The first macedonian team that started European voyage is Renova. They will return from Croatia with a 0-0 scoreline of the first leg from intertoto cup first round played today against Rijeka.
Renova had managed to pull out a draw against Rijeka in the first leg played today on Kantrida Stadium in Rijeka. According to the first informations that are coming from Rijeka, Renova played a good defensive match and managed to keep a cleen sheet. The hosts had couple of good chances but Renova were good in the back. Around 600 people were on the stadium and Renova was not without support as around 70 fans were on Kantrida to support their club. The match was played under rather hot weather that surely affected both teams a bit. In the middle of the second half the referee had even stopped the match for a while and players had a chance to refresh a bit and drink water. It is certainly an open result for Renova and everything will be decided in the 'second half' of this match. The return leg is scheduled for 28th of June on Gradski Stadium in Skopje. The more succesful team of this 2-legged match will get to play against Israeli Bnei Sakhnin.
