Partizan played final friendly of Slovenia preps and lost 1-0 to Ukranian top-tier side Zorya.
Our team was close to score an opener as early as 1 when Zdjelar stole midfield possession and charged forward with the ball but his low shot was saved by Zorya keeper.
On 13, Soumah assisted to Ricardo followed by weak edge of the box shot.
On 24, Pantic played it into the box for Ricardo who seemed fouled in the box but Partizan player`s protests were in vain.
Ricardo sent a fine shot just wide on 36.
Zorya had a fine opportunity on 45 but keeper Kljajic made a fine save.
Newcomers Enache and Valiente came in for NR Miletic and Mitrovic at half-time.
Nice Partizan build-up on 50, Soumah passed it to Enache to the right flank followed by a cross and defensive clearance.
On 60, Ricardo shot over the bar with his 18m attempt.
Tymchyk was cautioned for the second time on 70 but he was not sent-off due to friendly game agreement.
Soumah`s edge of the area shot wide on 74.
Zorya scored the goal on 89 after a through pass and simple execution from Hordienko.
Partizan squad is back in Belgrade tomorrow getting ready for the first official game of the season – away EL round 1 qualifier to Rudar Plevlja on 12th of July.
