The first round of the new season in the Macedonian Cup is finally completed. The match involving holders Shkendija was twice postponed, first because of their Europa League play-off encounter against Rosenborg and most recently because many of their players were on national team duties.

Eventually the match took place in Gevgelija where Shkendija celebrated with two goals scored in the opening 45 minutes.
