Partizan mt:s and Crvena Zvezda Telekom in Serbian Cup final

radivoj korac cup

Tonight at 21.00 CET will start Final game in Radivoj Korac Cup. Partizan mt:s and Crvena Zvezda Telekom will fight for the first title in this season.

I am sure in one thing, we may expect fantastic atmosphere in Jezero Sport hall, as fans of both teams will be there.

Partizan mt:s had pretty easier schedule this year in this Cup competition as they played against Sloboda in Quarterfinals, and against Mega Vizura in semifinals.

Crvena Zvezda Telekom, had some tougher schedule, as they played against Vojvodina Srbijagas in Quarterfinals, and against Radnicki in semifinals.

Despite tougher schedule, Crvena Zvezda Telekom were dominant in both games, as they won in Quarterfinals with +25, and in Semifinals with even +26.

Partizan mt:s easily cruised over Sloboda in Quarterfinals, as they won with +23, but they were in real trouble quite unexpectedly in Semifinals as they won against Mega Vizura with +10.

In ABA Adriatic league, Crvena Zvezda Telekom holds second position with 14-6 record, and Partizan mt:s is currently at position 3 with 13-7 record.

Partizan mt:s finished competition in Turkish Airlines Euroleague after regular season, and Crvena Zvezda Telekom is still on the track in Eurocup competition, and still with chances for Quarterfinals.

It seems that Red and whites are in better form at this moment, or we may say that they usually play with some less oscilations if we compare with Black and whites.

Hours before this game, coach Vlada Vukocic (Crvena Zvezda Telekom) said: “We did good job in Semifinals. Congratulations to my players and thanks to our supporters.”

He continues: “Partizan mt:s maybe came easier to Finals game, and it is maybe their advantage. But, when you come to Finals, there are no more excuses.”

Igor Rakocevic, Crvena Zvezda Telekom team captain said: “We are not much tired, since we saved some energy in last quarter of Semifinals. We know Partizan mt:s very well, there are no much secrets. We hope so for trophy.”

We will see tonight. All Basketball fans in Serbia looking forward to watch this game, and hope for good game, great atmosphere and no incidents.

Maybe, Crvena Zvezda Telekom will have little more pressure since they invested much this season in roster, and they have high goals. Partizan mt:s talking whole season that they have young team, and not that high goals in this season.

If I have to predict, I would say that chances are 60-40 for Crvena Zvezda Telekom, but since I didn’t have much success with predictions, who knows.
