About 50,000 tickets were released for today's "Eternal" derby Red Star vs Partizan. After 90 minutes of great struggle, the result on the scoreboard showed 2-0 in favor of red and white! On the wings of great fans, team chosen by Robert Prosinecki have done what is expected of them for a long time - they used their opportunities. Head coach of Red Star Robert Prosinecki, after the victory over Partizan 2-0 at Maracana, has certainly had plenty of reasons to celebrate. On the arrival at the Media Center, after the game, was greeted by applause from the present journalists and Red Star supporters. Thank you for all the congratulations. We were lucky but we deserved it tonight and at nearly full Maracana. This is a very important victory for us all! Most important is the confidence of our players. Our team had five debutantes in the derby. This victory is very important for the continuation of the championship. Partizan played very good first half, but we did too a year ago, dominated, and we lost. This time result was the most important, and it says 2-0 in our favor - said Robert Prosinecki.
A tough match! After the first goal, we got additional security, and withstand all enemy attacks. I dreamed about this, said Luka Milivojevic. Sparkling Red Star defender Nikola Maksimovic could not hide his emotions after his derby debut. I think we played particularly smart. It was a great reaction by Luka Milunović that allowed us to further play with more confidence and security. I am pleased with his party, and play the entire defense - said Maksimovic. We are now expected to fight for points in the championship. We showed that we know to play football, we are the best when needed the most, and I hope that we will end up in the same rhythm through the season - he has been dedicated.
