BEFORE THE MATCH
The red and whites are back on the home track after the victory over Ludogorets in the Europa League (1: 0) this Thursday, while the rival
The strategist of the champion of our country first touched on the health bulletin.
– Matches go fast, little time for rest. We are already used to pressure, compulsions, temperatures, injuries. There will certainly be no Nikolić, Živković who has a muscle strain, Dioni and Bakajok. I will see in what condition they remained after tonight’s training – said Stanković.
The coach of Zvezda is aware that it is much easier to play when he wins in Europe.
– Victories are penicillin for everyone. We had games where we lost in Europe, so we came back stronger. The matches in Europe and the championship are different, it is important to us that we had a good rest. We will have focus, we will play two games at home, we expect six points, to approach the end of the half-season … I don’t know if we would have played differently against Ludogorets if Rodić had been there. When it comes to going out on the field, I deal with the players I have. The boys deserved it. They have shown that anything can be done with them.
The head of the “pigeons'” professional staff, Vladimir Gaćinović, points out that the duel with Crvena zvezda is a good opportunity for the team to see at what current level it is:
– Zvezda is the favorite, there is no dilemma. The match will be good for us to test ourselves, to see where we are and at what level. We will have the opportunity to compete against the team of European format, as far as our possibilities are concerned, with the desire to provide a good game. We have nothing to lose, but we will not be relaxed. Players will get a certain plan and tasks, and if we fulfill them and provide a good game, the question is whether that will be enough for a positive result. We are aware that Zvezda exceeds our limits, they have enough players in the roster to put together two teams of equal quality, so that personnel problems and matches with Ludogorets will not significantly affect the concept and game system of the hosts, said Gacinovic.
