Partizan beat Radnicki Nis 4-0 in Gameweek 17 to return to winning ways. Goals were scored by Pavlovic on 7, Ricardo (`15 and `55) and Bazdar (`83).
After 317 days off the field, Danilo Pantic was among the starters while youngster Samed Bazdar got his first start of the season too.
Danilo Pantic on his return:
-Shame I couldn`t stage my comeback in a friendly but everything went well, there`s no pain and I feel like I did before I got injured.
Everything was good today, we opened the game well, then I crossed it for Ricardo`s header…We were all on a high level tonight and that`s why we achieved this comprehensive win.
I was so eager to play again but I didn`t expect to be a starter today. Some were not overly convinced I should get a start but it turned out good.
Samed Bazdar scored his second Partizan goal of the season:
-I was so glad to find my name on a teamsheet and finally achieve my dream and start for Partizan. I`m happy I scored and I try to use every minute I spend on the pitch to my best. The more I play, the more freedom I feel, you need to get your minutes. This goal I scored is for my girlfriend, my family and everyone who`s supporting me.
