Posted on 26 November 2014  - 11:30

Partizan Belgrade have moved six points clear in the Serbian SupaLiga since our first meeting in Group C of the Europa League in September.

Andros Townsend takes on Nikola Drincic in Belgrade - Drincic hit the winner in October's derby against Crvena Zvezda (Red Star)Harry Kane in action in Belgrade

It was a tough goalless draw in Belgrade back on September 18 with chances few and far between - Harry Kane came closest to breaking the deadlock when he rattled the underside of the crossbar in the first half.


Since then, Partizan have played 13 times in all competitions with eight wins, a draw and four defeats.

However, three of those defeats have come in the Europa League, home and away against Besiktas and somewhat surprisingly at home to Asteras Tripolis.

In domestic action they've reeled off seven wins and a draw in nine, including victory over fierce city rivals Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) at Stadium Partizan in October - Nikola Drincic hitting the only goal of the game.

They arrive at the Lane on the back of four straight wins in the league.

Our form vs Serbian teams - We've played three teams from Serbia in Europe and have won three of the five matches.
