Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic after the game:

-We have regrets as we had three or four great opportunities before Crvena Zvezda equalizer. It was hard to try and defend our lead and we deserved to win although both team work hard to get this result.

I`m not pleased with this outcome as we had a lead for almost an hour and failed to finish the opponent off. We were a bit shy early on but things started to happen once we scored. We had four or five good opportunities and should have converted one at least.
