The home team had the first chance of the match in the fourth minute, after action on the right side and a return ball, Mićin shot from 10 meters over the crossbar, and then Matić also threatened after a free kick, with his head heading across the goal. Voša threatened for the first time in the eighth minute, after a quick action on the right side, Bjeković returned the ball, but Uroš Nikolić could not get a better grip on the ball and shot over the goal.

Voša took the lead in the 19th minute with a goal by Nikola Čumić, who took advantage of the poor reaction of the Napredak defense and accepted Nikolić’s pass, and hit the far corner diagonally from 15 meters for 1-0!

Just two minutes later, Vitas was late in shooting the ball, brought down Bastajić in the penalty area and made a penalty. Matić took the responsibility, but Carević masterfully saved his shot, as well as Putinčanin’s attempt, which ran onto the rebound!

Just as Vojvodina started to attack, Vojvodina almost scored the second goal, Čumić escaped again on the left side, but this time he shot past the post, from a similar situation from which he scored three minutes earlier.

Before the break, Napredak had two more dangerous situations in front of the goal, in the 28th minute, Krstić shot wide of the goal from a free kick, and 10 minutes later, Krstić also headed a shot past the post.

At the very end of the first half, the home team almost equalized from an unexpected situation when Busnić hit Bjeković, from whom the ball bounced and hit the post.

The beginning of the second part of the game was not so exciting, Napredak tried to attack, Vojvodina defended well and waited for the right chance to threaten the rival’s goal.

In the 61st minute, the guests welcomed such an opportunity, as Vojvodina took a 2-0 lead with a goal by Filip Malbašić. After the ball was taken 40 meters away, Uroš Nikolić made a great play past Malbašić, who came out alone in front of the goalkeeper Petrić and hit the net for 2-0!

That goal gave Vojvodina additional confidence, and coach Milan Rastavac further refreshed the team by introducing Veljko Simić and Vladimir Miletić instead of Malbašić and Topić. In the 81st minute, Napredak was left with one less player, as Đeković, as the last defensive player, brought down Veljko Simić, who used his freshness and speed to reach the ball before his keeper.

Vojvodina kept its advantage until the end and after four matches without a win won three points, so now it is sixth in the table with 26 points.
