Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic after the game:

-We scored early which was great. It was hard to play in such humid weather conditions but we did play well. I have to be pleased with our performance three days after European game, boys did everything I asked for. Unfortunately, we had to sub Jovic at half-tiime due to an injury, we`ll see how his knee is. We want to play as much players as possible as we have a congested fixture list.

I`m particularly pleased with Ricardo scoring, Holender also opened his account and Pantic proves his quality with each new game. Clean sheet is important too but we play football for fans and I love when we have strong pace. Zivkovic also played great, he has a calm pass and fine crossing ability.
