The coach of Vojvodina, Slavoljub Đorđević, congratulated his team on placing in the third round of qualifications for the Conference League.
Tonight, the Old Lady beat Panevezys 1-0 in front of her fans at the Karađorđe stadium and secured a placement in the next round with a total of 2-0, where the Austrian LASK will be waiting for her.
– I want to congratulate the guys on their placement in the next round and I want to thank the fans for their wonderful support. Without them, we would not have the strength to go further today. As for the match itself, I said before the match that it is very difficult to play two European matches, between Red Star and Partizan. Consumption is really high, it can be seen that the team from Lithuania is in a competitive rhythm, that they are fresher and more rested. Nobody can blame my boys for anything, to say that they did not want to fight, I think that the result is a reward from God and I wish them all the best from the bottom of my heart – said Slavoljub Đorđević.
Panevezys was a great rival in this duel, but Voša celebrated in both matches, and Đorđević believes that she deserved it with – her character.
– The character of these guys was crucial. I have already said that it is a huge expense to play two derbies and two European games in a row, and that is why this passage is even bigger for us. We will continue to fight, for the club and for the fans – Đorđević emphasized.
The next rival in the qualifications is LASK, but Đorđević wants to focus on the match with Mladost from Lučani beforehand.
– We will not think about LASK yet, because we will play with Lučani in two days. I can only say that our biggest plus is that we play at Karađorđe. In every other variant, we would be really weakened – Slavoljub Đorđević concluded.
Vojvodina will host LASK next Thursday, the kick-off of the match will be known later, while in the Serbian Super League, it will play against Mladost on Sunday at 6:55 p.m.
