Partizan is away to Sochi on Thursday (6pm CET kick-off) as part of Conference League round 3 first-leg fixtures.
Obradovic (knee), Miljkovic (hamstring) Jovic (knee) are all nursing their respective injuries.
Partizan pre-match press-conference in Sochi was attended by midfielder Bibars Natcho and Head Coach Aleksandar Stanojevic.
-We were seeded in round 3 draw and it`s clear we have more European experience compared to Sochi. But, you cannot be regarded favourite to win this tie against the team who was only three or four points behind Russian league runners-up last season. You can all see what kind of stadium this is and how much they invest here.
Sochi has lots of new players along with some of the experienced ones. Their best striker departed but they signed a new one. Sochi has good individuals but they act more like a team.
Anyway, European competiton is of paramount importance for us, we want to be part of it and that`s how we prepare and think about everything.
“It`s special to come back and play again in Russia. I spent eight year of my career here and this is my second home all this time. But, I`m here to win my team tomorrow, this is what I expect and wait for. Of course, I have few friends I will play against tomorrow and I know enough about this club we`ll play against. Our staff did the job to prepare us and we will be ready for tomorrow.
