Partizan boss Gordan Petric after the game:

-Congrats to the boys. I think we were not good enough in the first half, we lacked calmness on the ball. Otherwise, I`m sure we would score at least one more goal. At the end, we created more with 10 men on the field. I rarely talk about individual performances but I have to tonight – Fejsa played a game in a right manner and I hope he`ll keep on doing it for the rest of the season. Praise goes to all other players but this is just the first leg and Sheriff players showed they can be quite dangerous. It will be hard at home but we hope we`ll go through to the next round. Boys need a bit of a rest now as we have another tough game on Sunday.
