The Partizan vs. Buducnost match will be played on Tuesday, July 11, at the JNA Stadium, Belgrade. This is the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round first leg. Both teams are starting the qualifying cycle from the second round; they didn't play in the first round.
Partizan and Buducnost played 15 games against each other before Montenegro became an independent state. Partizan recorded 13 victories, and we saw only two draws during that period. In Belgrade, they played eight times, and Partizan won all matches. Their goal difference at home against Buducnost is staggering 22:1.
Partizan won the title with the incredible series of victories at the end of the season, after their arch rivals Red Star failed to save a double-digit lead they had around the middle of the season. Buducnost is a well-known opponent, and in Partizan, everybody thinks they will eliminate them. CSKA Moscow interrupted their undefeated streak of 41 matches without a defeat in all competitions - before that, Spartak Subotica beat them in the league on August 20, 2016 - almost a year had passed!

Partizan had an incredible finish of the season and the weak start, while Buducnost had an excellent start, but a dreadful end of the season. We can't say anything about their form since they didn't play a match for 40 days now, but if they perform as they did in April and May, they don't stand a chance against Partizan.

Partizan is a huge favorite to win this match. We expect an exciting encounter, but we don't expect that Buducnost will be able to score.
