Recap: Partek vs Red Star Belgrade 1:0/Sport1
Red Star Belgrade and its coach Barak Bachar managed to quiet the criticisms in recent days with a crushing 0-5 in 37 minutes in the Serbian Cup, but the Israeli coach knows that it will be worth nothing if the team does not beat Mladost Lučani tomorrow in the league (Saturday, 17:00, Sport4), which they beat 1-3 in the away game in the first round - in fact the first game in the league in which goalkeeper Omri Glazer suffered.
This week it was reported in Serbia that the game that could decide Behar's future will be in the derby against Partizan Belgrade in 12 days, meanwhile Bibars Natcho and his teammates are at the top with a three-point advantage, but tomorrow is another critical game for Red Star and not only because of the gap from first place - but because if the star does not lose, it will break Real Madrid's world record.

The Blancos are on a historic run of 121 home games in La Liga without defeat between 1957 and 1965, which will be broken if Red Star does not lose tomorrow. This is a sequence that began in April 2017 and continues to this day, so Glazer and Behar can sign it even if they only arrived this summer. When asked about it at the press conference, Behar clarified: "Our goal is to win, but we want to break the world record and lead Red Star Belgrade to another great achievement."
The coach said ahead of the game: "We are after a very important victory that raised our confidence. The fact that we didn't concede was very important, no less than the fact that we scored five goals. We believe that in all the last period we have had good games, in which unfortunately we have not been able to score more goals, but we know that we can succeed and that if we continue to play like this then everything depends on us in the next games as well. I hope we continue at the same pace and know that it is very important that we create as many situations as possible and take advantage of them."
