  • Tomane is suspended for this match while Gobeljic is an injury concern but otherwise head coach Vladan Milojevic has plenty of options.
  • Ex-Huddersfield winger Van La Parra could feature after making his first start for the club in their 2-1 win over Indjija at the weekend.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Borjan; Pankov, Degenek, Milunovic; Gajic, Jovancic, Canas, Jander; Garcia, Pavkov, Van La Parra

THE PREDICTION

Crvena Zvezda surprised many with just how competitive they were in the Champions League last season and they even registered a 2-0 win over eventual winners Liverpool. That said, their best results came at home as they struggled badly on their travels which does not bode well when facing Bayern.
