Nightmare Sunday for Shkendija. The Red&Black can’t remember when was the last time that they were humiliated so badly at their own stadium. It isn’t the first time for Bregalnica Shtip to beat Shkendija in Tetovo, but this win was very different. One lad became hero today, Ivan Mitrov who’s hat-trick stunned the home fans and gave his Bregalnica 3:0 win.

Tittle holders Vardar celebrated over Renova with the same result, but in Skopje. Defender Zlatko Tanevski and Nigerian midfielder Osa Guobadia in just two minutes (24th and 26th) brought Vardar a 2:0 lead, while Stjepanovikj cemented the win in the second half.

Dejan Blazhevski brought Turnovo the lead at Zhelezarnica some 10 minutes into the second half, but Metalurg managed to tie the score through Hristijan Dimoski in the 70th minute. No further goals were scored so the two teams shared the points meaning that Turnovo gave the table top to Vardar.

Sileks expected a home win over Napredok, but the visitors from Kichevo showed better determination and took the 3 points. Marko Simonovski opened the scoreline early in the 6th minute with Dejan Cvetanovski doubling the lead after 15 minutes of play in the second half. With this win Napredok now took over the 4th place on the table, one point less than the 3rd place that leads into the qualifications for the Europa League.
