FK Sarajevo lifted the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Cup for the fifth time following a 5-1 aggregate defeat of NK Čelik Zenica.

Sarajevo won the first leg 2-0 in Zenica, with the second instalment finally played on Friday having twice been postponed due to flooding. Sarajevo recorded a 3-1 home victory courtesy of goals from Krste Velkoski, Bojan Puzigaća and Nemanja Bilbija, Jasmin Mešanović on the mark for Čelik.

"I am delighted with this success. We have shown that we are the best in this competition because we eliminated the best clubs: FK Željezničar and HŠK Zrinjski," said Sarajevo coach Dženan Uščuplić. "I am particularly happy because I also won the cup as a player."

Sarajevo overcame Željezničar on away goals in the quarter-finals before knocking out Premier League champions Zrinjski in the last four.
