After 2,5 years Rabotnichki defeated Vardar, Bregalnica hugely disappointed in their return to Shtip, Pelister great again, Shkendija easy in Gjorche Petrov, while Renova and Sileks shared the points.
The old derby of Skopje took place at the National Arena Philip II of Macedon, a derby that dates back since 1951 when Vardar and Rabotnichki first met in the Yugoslav Second League. Rabotnichki was without a win against Vardar for 10 games in a row, 9 league games and 1 super cup game with the last win being in the end of the 2013/14 season. Vardar’s keeper Filip Gachevski twice made mistakes which happened to be crucial as Rabotnichki scored on those occasions. To make his worst day ever, Gachevski even gave Rabotnichki a penalty kick for a final defeat of 3:0. This is the first defeat for holders Vardar this season.
Bregalnica eventually came back to play in its hometown of Shtip as the renovation works on the stadium ended. The home fans, hungry for football, filled the stadium waiting for a win of their beloved team who is bottom-placed. The Blues had the possession, but Pobeda broke the dead lock from their first attemp at the home goal. It was Sharkoski who with a great shot in the 18th minute silenced the crowd.
After just 8 minutes into second half Bregalnica finally equalized. Huge mistake by visiting keeper Vanche Manchevski who wanted to dribble but forgot the ball allowing Muratović an easy goal. When everyone thought that Bregalnica would make a turn around, just two minutes later Sharkoski shocked the home crowd once again. In the 72nd minute Geshoski made it clear that Pobeda will take the 3 points.
Shkendija had an easy task in the road game against Makedonija GjP. Ibraimi and Hasani sent Shkendija with a 2:0 lead on the break, while later Polozhani and Hasani again set the final score of 4:0.
Pelister confirmed the great form with a hiome win over Shkupi. Two goals in each half were enough to defeat the visitors from Skopje who are out of form. This is the 5th win for Pelister in the last 6 games.
Renova and Sileks played an interesting game that ended in a 2:2 draw. Sileks twice was taking the lead, but the home side won a point with a penalty goal deep into the injury time.
