Partizan played first friendly of Belek, Turkey, mid-season winter preps and North Macedonian top-tier side Tikves 2-1.
Our team dominated from the go with Menig`s shot saved by the keeper on 2 as well as Ricardo`s angled close range attempt on 10.
Partizan was shocked on 25 when Tikves was awarded a penalty after a handball in the box. Ivanovski scored from the spot although keeper Lukac guessed right but failed to get a touch.
Partizan equalized three mins later after Menig stormed from the right and played it for Jojic who finished off Dutch winger`s great play with a close range left-footed tap-in.
Our team was 2-1 up on 38, Ricardo turned and sent the ball into the far corner after assist from Pantic.
Boss Stanojevic changed 10 players at half-time with keeper Lukac the only remaining player from the first half line-up.
Partizan kept dominating but the scores remained unchanged. Youngster Bazdar was close to extend Partizan lead on 51 but his shot was saved by the keeper. The same player hit the crossbar with his angled shot ten mins later.
Next Partizan friendly is scheduled for 29th of January. Stanojevic charges will lock horns with Turkish top-flight side Istanbul Basaksehir.
