Filip started playing in OFK Beograd in 2004. After minor spells with Jedinstvo Paraćin, Mačva Šabac and Srem, he returned to the top flight by joining Hajduk Kula in 2008. In the first half of the 2011/12 season, Kasalica represented FK Sloboda Užice scoring a total of 7 goals in 14 appearances with 2 assists in the Serbian SuperLiga. He also made an appearance in the Serbian Cup in which se scored a goal. Due to these performances, the two biggest Serbian clubs, FK Partizan and Red Star Belgrade showed interest to sign Kasalica.

He came in as a substitute in the 75th minute of the game. After only one minute and thirteen seconds, he managed to score his first goal for the club. This made him the player that scored the fastest goals in his debut in the history of Red Star, beating the 50-year-old previous record of three minutes and 42 seconds held by Bora Kostić.[3] Only a week later on 21 March 2012, he scored a goal against Red Star's arch-rivals Partizan in the Eternal derby after coming on from the bench in the second half.[4]
