Short of almost a dozen of players away on intl. duty, as well skipper Ilic his assistant Smiljanic and Ninkovic, rest of the squad locked horns versus Rad in a friendly played inZemuneloSC.
Visitors showed more determination and great fighting spirit to win it with a brace fromSlavko Perovic.
Twobreaks from Luka early in the game made us believe Partizan will win yet another friendly in a row butSlavko Perovic scored an opener for visitors on 17 beating Ostojic and Tomasevic with an edge of the box drive into the far corner of the Petrovic`s net.
Perovic was quite in a good mood for this one – he beat Partizan defence on 37 again, including Partizan keeper, but his weak shot into the empty net was cleared off goalline.
Before the break, Partizan threatened Rad twice.Pauljevic set up a goal opportunity for Kojic on 35, Knezevic did the same for Babic later on, but both shot off target.
Marko Nikolic`s charges had more possession in a second half and managed to double the lead on 66 after a set-piece and ball bouncing all the way to Partizan goalline where Perovic made a determine dive to secure Rad`s 2-0 lead.
This was enough for a deserved win although today Partizan skipper Sasa Markovic and Nemanja Radonjic had two more goal attempts for home side before the end of the game.
It`s worth mentioning that this was a Partizan debut for recently recovered 17-year old Nemanja Radonjic while on the other side, on 67, Marko Nikolic introduced young Sasa Varga, son of Partizan assistant coach Zvonko Varga.
