Prosinečki was the star of the tie as Rangers were defeated 3-0 at the Marakana in front of 75,000 fans. The tie was wrapped up in Glasgow with a 1-1 draw. This sent Red Star through to the quarter-finals, where they would remain behind the Iron Curtain, facing East German champions Dynamo Dresden.
History would suggest, often rightly so, that you should never discount a German side, and true to form the Bavarians fought back in Belgrade in front of another raucous crowd, leading 2-1 going into the final few minutes. The game had started so well for Red Star, with Mihajlović opening the scoring in the 25th minute with a classic free-kick that left the Bayern keeper Raimond Aumann rooted to the spot. However, the game switched on its axis when Stojanović went to make a fairly routine save from a Bayern free-kick and allowed the ball to squirm under his body and into the goal. Five minutes later, Manfred Bender popped up to make it 2-1 to Bayern, and level the tie, in the process silencing the Marakana.
After a 27-year absence, between missed qualifiers and forced exclusions, Red Star returned to the Champions League in 2018 - also included in the same group as Napoli. Fans of Europe's biggest teams have returned to see belgrade's red and white jerseys and legendary Marakana for the first time since the European Cup final. Macron, who proposed the classic striped template with thin gold straps alongside the thicker traditional ones, designed the uniform of the return to the Champions. The new sponsor Gazprom and the club's coat of arms were highlighted in the middle of one of the white stripes, surrounded by a golden line.
Miljan Miljanić left Red Star in 1974 to take up a lucrative offer from Real Madrid. A few years earlier, he had received an offer of USD 50,000 from Brazil to prepare the great team of 1970 for the Mexico World Cup, but he elected to continue the work he had started at Red Star, where an academy had been established that yielded almost 150 players. At Real, he won La Liga in his first two seasons but after 1976-77 ended without silverware, he resigned.
Toni Kroos: \"It was vital to start the group with a win. It was hard work, the pitch was a catastrophe, but I think we made the best of the situation and coped well. We fought hard and put up stiff resistance, and I think we deserved to win at the end.\"
A quintessential, modern wide attacker, Mitrovic likes to start on the left and cut in on his right to drive at the defence, put in a cross or shoot. This season he has 5 goals and 3 assists across all competitions in 26 appearances, although only 11 of them have been starts. He has been impressing in Europe too, earning his first cap for the Serbian national side.
While neither Red Star nor Copenhagen have made any public acknowledgement, YouTube clips have started to appear welcoming the Kiwi to Begrade and his Wikipedia entry already claims he is a Red Star player.
Before the start of the game, about 20,000 fans who gathered in Kombank Arena honored the victims of Sunday's crash of a Russian Tu-154 airplane, that killed 92 people, including members of the Russian Army's Alexandrov Ensemble. The Red Star supporters waved Russian and Serbian flags as a recording of the choir's rendition of Serbia's iconic WW1-era song \"Tamo Daleko\" was played in the arena. The fans sang along, and displayed a banner reading, in Russian, \"Let the singing of this 20,000-member choir be heard in the sky.\" Russian media have reported about this, while the touching gesture caused an outburst of emotional comments and reactions on the internet, said Sputnik, with Russians expressing their gratitude and friendship toward Serbians. The Russian media also noted that everyone present in the arena stood up to honor the Russian victims, and that Russian Ambassador Aleksandr Chepurin was also there. The Aleksandrov Ensemble performed in Serbia on several occasions. In the wake of the tragedy, the city authorities announced their plans to name a park in the center of Belgrade \"Alexandrov Choir Park\". 59ce067264
