Macedonian First League – Round 8

altIn the duel between the current cup title holder Rabotnicki and reigning champion Makedonija the points were shared with 1:1. Sileks was finally defeated, and Metalurg noted their first win this season. Pelister defeated Teteks, while Renova and Vardar as expected, celebrated easy wins over Sloga and Milano.

The “big” derby match between probably the best two teams in Macedonia, Rabotnicki and Makedonija, the teams who currently hold the cup and league titles, attracted only 300 fans on the National arena Philip II of Macedon. Luckily, the performance by the players on the pitch was not that poor as the number of fans, so the Macedonian football fans who stayed at home and watched the match on TV, saw an interesting match with two goals, many chances, many yellow and one red card.

Pelister outplayed Teteks and with the two goals by Pelister’s best striker Dimitrovski and one by the young  Altiparmakovski they deserved the victory. Redzepi only lowered the Pelister’s lead but that was all Teteks were able to do today in Bitola.
As expected, Vardar had an easy task in Kumanovo today. Idrizi and Petrov scored twice for Vardar’s win that took them up on the 8th position, just above the relegation play-out zone.
Horizont proved to be very powerful on their ground in Turnovo as with the goals by the captain Tenekedziev and Andonov, they managed to be the first team that defeated Sileks this season after eight played rounds.
Metalurg’s coach Jovanovski managed to keep his position as his team finally won this season. Stefanović and Velkoski scored for Metalurg and the only goal for Pobeda was scored by Marković.
Renova got closer on only one point behind leaders Rabotnicki after the 3:1 win today over Sloga. Boban Jancevski scored two header goals and Kalaba scored an own goal, while Idrizi was the scorer for Sloga.
