Ten-man Serbia hold off Faroe Islands

Faroe Islands 0-2 Serbia
Aleksandar Janković's side survived over half the game down to ten men and Rógvi Holm hitting the bar with the score 1-0 to claim a vital win.

Serbia kept the pressure on Denmark at the summit of UEFA European Under-21 Champions Group 4 despite enduring over half their meeting with the Faroe Islands down to ten men.

The visitors were leading through Filip Malbašić's 30th-minute effort when, deep into first-half added time, Luka Milivojević picked up his second booking in less than five minutes. The Faroes sensed an opportunity and midway through the second period Rógvi Holm rattled the crossbar – moments later they were two down, however, as Nemanja Gudelj converted from the spot to seal the points for Serbia. Aleksandar Janković's side stay level with Denmark at the top of the section; the Faroes remain at the bottom.
