Cukaricki vs. Spartak Subotica Prediction, Tips and Odds – Aug. 7, 2022, 21:00 CET
Sunday evening brings us an interesting duel of the fifth round of the Serbian Superliga. Cukaricki will welcome Spartak from Subotica to its stadium, and this match starts at 9:00 p.m.
The home team’s good form was interrupted by Twente in the first match of the third round of qualifiers for the Conference League, defeating them 3-1. Dusan Kerkez’s squad will have to be reorganized as soon as possible and they have to redirect their thoughts to the duel with a very unpleasant team from Subotica.

The team from Banovo Brdo was in excellent shape before the duel against the Dutch. They achieved a five-match winning streak and did not concede a goal for almost 350 minutes, but those previous opponents were significantly weaker than Twente.
Cukaricki eliminated Racing Luxembourg in the previous qualifying round for the Conference League and won both matches 4-1 and 4-0.
In the domestic championship, they defeated Novi Pazar 2-1, Napredak 1-0, and Mladost GAT 2-0, so they were very motivated ahead of the meeting with Twente, but the difference in quality between these two teams is currently too big.
However, the quality of this team is above average for the Superliga level and they are one of the main candidates for participation in one of the European competitions next season as well. They are currently in third place with nine points and have conceded only one goal in the last three rounds.
On the other hand, Spartak is one of the four teams that did not lose in the first four rounds. They recorded two wins and two draws, and they are currently in fifth position in the table. Spartak’s footballers won eight points, the same number as TSC, which is in fourth place.
The players of Slavko Petrovic are very disciplined and responsible in defense and these are the main features of the team in the new season. This statement is best illustrated by the fact that in the first four rounds they did not concede a single goal from open play. They conceded the only goal in the first round against Mladost Lucani, and it was from a penalty.
In the last round, they achieved a convincing victory against Vozdovac at their stadium 3-0, so the Spartak players travel to the capital of Serbia for this clash with a lot of confidence.
Cukaricki defeated Spartak in both matches last season, and the result was identical: 2-1.
Cukaricki (4-2-3-1): Micovic; Stevanovic, Drezgic, Vujadinovic, Roganovic; Mijailovic, Docic; Ivanovic, Kovac, Ndiaye; Badamosi
Spartak Subotica (4-3-3): Manojlovic; Simura, Filipovic, Ostojic, Mitrovic; Tumbasevic, Scepanovic, Todoroski; Bjelovic, Obradovic, Sreckovic
We expect a difficult and inefficient match. The home players will not have enough time for full regeneration from the duel with Twente, so we expect their energy to be at a lower level. On the other hand, Spartak is well organized in the defensive line, so we believe that there will not be many goals.
