Derby of the bottom closes 2018 in Ljubuski

Izvidjac - Vojvodina

Izvidjac will on Tuesday (20.15 CET) welcome Metalurg in what will be the final match of the first part of the season for both teams. It's clear both Izvidjac and Metalurg will look to put a victorious end to a not so good four-month period as a result of which fans in Ljubuski will on Tuesday evening witness derby of the bottom. Hosts are the only team which hasn't managed to reach a single victory so far this season with the only point they reached coming from their encounter against Metalurg in Skopje earlier this season. Metalurg on the other side have one win and one draw and they'll definitely look to widen the gap a bit more between themselves and bottom-placed Izvidjac with another quality performance despite of all the injuries they are currently dealing with. 

Match will be broadcasted on Arena Sport channels, MRT (Macedonia) and Sport Klub (Poland) so make sure to tune in!

Mario Bjelis, Izvidjac coach: 
We're hosting a good team on Tuesday in a match in which we'll certainly have to give everything we've got at the moment to come out with a positive result. We've got to mainly focus on playing solid defense. We watched some film on them and hopefuly we'll be able to reach a good result

Josip Kvesic, Izvidjac goalkeeper: 
It is difficult to compare this Metalurg team and the one they had in the beginning of the season. What I can promise is that we'll give our best to win the match playing in front of our fans. 

Danilo Brestovac, Metalurg coach: 
We have quite big injury problems prior to this one and we still don't know whether Lazarevski, Arsenovski and Jagurinovski will be able to suit up at all. Ante Tokic had an ankle issue and Miha Pucnik is also questionable. I hope we'll be able to count on some of them in the duel against Izvidjac. 

Martin Tomovski, Metalurg goalkeeper: 
We'll play two matches in three days but our goal is to finish the first part of the season on a high note – with a win over Izvidjac. We're dealing with some injuries at the moment but we'll look to deliver the best possible outing like we always do.
