Mačva Šabac vs Red Star Prediction, Tips & Odds – Sep. 29, 2022 16:00 CET
The new season in the Serbian Cup begins! The current champions of Serbia Red Star will start the defense of the trophy in the round of 16. First match will be against Mačva from Šabač.
Mačva is a team that competes in the First League of Serbia. They are in 7th place in the table with 12 points won from 10 games played. Mačva have 3 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws. Mačva is a quality team that should occupy the middle of the table, so the results so far are expected.
They are currently in a bad form as they have won only one game out of the previous 5. In the last round they played at home against IMT with a score 0-0. IMT is the leading team in the table. Mačva’s biggest problem in the current part of the season is the weak attacking line, which is why they scored only 10 goals and conceded 14.
Red Star wants to confirm its long-standing dominance in Serbian football this season as well. In the previous two years, they won two National Titles and two National Cups.
Red Star may win the 27th National Cup trophy as well. This time they will start with a match against the Mačva, which they met twice in this competition. In the last match in 2019 Red Star won with a minimal score1:0. The only goal was scored by Boakye in the 66th minute.
The first match in the Cup was playing with a score 0:0 until the 90th minute. After the penalty Mačva managed to create a sensation and advance to the semi-finals.
Coach Miloš Milojević will not have the complete squad on Thursday due to the national team’s matches. Stefan Mitrović, Strahinja Eraković, Kings Kangva, Osman Bukari, Irakli Azarov, El Fardou Ben, Guelor Kanga and Milan Borjan will not be in the team, but even without them, Red Star is the absolute favorite in this match.
In the 10 matches played so far between these two rivals, Red Star was better 9 times, Mačva won only once, in the quarter-finals of the Cup in 2018.

Mačva Šabac vs. Red Star Prediction
Date and time: Sep.29.2022. 16:00 CET
Pick: Total goals under 4.5
Red Star opened the season very effectively. But after being eliminated by Maccabi from the play-offs of the group stage of the Champions League, Red Star have a problem in the implementation of the attack. In the previous 6 matches, Red Star scored an average of one goal per match. And if we look at the history of matches against Mačva, all matches ended with less than 4.5 goals per game.
Red Star is much better rival in this match. Even after not so good results in the previous month, we expect Red Star to win.
Our suggestion for this match is that the total number of goals in the match will be under 4.5, and the 22bet bookmaker offers us an excellent rate of 2.05 for that tip.
