More commonly known as Red Star Belgrade, the Serbian outfit boasts the longest winning streak in any of the top tier European leagues. Currently in their winter break, Red Star Belgrade have won their last nineteen league games, stretching their lead at the top of the Serbian SuperLiga to 25 points, whilst remaining unbeaten and attaining a +50 goal difference.

Their tremendous form caught the attention of Liverpool in the January transfer window, when they signed the Serbian youngster Marko Grujic for £5.25 million. The young Serb, who has already been nicknamed the Serbian Gerrard by Liverpool fans and the Serbian Pogba in Italy has since returned to Belgrade on loan, where he looks set to win some more silverware for his childhood team before rejoining his new Liverpool teammates in the summer.

Young centre back, Vukasin Jovanovic, looks set for a bright future

19 year old Vukasin Jovanovic has attracted interest from Italy

With three Serbians in the most recent international squad, Belgrade boast the strongest outfit in the division and will find it tough to ward off bigger European teams from signing their best players in the summer. Grujic isn’t the only player who has been a star for Red Star, with other youngsters also looking set for a bright future. Centre back and national favourite, Vukasin Jovanovic was part of the Serbian side that lifted the U20 World Cup in 2015 alongside Grujic, and has been ever present in his last two seasons in Belgrade.  Another youngster, Srdsan Plasvic, 20, will be on a number of clubs’ radar, having provided nine assists and two goals in 21 appearances from midfield this season.

Whilst the youngsters will surely be poached by bigger European clubs in the future, the club at least have experienced players in Katai and Viera who look set to stay in Belgrade for the foreseeable future.

Red Star Belgrade restart their fixtures on the 19th of February where they take on FK Mladost Lučani at home, hoping to continue their remarkable run of form.
