Montenegro midfielder Mirko Ivanic scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser to secure BATE Borisov their 12th consecutive Belarusian title following a 3-3 draw at Gorodeya on Sunday.

The result left BATE equal on 68 points with Dynamo Minsk, who beat Vitebsk 4-1, but the Borisov club claimed their 14th league title due to a better head-to-head record with the capital city outfit.

Shakhter Soligorsk, who suffered a 3-1 defeat at Neman Grodno, finished third, three points behind the leading duo.
