Nigerian international, Sadiq Umar opened his season’s account in style as he scored twice to help FK Partizan to a comfortable 4-0 thrashing of visitors FK Javor Ivanjica, AOIFootball.com.
With one win and a loss in their opening two league fixtures of the campaign, the hosts were desperate to record their second win of the season, with Sadiq Umar also looking for his first league goal despite having a fantastic preseason.
The wait however lasted for just 13 minutes as the former Dream Team striker made the most of a defensive lapse to net his debut goal of the season and put his side 1-0 up.
Umar then doubled his side’s lead five minutes later in a similar fashion, reacting quickest to a drop ball by the goalkeeper to back-heel it into an empty net to make it 2-0.
Seydouba Soumah then made it 3-0 before the half time whistle with Japanese winger Takuma Asano completing the scoring 14 minute from time to seal a comfortable 4-0 win.
The win now sees Partizan move up to 7th on the log with 6 points from a possible 9, three behind defending Champions Crvena Zvezda who are yet to drop a single point this campaign.
