5 matches of Round 17 of the First League took place today. The match between Drita and Vardar was not played because of bad stadium conditions in Bogovinje. According to the propositions by FFM, the match is supposed to be played tomorrow at the same time, but only if the conditions improve. If not, FFM should set a new date.

In Skopje, Metalurg defeated Rabotnichki 2:1 and once again reminded everyone they are one of the top favorites for top places. 

Shkendija and Napredok shared the points in Tetovo, although the visitors were leading twice. Shkendija, however, managed to return from behind twice and in the end both teams got one point each.

In Shtip, Bregalnica and Horizont Turnovo also shared the points in a 1:1 match, with both goals coming from similar situations – after corner kicks.

On the other end of the table, Pelister defeated Teteks and left them to be rock bottom with only 9 points so far, while the Bitola based team now has 18. Sileks also won against Renova and although they are still in the dangerous zone, they must not be considered as relegated.
