A dribbling display reminiscent of Red Star Belgrade legends such as Dejan Savićević was witnessed at Marakana during a match against Radnički 1923 from Kragujevac.

It has been a long time since such a dribbling feat was seen at Marakana, the famed stadium in Belgrade. Red Star Belgrade has been home to numerous dribbling maestros over the years, from Dejan Savićević and Dragoslav Šekularac to Dragan Stojković and Robert Prosinečki. Their mesmerizing plays often left the audience in awe.

In a recent match against Radnički 1923, Peter Olayinka, the Nigerian forward for Red Star, replicated such magic. Initially shifted from the left to the right side of the attack by coach Vladan Milojević, Olajinka demonstrated his versatility and exceptional skill across the pitch.

The highlight of the match, which was part of the 5th round of the Serbian SuperLiga playoffs, was Olayinka 's assist for the third goal. Red Star led 3-1 by the 35th minute when Hwang scored following an incredible run by Olayinka , reminiscent of Dejan Savićević's style. Olayinka dribbled past two defenders, nutmegging one and bypassing another,before delivering a surgically precise pass to the Korean, who successfully found the back of the net.
