Match Preview: FK Partizan vs CSKA Moscow

In last match Partizan took lead of 2-0 in 7th minute after which CSKA scored two goals until Partizan took another lead and finished with that goal.

Another important win for Partizan as they secured at least 3rd position in Group A. The commitment they showed in this match proved how important this was for them. Many young talents were subs on this match and experienced players had to do job. The slight favorites made a good job and won it smoothly.

In this forth round match in Group A of Champions League, we saw some nice moves more from Partizan players than CSKA. Stadium was sold out and fans were ready for spectacular match that would bring Partizan to European spring. Even Petar Grbic and Petar Skuletic scored goals, player of the match was Ognjen Vranjes thanks to his commitment to the defense.

Match Summary:

CSKA Moscow started strongly and made 7 shots in only 15 minutes and gave Partizan fans to be scared. But as the time was going we saw more safe play by Partizan and with couple of big chances until they scored in 43rd minute, goal by Petar Grbic. Only minutes later in 45+2 minute Petar Skuletic scored fantastic header in upper right corner of goal and gave his teammates and fans to cheer and hope it finishes like this.

With this victory Partizan is 3rd in Group 3 points less than second placed Manchester City. At the end FK Partiza 2, CSKA Moscow 0

Partizan plays next against Real Madrid in Belgrade on Stadion FK Partizan. Last match finished 2-0 for Real Madrid.
A nice win against CSKA and good luck against RM bud.

Match preview: FK Partizan vs Real Madrid C.F.

Fifth round of Champions League Group A between Partizan Belgrade and Real Madrid. In their last match Real Madrid easily won with 2-0 after goals of Isco and Luka Modric but tonight absolutely different stadium.

Real Madrid will be favorites again in this match and are expected to win without any problems. Karim Benzema will be missing due to suspension. Partizan have already secured at least 3rd position but will look to finish in first 2.

As they played against strongest team in Europe they should not have any pressure and we should expect better match than we watched last time.

Potential squads:

FK Partizan: Lukac, Vulicevic, Vranjes, Stankovic, Volkov, Alberto, Drincic, Lazovic, Ilic, Skuletic, Ewandro

Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Illaramendi, Khedira, Kroos, Ronaldo, Rodriguez, Hernandez
-walkinshaw- Yeah pretty nice wins and important and thanks for wishing me luck.
Good luck against Madrid mate, you'll need it for sure! A nice win against CSKA too :)

Real Madrid wins but played poor!

FK Partizan 0-1 Real Madrid C.F.

Sergio Ramos 2nd minute

As both teams have secured their goals, this match showed us a goal-friendly match with only one goal by Sergio Ramos for Real Madrid but also we seen great defensive skills by Milan Lukac after defending penalty to James Rodriguez and whole defense during match as Real Madrid had 23 shots.

We saw a stadium full of Partizan fans and only two and three hundred fans of Manchester City bat stadium was sold out. Even Partizan lost, their fans will be happy after not allowing more than one goal to current holders of Champions League Real Madrid. At this stage nearly everything is cleared in Group A as Real Madrid will be 1st in Group and CSKA will be last, only thing left is to see who will finish second, Manchester City or Partizan as second Manchester has 10 points and Partizan has 7, so if Partizan wins they go through.

Match Summary:

Real Madrid started this match in strong mood. In their third attack on this match Sergio Ramos scored a header on near post and got his team in lead after only two minutes of play. Not long from first goal, Sasa Ilic made mistake and pushed Cristiano Ronaldo in penalty area which Mr. Massa saw as penalty and gave to Real Madrid. James Rodriguez took to shoot but Milan Lukac saved with big confidence. In rest of first half we could see on every five shots of Real Madrid one for Partizan and that's how it finished with 23 shots by Real Madrid and only 7 shots by Partizan. So, after final whistle the result was unchanged from second minute of match, Partizan zero, Real Madrid 1.

Last match Partizan plays against Manchester City, the match that will be important to both teams as it is direct duel for second place in Group A.
Unlucky against Madrid! Always was a mountain to climb to beat them but well done on limitating the score :)
