Partizan win fourth Serbian title in a row

Aleksandar Stanojević's FK Partizan have made history in Serbia by becoming the first club to win four successive league titles, claiming their 23rd crown over all with a 1-1 draw at FK Metalac.

A 1-1 draw at FK Metalac was enough for FK Partizan to secure their 23rd league title, leaving them six points clear of FK Crvena zvezda with one round of the Serbian season to go.

Stefan Babović broke the deadlock for Partizan just after the break, but while Chad striker Misdongarde Betolngar equalised, it did not affect the final outcome, since the only sides who could theoretically deny the Black-and-Whites also drew: FK Vojvodina's game at FK Smederevo ended goalless while Crvena zvezda were held 2-2 at home by FK Spartak Zlatibor voda.

Aleksandar Stanojević's side have made Serbian history by becoming the first team to claim the crown for four seasons in succession. They have also completed a domestic double, having got the better of Vojvodina in the Serbian Cup final. The final round of Super League fixtures will be played on Sunday, when Partizan host FK Sloboda Sevojno.
