Barak Behar and Red Star Belgrade will meet Mladost tomorrow (Saturday), 3 points away from first place in the table – Real Madrid. But a win or draw in this match would be equal, except for points in the table, a new and particularly impressive world record: the longest unbeaten streak in the domestic framework on home turf.
The star currently has a 121-match unbeaten streak at the Maracanã Stadium, the last time they lost was in a derby against Partizan in April 2018, when the Black and Whites beat the Reds 1-3. But Red Star will avoid defeat, breaking Real Madrid's record of not losing 121 matches between 1957 and 1965. Out of her 121 matches, the star won 109 and another 12 meetings were undecided, with an astonishing goal record of 53:336.
"We only think about winning," the coach clarified at the press conference: "But of course if we break the record, it will be great for the star, we have to maintain the energy we had in the previous game, even though there were rotations. You have to play aggressive for 90 minutes, attack, press and create situations. We scored nice goals in the cup game and I hope that helps increase confidence in the team."
