Nigerian international, Umar Sadiq continued his sensational form in the Serbian Superliga on Friday night after he scored thrice for FK Partizan in their 6-2 win over Javor Ivanjica to move up to second on the log, reports. 


The AS Roma loanee, who has been amazing since making his switch to Belgrade, started his 12th league game of the campaign but it was the visitors who drew first blood when Nikola Petkovic benefited from a lapse in concentration to put his side 1-0 up on 2 minute. 


The Nigerian then leveled matters seven minutes later when his initial shot was parried by the goalkeeper before pouncing on the rebound for 1-1. 


Bojan Ostojic then made it 2-1 to Partizan on 15 minutes before Umar grabbed his brace to make it 3-1 on 37 minutes before both sides scored within four minutes to make scores 4-2 going into the half time break. 


The 22-year-old then completed his hat-trick just before the the hour mark to record his 10th league goal of the campaign before Filip Stevanovic grabbed his side’s 6th on 78th minute.
