During the night the entire territory of Macedonia got covered in snow so the start of today’s match was brought into question until the kick-off time. The match went underway on a field covered in snow, and interesting, without a red ball.
Despite the snowy field both teams showed active play, but could not get into serious scoring chance. Rabotnichki managed to grad the win thanks to a lone goal scored in 11 minutes from time. Home keeper Marko Jovanovski had the ball and made a soft clearance that got intercepted by Kristijan Stojkoski who without hesitation fired from around 20 meters into the net.
