Our cup run is over. The opponent’s lead from the first leg was too great. After our encouraging start, they scored the equaliser just before the break, which shut the gates to the semi-final for us.
Yesterday was full of bad news. During the game, we lost Mešanović to injury, whereas before the kick-off, Šuler and Obradović had been declared unavailable for selection.
