After two-week international break, Serbian Super League continues with a round 8 games. Partizan is home to Mladost Lucani on Saturday, 9pm kick-off, with live coverage from Arena Sport TV1.
Partizan and Mladost played 11 league games at Partizan ground so far with our team winning all of them, scoring 39 against 2.
Soumah and Kosovic won`t be available due to respective injuries while Radin is suspended due to accumulated cautions. On the other hand, returnee to Partizan Zoran Tosic and newcomers Antonov and Ozegovic are all available for selection.
– Tosic is ready. He`s got great desire and will to play. We are talking about serious player who was regular in Champions League. I know him for ten years now, back then he was just a kid now he is a top player and so important for our team. Players watch him doing stuff and all I can say is that we have a great new addition to the squad, says Djukic on Tosic.
-Nemanja Antonov is quality player too, Serbian youths international. We have a merry hell when it comes to left-backs with Antonov, Miletic and Monir. But, that allows are to rest players. All three of them are starting line-up options.
I don`t understand what`s the fuss about Ozegovic coming to Partizan? Crvena Zvezda also have players who were previously Partizan youths. There`s no need for such tension among fans and media. Ozegovic is our player who wants to prove himself and we`ll give him a chance. He`s got support from all of us and we want him to become great player here with us. There`s no tension in our squad, we are out there achieve results with calmness all around.
I would be pleased even with a 1-0 win against Mladost. Any win is important and we have a congested fixture list with Europa League coming around. We need wins, we need to feel positive sensations. Mladost is firm side, well assembled. I hope we`ll take this game as serious as it requires.
