In the last 15 years, Javor has almost regularly participated in the Serbian SuperLeague. However, in 2021, they finished in 16th place and were relegated. It didn’t take long for them to come back again. Only 12 months later, Javor will play in the highest class of Serbian football. Last season, they finished in second place in the second division, which ensured their promotion.
The current head coach is Igor Bondzulic, legendary goalkeeper of this club. As a player, Bondzulic made more than 200 appearances for Javor, while this is the second time he is working as a head coach in Ivanjica. During the transfer period so far, veterans Damir Kahriman and Oboriah Odita left Javor, as well as captain Marko Momcilovic. Many new players arrived including Norman Campbell, Milan Obradovic, Marko Maletic, and Dino Olmagic.
The only goal for this club is to avoid relegation and become a stable SuperLeague member once again. In the first round, they couldn’t ask for a more difficult task since they will play against Partizan. Still, coach Bondzulic stated that he believes they can win points on Saturday.
Partizan played very well last season, but they failed to win trophies again. In the Serbian SuperLeague, they were in first place until 10 rounds before the end of the championship, while in the Serbian Cup, they lost in the final against Red Star. Because of that, former head coach Aleksandar Stanojevic resigned, and he was succeeded by Ilija Stolica, for whom this will be the biggest test in his career.
Board management has done a good job so far. Partizan kept all important players, while the team was upgraded by signing players such as Patrick Andrade, Fousseni Diabate, Aleksandar Filipovic, Svetozar Markovic, and Zlatan Sehovic.
Partizan always has the highest ambitions, and when it’s known that the last title was won back in 2017, the motivation is certainly big. Last season, Partizan looked very good in Europe as well. They reached the round of 16 in the Conference League where they were eliminated by Feyenoord. Before that, they defeated Sparta Prague and were in front of Anorthosis and Flora in group stage.

All players are available for Javor, while Nemanja Jovic and Fousseni Diabate won’t play for Partizan. Ljubomir Fejsa is questionable.
Javor vs. Partizan Prediction
It is completely clear that Partizan will try to look as good as possible from the first game. To win title this season, three points are necessary in practically every match. In addition, coach Stolica will make his debut on the Partizan bench and this will be a special duel for him as well.
