Our prediction for this Serbia Super Liga match:
Crvena Zvezda play host to Novi Pazar at Rajko Mitic Stadium in the opening match of the season. The title holders aim to make a flying start to the season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the newcomers. Aleksandar Katai is back, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the former LA Galaxy star when the two teams face each other in Belgrade. Over the years Crvena Zvezda have turned their Rajko Mitic Stadium into a real fortress, and even though the game will be played behind closed doors, we are tempted to put our money on the Serbian giants.
Novi Pazar, on the other hand, are eager to impress on their return to the Serbian Super League, but they should not be looking for points in away matches against the title-chasing teams. In their last meeting in the national championship Crvena Zvezda defeated Novi Pazar 2-0.
