It was as expected in Nis last night – firm and nervy until the very end.
Partizan was trailing two-nil down early in the second half but goals from Nemanja Nikolic and NR Miletic cancelled Radnicki lead for a 2-2 draw.
Miletic and Nikolic spoke to Partizan website after the game:
– We knew it was going to be hard. In the first half we failed to convert our opportunities and they scored from single shot on target. Unfortunately, second half started like a nightmare but we believed we can come back as we were better side overall. Great goal from Nikolic who showed his quality and pushed us forward. Soon after, I seized my opportunity for an equalizer, said NR Miletic.
– I agree with Miletic this was one really hard game and we prepared for it properly as we knew how demanding it was going to be. We were a bit sleepy and Radnicki seized on it scoring two goals. Besides that, they didn`t have some great opportunities. I`m pleased we showed character and desire after being two-nil down. Unfortunately, we failed to win and we can`t be pleased with final score. We only started pushing forward after we conceded second goal, said Nikolic.
Next weekend, Partizan is home to Vozdovac.
