have been crowned as champions of the 2015/16 , after defeating ASM Oran 3-0 at the Stade Omar Hamadi on Saturday.

The capital club needed to at least match second-placed JS Saoura’s result to clinch the title with three rounds to go, seeing as the latter side have the head-to-head advantage (1-1 in Méridja, 1-2 in Algiers).

Oussama Darfalou, Mokhtar Benmoussa and Mohamed Seguer were the scorers in a straightforward win for USM Alger.

Unfortunately for the visitors, the loss means that their relegation to the Ligue 2 is now a certainty.

It is worth noting that USM Alger managed to win the league title despite losing star man Youcef Belaili to an eight-year ban at the start of the season.

Nevertheless, manager Miloud Hamdi has done brilliantly to coerce top performances from veteran striker Mohamed Seguer; the 30-year-old scored 9 times to help his side build an unassailable lead at the top of the standings.
