Partizan kicks-off UEFA Europa Conference League group stage with an away encounter to Czechs Slovacko (Thursday, 6.45pm CET kick-off).
In other UEFA ECL Group D match, OGC Nice will host FC Koln.
Danilo Pantic, Andrija Pavlovic and Aleksandar Lutovac remain sidelined. Queensy Menig (hamstring) is the latest casualty but he is expected to be back soon. Aleksandar Filipovic (calf) is back in contention.
Partizan boss Gordan Petric on Slovacko away:
-If we achieve good result against Slovacko, it will be easier further on. First group game is extremely important, especially as play against the team from pot four. We were in pot one and it`s logical that Czechs think about us in a particular way. I hope my team gained routine after several positive results and we also hope they`ll look fresh away to Slovacko. This game will show us where we want to go.
Defensive midfielder Kristijan Belic on upcoming game:
-We are getting ready for Slovacko as if for any other game. They played two or three big games in Czech league and didn`t do well. We looked at those matches and Slovacko is a team playing direct football game but if we do our job properly we can hope for a win. Partizan is a club where it`s all about success and that`s what we are interested in away to Slovacko. We want to do our best, meet the bosses` demands and get the result desired.
