Three in a row for Moreira’s Partizan

Title success for Portuguese

FK Partizan are celebrating the defence of their Serbian Superliga championship, having secured the title with one match left to play. Once again, Portuguese midfielder Almani Moreira has been a key figure in the team’s achievements.

A 3-0 victory for Partizan at OFK Belgrade, coupled with defeat for city rivals Red Star at home to BSK Borka, left the champions seven points clear at the top with 29 matches of the 30-game season played.

Partizan had taken a major step towards defending their title last weekend, when they beat Red Star in the Belgrade derby. Just one point separated the sides going into the match, but a 1-0 victory for Partizan gave them the crucial upper hand in the race for the championship.

Portuguese playmaker Moreira had promised the fans beforehand that the players would “leave blood on the pitch” in the derby, and the ex-Boavista man has once again been a strong influence on his team’s success, missing just five league matches all season.

Affectionately known as ‘Doctor Mo’ by the club’s fans, Moreira has won the title in each of his three seasons at the club since arriving in the summer of 2007. The 31-year-old has also been honoured with numerous awards during his time in Serbia, in recognition of his impact in Belgrade.
