The biggest surprise this season probably occurred today. In Tetovo, Shkendija hosted Pobeda and lost planned three points. After a goalless first half, American international Chinazorm silenced the home fans with a 61st minute goal for the Prilep visitors. Shkendija was trying to equalize, but instead it was Tanushev that doubled the lead for Pobeda three minutes from time.
