The boycott of Makedonija GjP and Sloga continued this round and they didn’t played their matches. Vardar drew with Renova, so the leaders failed to increase their lead and use Rabotnicki’s defeat away to Pelister.
Makedonija GjP and Sloga Jugomagnat continued boycotting the Football Federation of Macedonia in protest of the re-election of the president Hadzi-Risteski, so they didn’t played their matches today again. According to the regulations by FFM, it is expected the federation to suspend the clubs and expel them from all competitions.
Two very interesting matches were played this round. Leaders Renova played away to Vardar, while second placed Rabotnicki played away to Pelister. Young Marjan Altiparmakovski continued his good performances and scored his fourth goal for Pelister this season. His goal in the 80th minute was the only goal on this match, so Pelister made a big surprise and defeated Rabotnicki. In a rather slow match where it seemed like both teams tried to defend their goal first and then think of scoring into opponents’ net, Altiparmakovski managed to be the hero of the day once again. The 80th minute was played when Ljamcevski sent an excellent through ball behind the defense, Altiparmakovski avoided offside trap and together with Dimitrovski went in front of Rabotnicki’s keeper Naumovski. The scorer of the goal chose not to pass and full of confidence shot behind Naumovski and into the net. Dimitrovski had a chance earlier in the match to score with a header, but Naumovski blocked the shot. On the other side, Wandeir, Bozinovski and Savik had couple of half-occasions but none managed to threaten seriously.
The leaders Renova had a chance to increase their lead in front of Rabotnicki, but they won only a point away to Vardar. The guests had more chances and more of the ball possession and Besart Ibraimi in the 56th minute with a goal from a free kick from 30 meters took Renova in the lead. But Vardar didn’t give up and Bosko Stupic equalized in the 77th minute and set the final score.
The changes in Metalurg had an immediate impact on their results. Metalurg won in Kratovo against Sileks with a goal scored by Krste Velkoski in the second half.
Milano made a surprise in the first half and had the lead after the break with the goal by Adnan Limani. But the red cards for Beljulju and Fazliji made the task for Turnovo much easier, so they made a complete turnover in the second half with the goals by Miroslav Milosevic, Martin Šiškov and Dragan Georgiev.
