Partizan Belgrade win 21st league title

Topics

BELGRADE - Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade retained their title on Saturday without kicking a ball after closest rivals Vojvodina Novi Sad drew 0-0 at home to fourth-placed Javor Ivanjica. Partizan have 65 points from 27 matches, 15 more than Vojvodina, who have five games left but cannot overhaul the champions who have a better head-to-head record, the decisive factor if two sides finish level on points. Partizan, who clinched their 21st league title and can also repeat last season's double after reaching the cup semi-finals, have six games left and host OFK Belgrade on Sunday.
