Nikola Stojiljković (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Стојиљковић, pronounced [nǐkola stojǐːʎkoʋitɕ]; born 17 August 1992) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Red Star Belgrade, on loan from Braga.[1]

Club career


Born in Niš, Stojiljković spent his formatting years at Partizan and Rad. He made his Serbian SuperLiga debut with Rad on 30 May 2009, coming on as a substitute and providing a vital injury time assist in a 2–2 home draw with Vojvodina. During his tenure at Banjica, Stojiljković scored five goals in 26 league appearances, all of them in the 2011–12 season.


In the 2013 winter transfer window, Stojiljković moved to Serbian First League club Čukarički, scoring seven goals in 15 league appearances until the end of the 2012–13 season,[2] thus helping them win promotion back to the top flight. With seven goals in the 2013–14 Serbian SuperLiga, Stojiljković was one of the most deserving for the team's success, finishing in fifth place in the competition, eventually securing them a spot in the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League. He scored two goals in the qualifying phase, including the winning goal against SV Grödig. Stojiljković finished the season as the club's top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions, helping them win the 2014–15 Serbian Cup, the club's first ever major title.[3]


On 8 August 2015, Stojiljković was transferred to Portuguese club Braga, on a five-year deal.[4] He made his debut for the club eight days later, coming on as a 61st-minute substitute for Rodrigo Pinho in a 2–1 home win over Nacional in the first game of the Primeira Liga season. Stojiljković scored his first goals as an Arsenalista on 21 September, a brace in a 5–1 win over Marítimo also at the Estádio Municipal de Braga.[5] In September 2017, Stojiljković moved on loan to the Turkish side Kayserispor.[6] After the end of 2017–18 campaign, Stojiljković returned to Serbia in June 2018, joining Red Star Belgrade on one-year loan deal.[7]

International career

Stojiljković represented his country at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level. He missed out on the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship due to an injury.[8]

In March 2016, Stojiljković received his first call-up for the senior team for friendlies against Poland and Estonia.[9] He made his debut in the former on the 23rd, starting in a 1–0 defeat at the Stadion Miejski in Poznań and being substituted for Filip Đuričić after 56 minutes.[10]
