2016 National Cup final: Partizan-Javor: 2-0

MIROSLAV DJUKIC ON JAVOR CUP TIE:
– We want to reach cup final and win this trophy as Partizan strives on trophies. I`m sure Javor will try to trouble us a lot but we want to keep our winning streak intact and show we are on the road of recovery.
We are looking good now, team`s confidence is on the rise especially after excellent frist half performance against Cukaricki.
We will practice penalty-kicks as you never know what might happen but we would love to finish the game off within regular time.
Mitrovic feels pain in his foot while Soumah just recovered from illness and only did a bit of runs yesterday. But, I`m not going to shuffle the team much as we find cup competition quite important for us.
