Thanks to the excellent results of its representatives in Europe, Serbia will have five clubs in European competitions next season. If Red Star and Partizan occupy the first two positions in the Serbian SuperLeague, a third-placed club will most likely play in the group stage in Europe next year. It is also necessary that one of the two mentioned clubs from Belgrade win the Serbian Cup.
In that scenario, a third-place team would start a continental adventure in the Europa League play-offs, which means that in the worst case they would play in the Conference League group stage. This is why a few clubs in Serbia invested a lot of money this summer, and among them, Vojvodina stands out the most.
They brought in Milan Rastavac as the new head coach. He had great results in Greece with Xanthi and Asteras. Also, they kept almost all important players, plus they signed Mamadou Traore, Yves Baraye, Lazar Carevic, Nemanja Nikolic, and Radomir Milosavljevic. Vojvodina’s ambition is to win the Serbian Cup or finish the season in third place, and a win at the start of the championship would mean a lot for them.
For several years, Napredak has been a stable first division team that usually finishes a season in the Serbian Superliga in the top 10. Expectations are that something like that will be the case now as well. They changed a lot of players during this summer, as well as the head coach. Dusan Djordjevic is here now and he will try to get the most out of all available players.
In the final part of last season, Napredak had terrible difficulties scoring a goal. In the last seven matches, they didn’t score a single goal, and in total, they scored 31 goals in the entire season in 37 games played. They finished in eighth place solely thanks to their good defense.
One of the biggest additions this summer is goalkeeper Nikola Petric, who was excellent in Proleter last season. In a statement before this game, coach Djordjevic said that his team will certainly need a few games to get in shape. Vojvodina will be the favorite, but they are coming to Novi Sad with a desire to return to Krusevac with at least one point in their pockets.

In the last 10 games between these two clubs, Vojvodina has won six times, Napredak three, and once there was a draw. Also, Vojvodina beat Napredak four times in a row in Novi Sad.
All players are available for both coaches.
Vojvodina vs. Napredak Prediction
Vojvodina strengthened their team a lot during the summer and has better players than Napredak. It’s expected that stadium in Novi Sad will be full and with the help of the fans, they will probably start new season in the best possible way.
