Partizan friendly

On this day in 1995, Villa were 2-0 winners over Partizan Belgrade in a pre-season friendly at Villa Park.

The match was arranged as part of the deal which brought Serbian striker Savo Milosevic to Villa from Belgrade for a club record £3.5m that summer. 

First-half goals from Gary Charles and Dwight Yorke gave Villa victory in a match watched by 12,177.
