Second-placed Labunishta defeated Skopje and secured for them a historic play-off spot. Their win was not enough, but since Pelister lost in Debar by Korabi, Labunishta is now on unreachable 8 points away from the third place

Korabis’win over Pelister continues the tight battle for avoiding relegation. Teteks clinched important point away to relegated Goblen, while Gench Kalemler missed a chance to defeat Vlazrimi 77 away. They had a goal lead before conceding from a penalty kick five minutes from time. That goal brought tears in their eyes as it means relegation. The fact that Gench got booked 9 times says how nervous were they for this encounter.
