Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade start their new EuroLeague season with a battle against the back-to-back champions Anadolu Efes in Istanbul. It's clear that Vladimir Jovanovic's team will be lacking two important perimeter players but will be able to count on two big reinforcements under the basket, via Mozzart Sport.

Off-season signings -- Filip Petrusev and Miroslav Raduljica -- will be available for a game at Sinan Erdem Dome. How many minutes they will get depends on the coach's rotations.

"Raduljica and Petrusev are in the training process," Jovanovic told media ahead of the fresh start.

Unfortunately, the Red Star will be missing Nemanja Nedovic and Ognjen Dobric due to injuries.

Nedovic still hasn't fully recovered from the calf muscle rupture, while Dobric sustained a left leg setback during the pre-season game against Olympiacos Piraeus. The latter injury is not a serious one, but he will not be able to help his teammates in Friday's match.

Anadolu Efes-Crvena Zvezda duel is scheduled for Friday, 19:30 CET.
