Vardar Skopje – Pelister Bitola 3:0 (0:0)
55' 59' 66' Jancevski
The biggest Macedonian derby between the old rivals Vardar and Pelister was played today on Gradski in Skopje and after the complete domination, the hosts defeated Pelister with the hat-trick scored by Boban Jancevski. In the first half Vardar made pressure on Pelister's goal but no serious chance was created and Pelister's defence was always in front of Vardar's strikers. Towards the end of the first half Jancevski had the most serious oportunity and after a cross from the left side he volleyed just over the goal. In the last minute, Musa Ali scored a goal but it was dissalowed because of an offside.
Finally in the 2nd half Vardar's efforts ended with success. Boban Jancevski was the hero of the match by destroying Pelister's defence and scoring the hat-trick with the goals in the 55th, 59th and 66th minute. The tempo of the match went down after Vardar's goals and Pelister unsuccessfully tried to lower the defeat. They failed to create any serious chance on Pacovski's goal and Vardar completely deserved the big 3:0 win over one of their biggest rivals.
