Partizan is away to Crvena Zvezda on Thursday (6pm CET kick-off) for a Serbian Cup final fixture.
This is 8th consecutive Serbian Cup final for Partizan. Over that period, Partizan won 4 cup trophies, last one back in 2019.
Bibars Natcho (adductor) remains a doubt. Ricardo didn`t train yesterday so it makes him a slight doubt for tomorrow.
Partizan boss Aleksandar Stanojevic ahead of the cup final:
-We are happy and proud to present our club tomorrow in one great football show. Derby game is always something special. We cannot wait for it to start and eagerly await the opportunity to win one domestic trophy.
Cup trophy is not consolation prize. It`s still a trophy, Of course, it would have been easier for us to play at home. We know our opponents all too will and I don`t expect much tactical surprises.
We practiced penalty-kicks a lot this season and we think of not doing it. We are ready for everything but we don`t know if there`s going to be penalty shoot-out. These cup finals have been even encounters way too often; therefore you may expect penalties as an option.
Our players now have to pride in wearing this club`s jersey and I don`t want them to enter the game with kind of a negative aggression. Let us be proud and aware of the shirt and the club we represent.
