Pobeda shocked Vardar, Shkupi held Shkendija in Tetovo, Pelister celebrated at Makedonija, thriller game in Shtip between Bregalnica and Sileks.
Leaders Vardar were stunned by relegation strugllers Pobeda on the road. The holders had a 1:0 lead with the goal of captain Grncharov, but a brace by Cvetanoski in the last 15 minutes forced the champions to head home defeated.
Second-placed Shkendija failed to seize the occasion and reduce the difference as they were held to a goalless draw at home by Shkupi. This is the third game this season between the two in which Shkendija fails not just to beat Shkupi but even to score a goal against them. In the previous two games Shkupi celebrated a 1:0 win and then secured another 0:0 draw.
A very exiting match was played in Shtip between Bregalnica and Sileks who scored 3 goals each. The hosts were expecting 3 points from this game, but once again failed to win. After a 1:1 score on half-time the Blues took the lead before Sileks making a total come back. Defender Stojanov was the hero of the home team with an equalizer in the injury time.
Pelister took the 3 points in the road game against Makedonija in Skopje. The two Brazilian internationals, Lucas Cardoso and Fernando Silva were the ones who scored for this valuable win to increase the difference between Pelister and rabotnichki to 3 points as the two clubs are fighting for the 3rd place.
The match that opened this round was played yesterday between Rabotnichki and Renova and ended in a boring goalless draw.
