He's not played for over a month and been training apart at Napoli. He trained with the group for the first time 8 days ago but they still don't know whether he'll be available this weekend. Wouldn't surprise me if he's crossed the line of playing on painkillers/injections (which he did up until Napoli still had a chance in Europa League over a month ago). He's been dragging this toe injury for a long time.

I am pretty sure he has a problem with Krstajic and is another lost player along with Ivanovic, Nastasic, Grujic and Milivojevic.

He has been injured though. Missed quite a few Napoli games this season especially towards the end. Let's wait and see. I don't see any conflict between Maksimovic and Krstajic for the time being.

Ok, probably Maksimović is really injured now, but sorry we never had such a lier coach like Krle so he lost all credits.

This is my preferred squad for the upcoming match against Ukraine:

S: Jovic
F9: Tadic
LM: Kostic
RM: Gacinovic/Lazovic
CM: Lukic
DM: Maksimovic
LB: Kolarov
CB: Milenkovic
CB: Spajic/Veljkovic
RB: Rukavina (Sigh)
GK: Dmitrovic


For RM or 1 of the CB positions, I don't care who plays between the two players. Both great options.

I'm only choosing this lineup with a RB because we all know Krstajic won't play with 3 CB's. Otherwise, we could easily omit Ruki from the lineup. Shame.


We shouldn't be afraid of Ukraine. In every sense of the matter, we are a superior squad. 3 of our attacking players are in the form of their life (Jovic, Tadic, and Kostic). There's no reason to waste this opportunity. Who knows where we will be with form and injuries for the home leg against Ukraine. We have to take advantage of it now and come out really aggressive. I really hope Krstajic doesn't get dominated again in the 2nd half like he does against every opponent. The moment the opposing coach figures out the tactics in the first half, they always adjust and own us in the second. Embarrassingly so like we saw against Germany and Portugal. I hope he's prepared this team and his staff as well.
We should be leaving this international break with 6 points and our heads up high as we take a comfortable lead in our group.

Honestly I am not confident at all. First of all Krle had ton of luck in a lot previous matches. Sometimes that needs to stop. Second he already announced we are going there not to loose match. Preparation like that could be dangerous, especially against side we don't do well, yes those were friendlies but still. Ukraine is tough team and they know what they want on the pitch. And third our players are already on vacation, I don't think there are mentally ready for this game, I saw that in past a lot of times already.

4pts from both games and we are good.

That line-up is almost something you'd try in a video game because you're looking for one characteristic

It'll be interesting to see how Serbia lines up defensively. It's probably two different types of systems. The disposition of roles will be crucial. Remains to be seen if we're staying with two strikers or one, how Ljajić handles the defensive duties and how Kolarov slots in at CB (he did well there at Manchester City but hasn't played in that position for quite some time now). I think that's the future for Kolarov btw. We should gain alternatives from CB to play ourselves out pressure with diagonals.

And Krstajić is finally testing the 3-backline and two strikers. Bows down to the media and fan pressure in my opinion (even if it makes sense). Our wing-backs will need to do a lot of running though. Let's see how it pans out.

We look going forward, but you can see how much we're missing a natural defensive midfielder. Ljajic and Maksimovic, not enough steel there.

I think Maksimovic missed marking his man

Ughhhhh 2-0

They have sooo much space in the middle. We definitely need a DM in there. Their player blasted the ball home

Could have been 5-0 by now but Dmitrovic has kept us in the game and they are shooting wide

Ukraine is dominating possession especially in our 3rd but whenever we do get the ball we look dangerous going forward
