Coach Igor Angelovski opted to start with Dimitrievski at the goal, Ristevski, Velkovski and Zajkov in the back line, Alioski, Kostadinov, Nikolov and Ristovski in the midfield, Pandev and Trichkovski behind striker Nestorovski.
The opening half passes with pretty much cautions from both sides with the play being in the midfield. Even no team managed to hit the target even once.
Macedonia had a couple of chances in the last minutes of the first 45 minutes, both coming after corner kicks. First Velkovski’s header was blocked into another corner from which Pandev came closest to scoring, but his header passed near the left bar.
Two good chances right after the break on both sides. First Dimitrievski denied Daushvili who fired from the edge of the box, while late Nikov sent a great shot from 20 meters, but Loria was careful.
In the 67th minute keeper Dimitrievski played with hand outside the box and the Polish referee sent him off.
The visitors needed six minute to score on a player advantage. Kvaratskhelia dribbled past two Macedonians and fired in the back of the net.
Once again after Tallinn the Macedonians had to trail a negative score. This time it was a penalty kick that brought the equalizer. Zajkov was brought down in the box in the 3rd injury minute and Alioski successfully converted the penalty.
Since Estonia and Armenia also played a 1:1 draw in the other match in our group, Round 4 did not bring changes on the standings.
