Bačka Palanka form and stats

Bačka Palanka's results here at Stadion Slavko Maletin Vava in the Super Liga have been very modest with 3 victories, 4 draws and 9 defeats. All in all it has been a very rough period for Palanka who hasn’t won a league-game in their last 13 attempts. Their previous win was against Macva Sabac, 86 days ago. With Palanka having lost three times in a row here, the pressure is increasing on the manager I. Stojković.

Preceding that match was a defeat to Vojvodina (1-2).

The Palanka fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 16 in 16 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 26 goals have been conceded.

Novi Pazar form and stats

There's been little loot from Novi Pazar's travels as they have only collected 7 points from 17 away games in the Super Liga. Novi Pazar, who have the most conceded goals (37) away in Super Liga, only have 1 win to counter their 12 defeats and 4 draws.

It's the second away game in a row for Novi Pazar, but there's smiles all around after the 1-0 victory versus Zlatibor Cajetina (placed 18th) in the Super Liga last time out. A loss against Cukaricki was the result prior to that, in a home game.

A heroic performance from Pazar in their game against Zlatibor Cajetina last time out. Things got complicated when Marko Marinković was sent off in the 21st minute with the match level. Despite the red card the team were able to pull off a 1-0 victory! Nikola Vlajković came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Zlatibor Cajetina last time out, making the manager D. Berber feel like a tactical genius.

The attacking power of Pazar when travelling is not overwhelming with 11 goals scored from 17 league matches away. The Novi Pazar manager D. Berber has some worries about the defense as 37 goals have been conceded in these travels. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 4 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
