless of the fact that Zvezda is much better, we believe that the bookies underestimated the visiting team.
The Kolubara team showed several times in the last season that they can play very disciplined and combative, and entered the new season in such a rhythm.
Crvena zvezda managed to score 4 goals against the weakened Radnički, and we believe that they will be somewhat less successful against the motivated Kolubara.
