Partizan squad arrived to Vilnius for return leg of El round 2 fixture against Trakai and boss Miroslav Djukic and skipper Sasa Ilic attended pre-match press-conference followed by a training session at LFF Stadium.
– We achieved a bit of a result advantage and it will be hard here but we won`t change much regarding our playing style, we`ll try to lead the proceedings. I can`t really change that much. It`s important I told my team what they can expect here. Trakai is organized side able to play fine football game and our team will find it hard to play against them tomorrow. But, we keep calm within our squad although we had some early tough time.
Whatever formation we choose to play, we want to be offensive and to dominate, to have possession as well. We`ll try to do that tomorrow too. We are not the kind of team who can play the waiting game. We need to score to keep our peace and feel more comfortable in the game, says Djukic.
– Our ambition is to reach EL group stage and Trakai is one of the teams we need to overpower if want to reach it. They are firm and organized side, well led by their Spanish coach and if we want to win tomorrow we have to be at our best. I hope we`ll play well, says Ilic.
Latest addition to injury list is left-back Zlatan Sehovic (muscle strain). Milan Smiljanic is still not eligible to play.
