Miroslav Djukic on derby game:
– Derby game comes at good moment for Serbian football. Both rivals are euphoric after qualifying for El group stage. Well, let`s see who`s better side. I`m sure we will witness European spectacle.
My opinion is that no team has advantage in derby game. Nothing matters any more once the game kicks-off. This is going to be one big match and we are for it.
Boys are working good and I`m really happy how it all goes from the day on. We need time for our concept and system, nothing happens over night. We want teamwork here and one stable Partizan. There should be no stars, everyone should work for the team.
Crvena Zvezda plays great and we respect that but we are Partizan. We are playing away but we will try to impose our game, to lead possession and to attack.
Full-back Nemanja R Miletic:
– I wish this derby to be special as we both entered LE group stage. It will be a great battle on the pitch and on the stands but we don`t really care who we play against as we always aim to win.
This will be a great experience for me. I never played Eternal derby game and we all know what it`s all about. I`m glad I`ll be able to feel derby atmosphere and I expect us to win. We celebrated win against Videoton on our way back and we turned our thoughts to derby game the next day. Although we played in Hungary on Thursday, I`m fully fit for this one.
