Serbia's big four reach cup semis

BELGRADE - The top four teams in Serbia's first division reached the cup semi-finals on Wednesday after holders Partizan Belgrade beat Jagodina 2-1 away and city rivals Red Star defeated Spartak Subotica 3-2 at home.

Vojvodina Novi Sad advanced to the last four with a 1-0 home victory over Smederevo while OFK Belgrade scored two late goals inside a minute in a 2-0 win at Borac Cacak.

Champions Partizan looked in danger of making an early cup exit after falling behind but Lamine Diarra and strike partner Cleo struck either side of the interval to keep them on course to retain the domestic double.
