Last week, Red Star’s appeal against their stadium ban for a supporters meaning they will play in front of their fans on Tuesday night. It means a lot. They will have 12th player against CSKA and we expect a great atmosphere. Marakana is unbelievable stadium with extraordinary atmosphere and this stadium can make a significant difference in home-field advantage. The news about the stadium being full will be a huge boost the Serbians.

They have played with big oscillating in form this season, but currently they are in fine fettle. CSKA Moscow have won three of the last four games in the Russian league.

Red Star coach Vladan Milojevic says: "I don't think there will be any calculations. The attack has always been the best way for defense; so if you start thinking differently, it can be wrong. I'm sure the players are thinking too."

Paweł Raczkowski from Poland will be the main referee on this match, while Michal Obukowicz and Tomasz Listkiewicz will be his assistants. Radosław Siejka is fourth official. Paweł Raczkowsky is showing a 4.4 average yellows per match and we expect from him to show Over 4.5 yellows on Tuesday night in Belgrade.
