Partizan is away to Cukaricki on Sunday (7.05pm CET kick-off) as part of Linglong Tire Serbian Super Liga round 30 fixtures.
H2H (last six)
Partizan 5, Cukaricki 1, Drawn 0. Gd: 13-3, Partizan.
Only long-term absentees Danilo Pantic and Ivan Obradovic are out of contention. Natcho is doubtful. Aleksandar Miljkovic is close to full fitness and available for selection.
Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic ahead of Cukaricki away:
-This is a game against convincingly third-place side, this round`s derby match. We know how hard it is to play away to Cukaricki, so we will be fully focused.
I expect tight encounter and aggressive game from Cukaricki. They are one intensive side, young, potent and physically dominant. It will be a demanding game for us. Cukaricki has pace in the midfield, in the shape of Lukic, Kovac and Mihajlovic, they are the driving force behind the team.
They will press us high up the field. Their flank players and forwards are very aggressive as well.
Miljkovic is back in contention, Menig was rested last time around and he means a lot to us lately. We`ll have to see how Natcho feels ahead of this one.
