FK Partizan won their 20th league title after a 1-0 win at FK Napredak on the final day of the season left them five points clear of last season's champions and city rivals FK Crvena Zvezda, who could only manage a 1-1 draw at FK Hajduk Kula.
Senegalese striker Lamine Diarra scored the only goal for Partizan when he bundled the ball over the line midway through the second half after Djordje Lazić burst down the right and drove a low cross into the box. Needing only a draw to secure the title, Partizan held on comfortably in the closing stages. In Kula, Igor Burzanović gave Crvena Zvezda a 36th-minute lead but, knowing Partizan were winning, faded and conceded a Nikola Komazeć equaliser late on. Partizan, who completed the domestic double after winning the Serbian Cup earlier this month, will enter the UEFA Champions League at the second qualifying round next season while Crvena Zvezda, FK Vojvodina and cup finalists FK Zemun will enter the UEFA Cup first qualifying round.
