MoreiraPortuguese forward Almani Moreira was among the goalscorers as Partizan ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Hajduk Kula on Saturday afternoon to go eleven points clear at the top of the Serbian Super League

The former Boavista playmaker opened the scoring on 38 minutes for the hosts to see Partizan go in at the break with a 1-0 lead. Top goalscorer Lamine Diarra and substitute Brana Ilic added second-half goals to wrap up the three points against mid-table Kula.

It was Moreira’s seventh league goal of the season and his 18th in total since moving to Serbia in 2007. The result sees the champions eleven points clear of second-placed Vojvodina and twelve clear of fierce rivals Red Star, who have one game in-hand on the top two, to be played at Rad Belgrade tomorrow afternoon.

The champions have 50 points from their 22 games in the league so far this campaign, and have conceded just nine goals as well as leading the scoring stats with 40 goals. With the Serbian league format played across 33 games, Partizan have 11 matches to see out their lead, while Moreira’s men travel to Hajduk Belgrade in the quarter-final of the Serbian Cup later this month.
