Milos Degenek plays in controversial Serbian derby
Australian defender Milos Degenek started Red Star Belgrade's derby against fierce rivals Partizan, with his side salvaging a 1-1 draw.
Known as one of the most explosive derbies in Europe, the game inevitably delivered an inevitable dose of controversy in the form of Red Star's equaliser.
Richmond Boakye awarded the goal with a lack of goal-line technology making it rather hard to tell whether the ball did in fact cross the white line.
The Belgrade Derby ends 1-1 and all the talk will be about Richmond Boakye's equalizer and whether it crossed the line or not. It's hard to say as there is no camera above the goalline. This is the best angle shown. Goal or no goal? pic.twitter.com/TDvoNyn9f3— Serbian Football (@SerbianFooty) September 23, 2018
Either way, Degenek's first taste of the derby ending with a crucial point that leaves Belgrade top of the table and caps off a busy week that also saw them hold Napoli to a 0-0 draw in the Champions League.
