A snowy field in Bitola welcomed the two most famous Macedonian teams in what is known as the biggest footballing derby in this country of all times. After only 9 minutes of play Vardar took the lead through Brazilian trequartista Juan Felipe who ended Pelister's incredibly run of 7 league games without conceding a goal. Only two minutes later the home ultras hit the second assistant Dejan Kostadinov with a snowball right in the head which lead to the match being interrupted for exactly 32 minutes.

Pelister failed to score an equalizer and eventually lost game. Meanwhile, there was another interruption in the second half, but a much shorter as it was due to offensive chant towards the main referee. The home crowd was very unsatisfied with how Stavrev lead the game. Its the first defeat for Pelister after the Round 9 loss to Shkendija at this very same venue.
