Before the first derby of the season, Partizan NIS coach Sašo Filipovski said:
"Every game is important and you need to prepare as much as possible for each one, as well as for this one. You need to play at a high level, with a high concentration of 40 minutes. Zvezda has a deep rotation, many players and they play with high intensity throughout the match. We have to find the answer. Both teams had a lot of games, so there is not much time for some great preparation. It is very important to be concentrated, to perform the elements of defense and attack precisely, and to be consistent throughout all 40 minutes, " Filipovski pointed out.
Before the match with Crvena zvezda MTS, the captain of the Steamroller Novica Veličković, says:
"The derby is a very difficult game, with a lot of charge and that is what is said before every derby. We are in a series of good results, but we should not look at it that way, but to be better from game to game and rise. For the continuation of the season, the Red Star, as its eternal rival, has a Euroleague team, a strong roster, and it is up to us to give our best tomorrow and to fight on the field until the last second. Certainly, in addition to the tension that the derby carries, we also need to be coolheaded ", Veličković pointed out.
