“I do not feel any pressure and I just have to continue working to improve performance and develop the team's capabilities in scoring in order to return to the path of victories. Our team is still good in the leagu, and we will make all our efforts to advance in the standings. The next stage is of great importance for us. Every match is like a final and we have to win it in order to maintain the current position,”said Nebojsa.

We will be more focused against Al Khor, and we will work to not repeat the mistakes that we made during the previous match, and our goal will be to obtain the three points while providing the best level in the match.
