Red Star Belgrade Betting Tips: Form Guide

Red Star Hoping for Winning Return to Champions League

Red Star Belgrade, often known as Crvena Zvezda, return to Europe’s biggest stage following a gap of more than two decades, with the 1991 champions looking to make a winning start in front of over 55,000 fans at the Rajko Mitic Stadium. Manager Vladan Milojević has led Red Star to a 100% winning record at the start of the season, a run which leaves them top of the Serbian Super Liga, four points clear of their closest rival. Despite not having any star names within their ranks, the hosts do have a number of hugely experienced players to call upon, including captain Nenad Milijaš and former Chelsea youngster Marko Marin.

Red Star have also been in impressive form at the start of the season when it comes to goalscoring, with their four goals in a recent win away at Vojvodina taking their Super Liga tally to 16, while conceding just three times in the process. As well as this, Champions League qualifying successes over Spartak Trnava and Red Bull Salzburg demonstrate the progress that they have made over recent times.

Napoli Favourites to Win in Serbia

Despite having lost the hugely popular Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea over the summer, much is expected from Napoli this season, with the hugely experienced Carlo Anchelotti having taken over at the Stadio San Paolo. However, Napoli failed to make it out of their respective Champions League group last season, meaning that motivation should be high for their opening tie in Serbia on Tuesday.

As well as losing Sarri, the visitors also sold the hugely influential Jorginho to Chelsea, with the Italian international having left a void in their midfield. However, Napoli certainly still have one of the most feared attacking trio’s in the game, with Dries Mertens, Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne likely to line up in Belgrade on Tuesday. Anchelotti’s men will also be motivated by their recent Serie A defeat at Sampdoria, where they were comfortably outplayed during the 3-0 loss. The Italian’s have never made it passed the Round of 16 in the Champions League, however an opening victory over Red Star would certainly put them on the right path, having been drawn in a tough group, alongside 2018 finalists Liverpool, as well as French champions PSG.

Red Star Belgrade vs Napoli Preview: Recent Meetings

The two teams have never previously met in either a friendly or competitive fixture, meaning that no conclusions can be made when it comes to their head-to-head record. As a result, factors such as player availability and form will play a bigger role when making predictions surrounding the upcoming Champions League clash between Red Star Belgrade and Napoli.

Red Star Belgrade vs Napoli Prediction: Comfortable Away Victory

Our prediction for the clash between Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening is that the visitors will record a comfortable victory at the Rajko Mitic Stadium, with the Italian’s knowing that they must make a positive start to their Group C campaign, having also been drawn alongside Liverpool and PSG. Despite having been comfortably beaten in Serie A by Sampdoria in their last away tie, the experience of both manager Carlo Anchelotti and many of his players should be enough to see them secure all three points in Serbia.

The visitors also have a large number of goalscoring threats, with Red Star unlikely to have the quality to keep them out for the entire 90 minutes, even with their heightened motivation upon their return to Europe’s premier club competition. Napoli have undoubtedly been one of the most entertaining and impressive teams in the Champions League over recent years, with many predicting that they can make a serious run this time around.
