Trabzonspor vs Red Star Belgrade Prediction

There is little to choose from between the two sides, although Red Star Belgrade have a superior continental pedigree.

Trabzonspor's disappointing run on the continent has seen them lose their last five matches in the UEFA Europa League. This will give Red Star extra confidence to go all out for the win and we are backing the spoils to be shared in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Trabzonspor 1-1 Red Star Belgrade
