Spare weekend suits Serbia

The Football Association of Serbia and Montenegro will play the 21st round of top-flight matches this weekend.

The Football Association of Serbia and Montenegro has decided that league games will be played this weekend following the postponement of the country's UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying tie against Wales.

Change of plan
The 21st round of matches in the domestic top flight, the Prva savezna liga, will now take place on Sunday after the Group 9 tie against Wales in Belgrade, due to be played next Wednesday, 2 April, was moved back to 20 August for security reasons.

State of emergency
The rearranged league games had originally been called off when the country's sporting calendar was suspended following the assassination of prime minister Zoran Djindjic on 12 March. With Serbia and Montenegro still in a state of emergency, some of the weekend matches could take place behind closed doors.
