Voša took the lead in the next serious chance, since Yves Baraye scored in the 22nd minute.

Radnički had a third attempt in the 32nd minute. Marjanović shot powerfully from a distance, but not accurately enough to beat Carević.
Radnički had another shot in the goal range in the 37th minute, when Mesarović shot diagonally from the left side to the far corner, but Carević was again in the right place.

Radnički was the closest to the goal after only two minutes. Štulić’s shot was saved by Carević, Saša Marjanović ran into the rebound, but Đorđević blocked it, so the ball hit the post instead of the goal.

At the end of the match, Uroš Nikolić also got a chance, after an injury, and in the 82nd minute he scored from the first contact with the ball for 3-0. Nikolić received the ball on the edge of the penalty area and hit the left corner for the unattainable advantage of the Old Lady.
Vojvodina thus achieved its fourth victory this season and occupies third place in the table with 16 points.
