This game is a must watch for every basketball fan. The Serbian rivals are all hyped up for their EuroLeague matchup.
Prediction 1: Partizan to win @ 3/5 (1.60)
Partizan was so close to winning against Olympiacos last week, but Zeljko Obradovic’s team failed in the last moments of the game. Crvena Zvezda is in an even worse situation with a coaching change this early in the season. This is the most important game for both teams and it will be a high intense game. Partizan has a slightly better roster and given the fact that this is technically their home game, the majority of the fans at the packed Stark Arena will be theirs. Looking back at their previous head to head games, the home team won the last six, so that tradition will continue on Thursday.
Prediction 2: Kevin Punter over 13.5 points @ 17/20 (1.85)
Kevin Punter is the best player on the Partizan roster but the American has a difficult start of the season. He has made only one three pointer in the first four EuroLeague games this season and committed a crucial turnover last week in the loss to Olympiacos. Punter is among the top 10 highest-paid players in the league and he will have to show his worth in this game. He averages 12.5 points per game for the season and is expected to go way over that against Crvena Zvezda.
Who is Crvena Zvezda’s new head coach?
Ioannis Sfairopoulos took over Crvena Zvezda a couple of days ago and led the team to a win against FMP in the Adriatic League. He is back by the sideline after taking a year off. He spent four seasons with Maccabi Tel Aviv, winning three championships in Israel. Previously, he led Olympiacos to two Greek championship, winning the coach of the year award in the country in 2015.
Partizan news, injuries, and starting lineups
The alarm is already on in Partizan as the team has lost the last three games. They lost at home to Barcelona, failed in overtime against Olympiacos on the road and even lost to Mega in the Adriatic League with a buzzer-beater. Zeljko Obradovic is not happy with his team and will have to make them play better against the biggest rival.

Crvena Zvezda news, injuries, and starting lineups
After a 1-3 start of the EuroLeague season, Crvena Zvezda’s front office decided to fire head coach Dusko Ivanovic. Ioannis Sfairopoulos will step into the position hoping to change the energy within the team. It is a fact that there are many new faces on the roster this season and they will need time to click together. However, Crvena Zvezda has the most expensive roster in team’s history and there are no excuses for the poor results.
