FK Partizan vs Buducnost Podgorica
UEFA Champions League 2017/18 – Second qualifying round
Date: Tuesday, 11th July 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Partizana (Belgrade).
The two champions of neighboring countries will collide in the Champions League qualifiers this mid-week when FK Partizan Belgrade welcome Buducnost from Podgorica.
The Serbian champions are in the excellent state. The atmosphere in the club is very positive ahead of the CL qualification, the crucial campaign for every Serbian club.
Most importantly, two best players of the entire league Leonardo and Djurdjevic will stay in FK Partizan. Without them, ‘crno-beli’ aren’t nearly as sharp up front as they are with them.
New Partizan’s manager Dukić is very content with Partizan’s preparation period and he didn’t hide it in his interviews.
Partizan played five friendly matches. In the initial match, surprisingly, they were defeated by FK Mladost 1-0. However, they put on two amazing performances immediately; at first, they won against Kapfenberg followed by the 2-3 victory over FC Copenhagen, Danish champions and Champions League participants. Afterward, they faced two Russian sides. CSKA Moscow was too much to handle, but Partizan finished their preparations with 1-0 victory over Ural.
Buducnost is a modest club from Montenegro capital. They lost some important players already – Vujovic, Vusurovic, Vukcevic and Raickovic. In addition to the aforementioned finished transfers, captain Risto Radunovic is likely to find another club.
The Montenegrins played only two preparation matches. They were beaten by mid-tier Serbian side Javor, followed by the draw with Bosnian Banja Luka.
