Panathinaikos – Crvena Zvezda Belgrade Match Prediction | 28-08-2019 14:30

Gist scored 16 with 6 reboundsm while James, Singleton and Lekavicius all had 10 points each. Panathinaikos are coming into this match after a majestic performance against Unicaja Malaga in Spain last week, whom they defeated by 79:90. Panathinaikos are now sitting at the 6th spot of the Euroleague (W15 L11), scoring 77.11 points per match, while conceding 77.00 in the process. However, something happend over the halftime break, as Panathinaikos emerged for the second half in full speed. Rivers was awesome with his 24 points and 6 triples, while Calathes posted a near triple double again (12p, 11as, 8r). Panathinaikos actually made a really bad start in the first quarter and the first half overall, as they were already down by 44:32 at the end of the first half. They severely outscored their opponents in both the third and the fourth quarter, and eventually overturned the result in their favor. They will be coming into this match with a couple of injury concerns, as Lojeski and Pappas are most likely not going to compete.

HJK, on the other hand, is winless in their last four overall ties, and in six of their last eight in front of the home crowd. On top of that, the visitors of the day are an in-form squad. On the road, they remained invincible in 16 of their last 17 too. They are on a winning streak of four games and was unbeaten in 32 of their last 35 fixtures.

The Team of the City as Copenhagen is called in Denmark has won the Danish football championship eleven times, while it has also won the Danish Cup on seven occasions. The club forms great rivalry with Copenhagens suburban club Brondby IF with games between the two club attracting some of the biggest crowds in Danish football history in this so called New Firm derby.

FK Crvena Zvezda did an amazing job in the past few days. There had to deal with 3 absent players. The board was quick to act and signed Milos Degenek, who can play at almost any position in the back. Moreover, Jovicic and Tomane are out of the field due to their injuries, while Gobeljic earned himself a suspension for a direct red card.

FK Crvena Zvezda vs FC Copenhagen prediction is written ahead of the Champions League Qualification match at the Rajko Mitic Stadium. The top 10 betting sites offer plenty of lucrative opportunities for this game, and I suggest you check them out. I expect to see a close-contested affair where the hosts ultimately prevail.

Gajic was a starter in matches against Portugal and Macedonia, but he missed the Spain clash with injury. The Serbs failed to impress at the tournament in Poland, with the team losing to Portugal and Spain in Group B, while sharing the spoils with Macedonia. Milan Gajic is a youth international for Serbia and he represented the Eagles at the 2017 European Championship.

Thanks to a 2-0 win over Helsinki at Stadion Rajko Mitic in Belgrade, Crvena Zvezda moved one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League third qualifying round. Vladan Milojevics troops extended their winning run in all competitions to four games and seeing that the Finnish champions had no more than one shot on target in the first leg, we predict that the Serbs are going to record yet another victory over Tor Thodesens troops.

Crvena Zvezda Belgrade vs Panathinaikos Athens: Tips

Furthermore, they are likely to go all at it from the start in order to secure an early lead. As the game progresses, they are bound to focus on defending the result, therefore, providing a low number of goals. I am sorry to report that H2H records are non-existent given that this is the first official match between the two clubs. However, I am basing my decision on other relevant factors such as team quality and the available roster.

However, it is worth noting that they faced significantly weaker teams than the former champions of Europe. Furthermore, they are on a five-game winning streak. I believe theyll give the Reds a run for their money, however, it is unlikely for them to make an upset. In order to be in the qualification semi-finals, they got the better of TNS after a two-legged tie with the total aggregate of 3-0. FC Copenhagen, on the other hand, have been great in recent weeks.

Ghana international Richmond Boakye has been scoring goals for fun of late, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Helsinki have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Crvena Zvezda and we are positive that the visitors will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. A man to watch in the away team will be Marko Marin, who impressed in the first leg.

Stadion Rajko Mitic will be packed when Crvena Zvezda and Copenhagen face each other in the Champions League third qualifying round, first leg. The Danish champions have been in a fine form of late and seeing that they looked sharp at the back in back-to-back wins over TNS, we are positive that the visitors will rely on their rock-solid defence in the Stadion Rajko Mitic showdown. Vladan Milojevics troops failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Helsinki at Telia 5G-areena, but it is well known that the Serbian champions produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Crvena Zvezda did well to beat Premier League giants Liverpool in Belgrade in the 2018/2019 Champions League groups stages and seeing that coach Vladan Milojevic can count on key players for Tuesdays clash, we are tempted to put our money on Marko Marin and Co.
