Another remarkable result for relegation struggling Skopje who this team defeated Shkupi on the road.
Skopje is definitely rising from the dead. Bottom-placed on half-season, the popular Pirates are now officially back in the fight for avoiding relegation. Today’s win over Shkupi confirmed that their recent results are just a coincidence, but a great form.
Although both clubs are from the capital, the game was held in the city of Gostivar. Shkupi still can’t use its own Chair stadium due to the bad pitch, so they decided to host this game at this location.
Skopje took an early lead after just nine minutes of play thanks to Dario Desnikj. Ten minutes into the second half and the Pirates doubled the lead, this time through Togolese international Koffi Dosseh.
With this important 3 points Skopje is now just 5 points away from the safe zone. In the six matches of this second half-season, Skopje is still undefeated!
