After three rounds of the Serbian Superliga, Novi Pazar is the only team that still hasn’t won a single point. They have been defeated three times and it’s already being reported that head coach Vladimir Gacinovic is on hot seat. One of the potential successors could be Nenad Lalatovic, although this has been denied.
Against Javor and Vozdovac at road, Novi Pazar wasn’t a weaker opponent on the pitch. However, key problem was not taking advantages from created chances. Novi Pazar showed their best performance on home field against Cukaricki in the second round. It was 1:1 until the 88th minute, but visitors scored a goal few minutes before the end of the game and took all three points.
In the past, Novi Pazar knew how to beat Partizan. Exactly one such Partizan loss two years ago de facto cost Savo Milosevic his job. After three consecutive defeats, Novi Pazar will do everything they can to get out of the crisis. In his statement before this game, coach Gacinovic said that wounded Partizan is coming to town and his team can score points.
Although it’s only beginning of the season, Partizan is also going through a big crisis. Only five points were scored in the first three rounds. Because of this, sports director Ivica Iliev wanted to fire head coach Ilija Stolica. Club president Milorad Vucelic supported the coach, so Iliev resigned right before this match.
During this summer, Partizan strengthened the team. Players who didn’t play at the desired level were released (Lazar Markovic, Miloš Jojic, Aleksandar Miljkovic, Milan Smiljanic). Four quality players were signed instead (Patrick Andrade, Svetozar Markovic, Aleksandar Filipovic and Fousseni Diabate), but the game stagnated. Two days ago, captain Sasa Zdjelar signed for CSKA Moscow, so Partizan will soon have to find a replacement for him.
Regardless of the bad atmosphere in the club, Partizan no longer has room for failure. Red Star already has four points more and a win in Novi Pazar is imperative. Coach Stolica received the absolute support from club president and the pressure should be much less at this moment.
In total, these two clubs played against each other 17 times. Partizan won ten games, Novi Pazar two. It was tied in five occasions. Last season, Partizan won both matches. In the Serbian Superliga, they met eight times in Novi Pazar. Both Partizan and Novi Pazar won twice, and it was a draw four times.
Luka Ratkovic is injured and won’t play for Novi Pazar. All players except Nemanja Jovic are available for Partizan.
Partizan has to react after two bad results, but Novi Pazar is also looking for a way out of the crisis. We should expect an open game with a lot of goals. Partizan can hardly score four goals in this road game, and two are expected as a minimum.
