The Serbian side lost against Sporting Braga (3-0 and 4-1) in the Champions League during this run. Since the defeats, Backa Toopla have won four successive league matches.

Žarko Lazetić’s side beat Železničar Pančevo 6-3 last time out. Ifet Đakovac scored twice and Petar Stanic, Dušan Cvetinović, Miloš Pantović and Miloš Vulić also struck.
