Both biggest promotion candidates Struga and Labunishta got hold to goalless draws by their opponents. The leaders traveled to Debar where they faced Korabi, while Labunishta hosted bottom-placed Teteks. However, Teteks will most probably be awarded a green table win as the hosts failed to field the necessary U19 player. Their youngest player was Azdren Mena who is born 01.05.1999 but the regulations say that a U19 player counts for those born after 15.06.1999.
The biggest surprise took place in the Avtokomanda neighborhood where Skopje got defeated by Goblen in front of its own fans. Goblen took a very early lead, but the hosts quickly equalized from the spot. After the break everything went downhill for the popular Pirates as first Jovanovski got sent off and later experienced Brnjarchevski scored an own goal.
Goblen players go jubilant after the win:
Without a winner ended the other two matches as well. No goals were score at Gostivar – Pelister, while Gench Kalemler was close to a ten men win at Vlazrimi 77. The visitors played with a red card since the 9th minute and still managed to take a lead in the 69th minute, but just nine minutes later the hosts leveled by converting a penalty.
