The host team is from the town of Zrenjanin located in the northern part of Serbia, more precisely in the province of Vojvodina. They are formed on 11 may 1919, same year as Ljuboten. And they play on the same level, in the third Serbian league, the Vojvodina group. Ljuboten had to travel for 563 km for this friendly match.
Radnički won the game with a lone goal scored by Slaviša Bojanić nine minutes before the final whistle. But Ljuboten missed a huge opportunity to take the lead as captain Dejan Saveski failed to convert a penalty kick in the 40th minute as it was saved by the home keeper. The penalty foul came after Mario Micevski was brought down in the box.
