Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic after the game:

-We played well, had 5 or 6 clear-cut opportunities and not turning them into goals is the only thing I can fault my team about. Boys did their best and I can only praise them. We failed to score more goals but we take a win into return leg. Now, we turn to domestic matters and our upcoming game away.

Winger Lazar Markovic:

-We played in front of home crowd and deserved to score one or two goals more. We`ll travel to Slovakia to secure next round of Conferrence League where we`ll probably meet really good Sochi team. But, we look to our next domestic rival first.

Left-back Slobodan Urosevic:

“Playing in front of our fans after such a long time filled my heart. I`m pleased with our performance but I do regret we failed to score more. We`ll go to Slovakia with our minds set as if we played a goalless draw.
