This will be the fourth Eternal Derby of this season, but unlike the previous ones, tonight's game will decide the winner of a trophy. Partizan and Red Star will put down another fantastic spectacle in which they are going to clash and see who will be the winner of the Serbian Cup for the season 2016/2017. We can expect an amazing atmosphere, choreographies, crazy fans and above all a passionate match, with an enormous amount of emotions.
Like in every game when the two of the biggest Serbian clubs meet, we will see a full stadium, and nothing less than a pure madness in the stands.
Partizan News And Form
Currently the black and white have 35 games without a defeat, and this is something pretty remarkable. Since Marko Nikolic, took over the managerial role, Partizan flourished. In the last four rounds, they reached the title, and their morale is extremely high because nobody expected this kind of development and many of their fans didn't believe that they will end the competition as the Champions. Also, they have 9 victories in the last 10 games, and in the last 3 fixtures, they scored 10 goals, conceding only two.
Red Star News And Form
After losing the title which was almost in their hands, Red Star decided to change their coach. Bosko Djurovski will try to save the season and win at least Serbian Cup, and provide a reason for the celebration among their fans. Almost the whole state saw Red Star as the new champions, but eventually, in the end, many flaws were seen in their game, and they totally deserved to lose the title trophy. Red Star has three consecutive wins in which they scored 11 and conceded only one goal. It seems that they started to recover a little bit and that they will be ready for tonight's challenge.
Head To Head
Partizan didn't lose against the Red Star in the last four games. So far this season they are much better having two victories and one draw, and even at that one game where Grobari didn't win, they put dow a much better performance, and they deserved to win. In the last meeting, Partizan totally outplayed their opponents and won 1-3, at Rajko Mitic stadium.
Injured And Suspended Players
-Leonardo 34 games 24 goals 5 assists
-Uros Djurdjevic 29 games 24 goals 2 assists
-Marko Jankovic 30 games 4 goals 3 assists
-Richmond Boakye 16 games 12 goals 1 assist
-Srdjan Plavsic 33 games 8 goals 4 assists
-Predrag Sikimic 24 games 7 goals 2 assists
We have to say that Partizan is slightly closer to winning this one, but we have to add that in games like this, especially in the Eternal Derby, the current form has no influence on the performance. We expect to see a moderate umber of goals, between 2 and 3. Also, our second proposition for this match would be Partizan over 1.5.
Goals: Between 2 and 3
Goals: Partizan Over 1.5
