Vardar defeated Shkendija 1:2 in the derby of the round, Bregalnica finally won, Sileks celebrated against Metalurg.
Vardar confirmed their title ambitions for the season after they defeated their arch rivals and one of the top contenders for the title – Shkendija. Vardar visited Tetovo and managed to win the three points. The visitors took the lead through Filip Petkovski in the 6th minute and just 10 minutes later it was already 0:2 for Vardar when Grncharov was the fastest to react in the box. In the 24th minute Shkendija had their work cut out after Ivan Mitrov was shown a red card and sent off. The hosts did manage to pull one back through Imeri in the 74th minute but it was all they were able to do and Vardar noted a very important away win.
In the derby of the bottom, Bregalnica noted their second seasonal win. Rock-bottom Teteks visited Shtip and once again conceded 4 goals. A brace by Riste Markoski and goals by Velkovski and Ristovski were more than enough for Bregalnica to defeat their opponents and try to close the gap between them and 8th placed Renova. Teteks’ consolation goal was scored by Da Silva in the 90th minute.
Sileks managed to end their recent poor form by defeating Metalurg 2:1 in Kratovo. Nedeljković converted a penalty in the first half to open the scoreline, but Gjorgievski set the score straight in the second half. However, the hosts did not allow Metalurg to get away with a point and Duranski brought them the win in the 89th minute.
