FK CRVENA ZVEZDA VS PARTIZAN (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 25.04.2019

A battle between Serbia’s biggest foes graces the football stage once again, as 28-time champions Red Star Belgrade take on 27-time winners and fierce rivals Partizan in a cross-city derby that has seen a fiery 21 yellow cards and two red over the last two H2Hs held here.
Title-chasing Red Star are on an astonishing 38-game unbeaten league run at home (W35, D3), last tasting defeat here two years ago in April 2017 – poetically, that was a 3-1 loss at the hands of Partizan. Furthermore, the hosts have scored a league-high 2.94 goals per home fixture this term, and have seen eight of their 15 top-flight home victories arrive by a three-goal margin or more!
However, Partizan typically give as good as it gets in Serbia’s ‘Eternal Derby’, and have lost just one of the last six H2Hs held here (W1, D4, L1). Three of those draws ended 1-1, as have the visitors’ last three away stalemates in the league, although notably they’ve lost their last four top-flight road trips.
Yet despite that, Partizan have netted in 75% of their away league games this term, but have kept a clean sheet in just 37.5% of those road trips. However, if they are to find victory here it could be via a tight 1-0 scoreline – that’s been the result in three of their six away league victories this term.
Players to watchEl Fardou Ben has scored in consecutive games, and is Red Star’s top league scorer this season with 15 goals. Meanwhile, 12 of Ricardo Gomes’ (PAR) 16 league strikes have been netted before half-time.
Stat attack: Red Star have been awarded four penalties across their last five top-flight home matches.
Three of Partizan’s last four away league goals were netted before half-time.
Five of the last six H2Hs featured under 2.5 goals.
