Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic after the game:

-We failed to double the lead earlier on and we had a lot of opportunities to do so. I`m glad Lazar Pavlovic scored, he could have scored hat-trick in total.

We started the game well despite shuffling the pack with six changes compared to cup semi. However, midweek cup game is not an excuse. We simply failed to score when it was important and visitors punished us with a single shot on target for a late drama.
