Our prediction for this Serbia Super Liga match:
Crvena Zvezda will be aiming to cement top position in the standings when they take on Macva in their first away game of the season. The title holders kicked off the season in style, with the team rolling over both Novi Pazar and Radnicki Nis, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Dejan Stankovic is doing a good job with the Red and Whites, and his men are seen as hot favourites to win Sunday’s football game.
Aleksandar Katai, who returned to Crvena Zvezda in the summer transfer window, will be the man to keep an eye on in the away team. The good news for the league leaders is that full-back Marko Gobeljic is back to contention after recovering from coronavirus. Macva, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors, away win should be considered.
Highlighted Team (Crvena Zvezda):
Crvena Zvezda are the most famous club in Balkans. The Crveno-beli have 19 Yugoslav First League titles and have won eight domestic trophies since the breakup of Yugoslavia. Crvena Zvezda won their last league title in the 2015/2016 season, with the team finishing the campaign no less than 28 points clear of Partizan.
Speaking of Partizan, the Crno-beli are considered Crvena Zvezda’s bitterest rivals and the two teams meet in the “Eternal derby” (Veciti derbi). The capital club did well to win the European Cup title in 1991, with the team beating Olympique Marseile on penalties in the title game. That is considered the club’s biggest success, but it has to be noted that the Serbian club won the International Cup later in 1991. Crvena Zvezda outclassed Colo Colo of Chile (3-0) at National Stadium in Tokyo.
The likes of Dejan Savicevic, Vladimir Jugovic, Dragan Stojkovic, Dragoslav Sekularac, Rajko Mitic, Dusan Savic, Nemanja Vidic and Dejan Stankovic are some of the famous footballers who played for Crvena Zvezda in the past.
