11 Oktomvri recorded a 2:1 victory over Vardar today in the return leg but it wasn’t enough as Vardar won the first leg 2:0 and advanced to the semi-finals of the Macedonian Cup by winning 3:2 on aggregate.  Filip Petrov scored the lone goal for Vardar in the 76th minute while the goalscorers for 11 Oktomvri were Aleksandar Veljanovski in the 57th minute and Blagoja Gesoski in the 85th minute from a penalty.

In Stip, Bregalnica has been in good form in league play over the past month but could not overcome the 3:1 deficit from the first leg of the domestic cup against Horizont Turnovo so they were eliminated from the competition.  The game today ended 0:0 and since Horizont Turnovo won the first game 3:1, they advanced to the semi-finals of the Macedonian Cup.

In the other two matchups, Renova thumped Teteks 9:2 on aggregate over the two games to easily advance to the semi-finals.  The return leg was actually played yesterday and Renova won 3:2 after winning the first leg 6:0.  The fourth team in the semi-finals will likely be Rabotnicki.  However, the return leg against Napredok was moved back to 16 November due to Rabotnicki missing a lot of players on international duty with the U21 and U19 national teams.  Therefore, FFM decided to move the game back where Rabotnicki will be defending a 4:1 lead from the first leg.
