The Serbian champions got off to a bright start after Mirko Ivanic opened the scoring after 37 minutes. Ivanic finished off a brilliant move after connecting to a Cherif Ndiaye pass.

Uros Spajic doubled the lead in the 65th minute after smashing home from an In-Beom Hwang assist.

However, Vojvodina pulled one back late in the game through Aleksa Vukanovic.

Bukari was replaced in the 74th minute by Gabonese forward Guelor Kanga, as reported by Sofascore.

The Ghana international has been an integral part of the team since joining them from KAA Gent in the summer of 2022.

The Black Stars forward scored ten goals across all competitions for Red Star Belgrade this season, per Transfermarkt.
