TEPIĆ GAVE AN ADVANTAGE TO PARTISAN BEFORE THE DERBY: “They would be in focus even if they were playing a friendly match!” – Euroleague, Basketball Sports News

This is his view.

Former basketball player Partizan Milenko Tepic, he talked about the upcoming eternal derby, the first in history Euroleague. He is in conversation for Sports club pointed out that he would Partisan i Red Star were focused on playing a friendly match, as well as expecting an uncertain match.

If they were to play a friendly match, it would be the focus, not the Euroleague. They recently played in the ABA league, and it will be similar now. I mean the attitude towards the game and the approach. Interesting, uncertain, a lot of competitive charge, and it is important who is the host. This can be a factor that will decide the winner, that’s why black and white are in advantage. The household was of crucial importance many times in the past – he began Carpet.

Then he gave a slight advantage Partizan precisely because of the home field, but he noted that both teams are of good quality.

Both teams are of similar quality, and all have home advantage. But injuries happen, Partizan currently has a problem of that kind. And such things, which have always been an integral part of sports, and how they affect the team’s releases. That’s why I always want them to be as healthy as possible, not only for the derby, but for the rest of the season. The quality of both teams is undisputed, while the differences are in the nuances, which is especially attractive ahead of the Euroleague clash.


In the end, Carpet concluded that he hopes for as little tension as possible and that the derby in the Euroleague is a good thing for Serbian basketball.

It is a great and beautiful thing for Serbian basketball that they are eternal, for the first time together, participants in the Euroleague. Until the last round, they had an identical score, Zvezda tied several triumphs, so they are currently “running away” from one victory. But the last league round is far away, I think both teams have a chance to make it to the playoffs, which would be a great success. I think that Partizan has a slightly better team, but a lot depends on the health report. Regardless of who celebrates in the 12th round, a long and interesting season awaits us. I would like there to be no, or as little as possible, tension off the floor, but to just enjoy the eternal derbies – Tepić concluded.
