Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade to Draw

Although Red Star Belgrade dominated the season in the Serbian league and ended it with 35 wins and 3 draws, matches between Red Star and Partizan rarely depend on the current form. After all, Red Star Belgrade has only won once in their last five meetings, despite winning the Serbian league four years in a row. With that in mind, our prediction for this game is another draw between these two teams and the cup winner to be decided in extra time or after penalties.

Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect the game to end in a draw, we also expect the teams to be equal at half time as well. In addition to this, four of the last five h2h matches between Red Star and Partizan have been draws at half time. With the importance of the match taken into account, it’s likely that the first half will end without any goals.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last five head-to-head duels between Red Star and Partizan have gone under 2.5 total goals, with three of those matches ending with one goal or less. Since we’ve seen most of these games, we also know that even good chances are rare in the Serbian “eternal derby”. With that in mind, we expect to see a cautious, careful approach from both teams and definitely less than three goals in the end.

Red Star Belgrade vs Partizan Belgrade preview: A Red Star double or a trophy for Partizan?

The Serbian Cup final will once again pitch fierce rivals against each other. Red Star will be trying to win the double, while Partizan is trying to save the season with the cup trophy. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Red Star Belgrade

The only European champion from Eastern Europe next to Steaua Bucuresti finished the historic season with a record of 35 wins and 3 draws in 38 games in the Serbian league. Red Star Belgrade has collected 108 points, which is the new world record. They also scored 114 goals en route, which is the new Serbian record as well. Led from the bench by the legendary midfielder Dejan Stankovic, Red Star Belgrade has a chance to crown this historic season with a double, but they will have to beat their “eternal” rivals Partizan to achieve this feat. The team’s goalkeeper Milan Borjan could miss the final due to injury, although he is more likely to play.

Partizan Belgrade

The loss in the previous derby with Red Star officially ended any hopes of winning the title for Partizan Belgrade, although they would still fall way short even if they managed to get points in that game. The reason lies in the poor performance in the first half of the season, which cost their coach Savo Milosevic the job. After the return of Aleksandar Stanojevic as manager, Partizan won 24 of their last 26 league games, losing only to Red Star and to Mladost Lucani in the last game of the season. Soumah and Obradovic are questionable for this match due to injuries.
