Friendly: Litex – Shkendija 1:0

During the international break, Shkendija traveled to Bulgaria to face Litex in a friendly which the Macedonian club lost 1:0.

Litex was actually scheduled to have a league game this weekend against Kaliakra but the match was postponed by the Bulgarian football union due to numerous players being on youth national teams so Litex decided to play a friendly against Shkendija.  Litex won the friendly 1:0 but the score was not indicative of the dominance by the home team.  The Shkendija keeper was the only reason why the final score turned out to be respectable.  The lone goal of the game was scored by Svetoslav Todorov in the 82nd minute with a header from close range to hand Litex the deserving victory.

This was the third friendly this season that has occurred between the better teams of Macedonia and Bulgaria.  In the prior two friendlies, CSKA Sofia defeated both Vardar and Metalurg with the same score of 3:0 while in this latest friendly yesterday, Litex edged Shkendija 1:0.
