Partizan played final friendly of Cyprus preps today and
Ozegovic was sidelined due to a minor injury picked up few days ago while Zdjelar felt a muscle pain during warm-up and made way for Jevtovic.
Partizan had two fine opportunities in the first half – 26th minute neat free-kick from Tosic and 45th minute edge-of-the-box drive from Jankovic but Shakhtyor keeper made two great saves.
On the other side of the pitch, Shakhtyor didn`t threat Stojkovic over the first 45 mins.
After the break, Partizan pushed forward from the go and scored early on 48 when Tawamba reacted in the box with a back-heel move after edge-of-the box drive from Pantic.
Shakhtyor hit on the break on 68 and equalized after clumsy reaction and own goal from NR Miletic.
On 79, Urosevic was close to score but he shot wide by the left post with his left-footed edge of the box drive.
Fine through ball for Vulicevic on 81 followed by a low cross into the 6-yard box was met by defensive clearance.
Partizan took another lead on 83 after Urosevic`s cross and sub Djerlek`s tap-in.
Break from Partizan anf great opportunity in injury time, Jankovic played it for Soumah who passed it for unmarked Vakulko whose low shot was saved by Shakhtyor keeper.
All together, Partizan played 6 friendlies here in Cyprus, winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 2. Gd: 9:4, Partizan.
