Crvena zvezda se nije plasirala u Ligu šampiona nakon remija u Beogradu protiv Makabija iz Haife (2:2). Ostaje žal zbog odličnog prvog poluvremena i neiskorišćene prilike da se na stadionu ”Rajko Mitić” ponovo raširi voljena mušema. Ove sezone crveno-bele čeka Liga Evrope.

Red Star were unable to enter the Group stage of the Champions League after drawing against Maccabi Haifa (2:2) in Belgrade. Despite the absolutely roaring support from the home fans who dressed the stadium in Red and White, as well as the excellent first half the drop in focus became a key advantage for the guests.

After a short Summer break the Serbian Superliga returns for the 2022/23 season. Sunday night marked the end of the opening 7 games, with the 8th awaiting Monday night. Trophy talks, champion ambitions, and the return of familiar faces feature this football weekend.

Zvezda draws against Braga (1:1) in Portugal, going straight to the eight-finals of the Europa League! Another footballing spring awaits the Belgrade Red and Whites whose fans are overjoyed tonight alongside coach Dejan Stanković.

Real beat Barcelona at Camp Nou (2-1) reaching the top of La Liga. But was fun to watch? The once exhilarating clash of the titans nearly became a single-goal match. With no Messi or Ronaldo, and a strange approach from both benches it was all a far cry from the 2010s. At what point did it all go wrong?

There is something about the Champions League. Its theme music and logo; the way the stadium seems to light up and take on a mystical aura. This is the trophy everyone wants. However, there still are teams more likely to actually win it.
