Partizan are on a run of consecutive wins over the hosts and will look to extend their dominance in the fixture.
Sheriff returned to action on Wednesday with a 2-1 friendly loss against FC Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih. The Moldovan outfit’s last game in November 9 was a 2-0 win over FC Milsami Orhei in the league.
Sheriff are one of the sides who have dropped into the Conference League after finishing third in Group E of the Europa League with six points from as many games.
Meanwhile, Partizan were sent crashing down to earth last time out, as they were thrashed 4-0 by Mladost in the Serbian Superliga. That followed a 1-0 victory over FK Napredak Kruševac on February 5m which snapped their five-game winless run.
Partizan now return to the Conference League, where they finished second in Group D, behind first-placed OGC Nice on goal difference.

Sheriff Tiraspol vs Partizan Prediction
Sheriff have been in action just once since early November and could be in for a tough 90 minutes against Partizan. However, the Serbian side have struggled to grind out results since the turn of the year, managing just two wins in nine outings. Both sides should cancel out each other’s efforts and hold out for a share of the spoils.
