Sitting at the top of the table after a first few games is great. And even better
is that the biggest threat in the title race, Partizan, is struggling early on.

European Dream:

UEFA Champions League 2nd qualifications round:

1. Vardar - Crvena Zvezda 1-1
15' M. Pavkov 0-1
90+1 B. Bagasovski 1-1
Great performance denied by the late goal. Struggling to score again.

17' S. Plavsic 1-0
25' M. Donald 2-0
80' B. Bagasovski 2-1
Unfortunate not to keep the clean sheet but we're going to the next round

UEFA Champions League 3rd qualifications round:

1. Crvena Zvezda - Celtic 1-1
29' S. Sinclair 0-1
33' S. Srnic 1-1
Strong opponent and a solid result going into Scotland

2. Cetic - Crvena Zvezda 3-0

9' P. Roberts 1-0
54' S. Sinclair 2-0
84' L. Griffiths 3-0
Celtic absolutely dominated and they deserved to go through

1. Paok - Crvena Zvezda 2-1
11' P. Henrique 1-0
31' U. Racic 1-1
48' E. Kace 2-1
A draw is a fair result but Kace scored absolute wondergoal from about 30 metres. We are going to Greece with a 1 goal deficit.

2. Crvena Zvezda - Paok 1-0

66' L. Adzic 1-0
A kid that has been promoted to senior squad 2 months earlier now brings us back to Europe after 10 years!!!
And a goal was an absolute beauty: First a great pass from Mihailo Ristic to Jadson, and then Jadson backheels the ball to Adzic who shoots with a lot of confidence and hits the bottom right corner of the goal. Wonderfull!!

Partizan struggling on all 3 fronts, while Crvena Zvezda plays solid. But this is derby anything can happen. And this happened:
Convincing start from Crvena Zvezda is crowned with a Ristic's banger from a free kick in the 28th minute. Domination continues even after. Loads of chances before the 59th minute and Adzic's header into the back of the net. 4 minutes later Elia Soriano scores his first of hopefully many derby goals. We managed to score one more in 88th minute. It was youngster Adzic again.

European Dream

After beating PAOK we qualified for the Group Stage of UEFA Europa League. Here are all 6 games in one place.

1. Crvena Zvezda - Spartak Moscow
First game of the group stage. We came out bravely and inm the 10th minute we were awarded with a Yeschenko own goal that gave us the lead. The same guy, Yeschenko, scores only 3 minutes after his own goal, but this time he hits the right net and it's tied at 1-1. We were still attacking and in the 25th minute Srnic gives us a 2-1 lead. That was the final result of this game. Great performance that gave us 3 points.

2. Standard Liege- Crvena Zvezda
First away game in Europe and we came out attacking the opposition from the start of the game. After 28 minutes Srnic finds the back of the net and it's 1-0 to us. Still attacking and our second goal comes in the 74th minute. It's Guelor Kanga. Well deserved victory is crowned with Srnic's second goal in the 87th minute. 0-3 is the final result.

3. Crvena Zvezda - Inter 0-2

Inter dminated us the whole game. Not a lot to say.

4. Inter - Crvena Zvezda 4-1
Racic scored the only goal for us. 2 losses and we need to fight for the knockout stages.

5. Spartak Moscow - Crvena Zvezda

Great performance awarded with Srnic's goal in the 44th minute. We were playing great but we were denied by the late goal in the 89th minute by Promes. Final score was 1-1 and we need only 1 point against Standard to qualify.

6. Crvena Zvezda - Standard
Biggest game in my career so far. I decided to give the chance to youngster Adzic cause he scored against PAOK to get us through the playoffs and aswell against Partizan. The game started perfectly for us. Only 2 minutes in and we take the lead. And who scored? Well, it was Adzic again! 9th minute and it's 2-0 for us. It' Adzic again! THe kid is a monster. 42nd minute and it's Soriano and it's 3. 4-0 after 59 minutes and it's a hattrick for Adzic. Standard scored 2 goals later on but we go through as the final result stands at 4-2.

We drawn Saint Etienne in the first knockout round

Stay tuned for the January transfer window. We had to sell some of our young prospects as they were unhappy to stay
