This season, Partizan have been playing very changeably, with many oscillations. They started the new competition year desperately. They have not won in three consecutive matches in the domestic competition, which is a rarity. In addition, they were eliminated by AEK Larnaca in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers, and the displeasure of the fans was huge.
A change of coach followed. Ilija Stolica left the club, and Gordan Petric was appointed as his successor. This change had a positive effect: the team recorded two consecutive victories in the Superliga and qualified for the group stage of the UEFA Conference League.
Before this derby, they defeated Mladost GAT 1-0 and Radnicki Kragujevac 1-0. They struggled quite a bit to score points and did not impress with their performance. If they want to achieve a positive result against Crvena Zvezda, they will have to play much, much better.
The Red and whites achieved all six victories in the championship, with an impressive goal difference of 25-2. Everything is going according to plan for the reigning champions of Serbia in the domestic competition, but the failure in Europe shook all the structures in the club.
They failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage. They were eliminated by Maccabi Haifa, and after that match, coach Dejan Stankovic decided to leave after three years of working at Crvena zvezda. Milos Milojevic, his former assistant, became the new manager.
Under the patronage of the new coach, the team played one game and beat Javor 4-1. The new coach decided to rest key players, who were exhausted after the match against Maccabi. This did not affect the final result, but it showed that Zvezda has depth and a strong roster.
Partizan and Crvena zvezda met four times last season – the current champion won twice, while it was tied twice.
Partizan (4-2-3-1): Popovic; Urosevic, Sanicanin, Vujacic, Zivkovic; Andrade, Traore; Petkovic, Natcho, Diabate; Gomes
Crvena zvezda (4-3-2-1): Borjan; Rodic, Milunovic, Dragovic, Erakovic; Sanogo, Kanga, Kangwa; Ivanic, Katai; Pesic
We believe that quality and form are currently on Zvezda’s side. The Red and whites have better and more experienced individuals, and all key players know each other well, so we are convinced that these are sufficient advantages for triumph in this match.
