Partizan assistant coach Branko Vukasinovic after the game:

-We played demanding game against one strong opponent who had pace, tactical and technical quality on the day. The game was unfolding as we expected and we scored the goal the way we wanted – when we found a bit of space after a quick attack, only that we didn`t expect Urosevic to finish the way he did, a great goal. Sadly, we failed to keep our lead but we cannot be unhappy about this, this is a step forward for all of us.

This is the first time we played 3-5-2 formation and we were aware of all pluses and minuses this formation brings in regard to our opponents. We had very short time to practice it with the players we were able to field. We knew Gent will dominate possession and we were ready for them to create opportunities – they are one of the top teams regarding chances created in the Belgian league. But, we were ready to battle their good sides of the game – one-on-one play, flank balls and transition play…On the other hand, we waited for our opportunities and Natcho hit the post, Jojic had a clear-cut opportunity, Menig was there too. But, it was all expected.

As we won quality opponents in Conference League qualifiers, it`s expected from us to go through to the next round. We did won Flora and Anorthosis and we picked up a point tonight. If we qualify for the last 32 of the competition, we will play even more demanding game compared to this one today. We live and work for it, we want to lock horns with a team from, let`s say, top five European leagues.
