Crvena zvezda, after losing to Olympiakos in the most elite competition on the Old Continent, turns to duties in the regional competition. The team from Mali Kalemegdan welcomes Mornar from Bar in the eighth round of the ABA league on Monday at 8 p.m.
Basketball players Red stars after a very tiring period in which they played as many as four games in just six days, incomplete, they welcome Sailor in the eighth round of the regional ABA league.
Zvezda has an extremely stormy period behind it – a double round of the Euroleague. First, the red and white managed to outclass Fenerbahçe in front of the home fans, and then, two days later, they succumbed in Piraeus, where they were defeated by the vice-champions of the elite competition.
Now it is the turn of the obligations towards the regional competition. The team of Ioannis Sferopoulos’s chosen ones is coming to the feet of a team that has so far recorded only one triumph and as many as six defeats, and they are currently in last place in the table.
Zvezda “returns” to Pionir
Crvena zvezda basketball players will have to return to the “Aleksandar Nikolić” hall for the ABA League match because of the concert of Bosnian singer-songwriter Dino Merlin.
KK Red Star has to move out of “Stark Arena” in a little while, so he will return to the hall “Aleksandar Nikolić”.
They will play against Mornar on November 20 from 20:00 in “Pionir”.
The occupancy of the Arena due to the previously scheduled event is the reason why Zvezda goes to “Pionir”.
Dino Merlin will have concerts on November 18, 19, 21 and 22 and Star of the Sea from the Arena to the former home.
Due to the large number of season ticket holders, there will be no individual tickets on sale for this match, the club announced.
Also, the schedule of entering the hall for certain sectors will be different compared to the Belgrade Arena, Red Star announced.
What Spheropoulos says
The red and white will have as much as three days of break before the arrival of the club from Bar and enough time to freshen up and prepare for the game, after which, in case of victory, they could occupy the first place in the table:
An important game awaits us on Monday in the ABA league. We want, and we are only focused on that game, to play solid defense and look good in attack. Marnar is a dangerous team that we must not, and will not, underestimate.
What does Davidovac say?
After a very busy period, we will have a little more time to freshen up and prepare for the next week, the first next week is the most important, and that is the match with Mornar. A team with excellent shooters, we will definitely not underestimate that team and we will play to the maximum with the desire to win.
What does Pavićević say?
In the first seven rounds of the ABA League, Mornar achieved only one victory, and a miracle is needed to improve that performance in the eighth round.
It is unnecessary to talk about the quality of Zvezda, which assembled perhaps the strongest team in history. Her outside line is impressive and literally any basketball player can get you by themselves.
The experienced expert, however, admits that he wishes that the “red and whites” would not be at their level after the condensed schedule in the Euroleague.
– Zvezda enters this match after a hellish rhythm in the Euroleague. Our only hope is that the rival “takes a day off”. We should use the match to try to improve our form for games that mean much more to us – emphasized Pavićević.
What does Kovačević say?
Barani are in a series of five defeats, including the ABA League and the Eurocup.
Crvena zvezda is certainly one of the best ABA league players ever and a stable representative of the Euroleague. Without any doubt, it is known that he is the absolute favorite in this match, and it is up to us to put up as strong a resistance as possible. As well as to implement what we do and practice in training on the field.

The eighth round of the ABA League brings us new matches of eternal rivals. Partizan travels to Ljubljana to host Cedevita Olimpija, while Crvena zvezda welcomes Mornar on its floor. In the last published episode of the show “Triple Double” with Duško Savanović, we commented on the previous round and singled out several key items that may affect the further course of the competition.
Famous basketball coach Vlade Đurović expressed a strong opinion about Belgrade’s eternal rivals, stressing that Crvena zvezda and Partizan will have a hard time winning a place in the Euroleague playoffs.
In the last round of games of the ninth round of the Euroleague, Partizan and Alba met, that is, Olympiakos and Crvena zvezda. The red and whites suffered a defeat in Piraeus, while the black and whites celebrated against the Berlin team.
