Italy, Serie A, Parma – Inter

Postponed because of snow so Goran Pandev and Inter did not have a game.  The game has been re-scheduled for February 10th.

Germany, 1. Bundesliga, Bayern Munich – Mainz 3:0
Nikolce Noveski played all 90 minutes for Mainz who played Bayern tough in the first half but Bayern dominated the 2nd half as they scored three goals.  The conditions were tough in the 2nd half because it was snowing but it was a deserved victory for Bayern.

Germany, 1. Bundesliga, Eintracht Frankfurt – Koln 1:2
Oka Nikolov played all 90 minutes for the home team who would have moved up to 6th in the German Bundesliga with a win or a draw but they suffered a narrow loss when Marco Russ scored an own goal in the 84th minute to give Koln the 2:1 lead and they went on to win by the same score. Aleksandar Vasoski remains out with a knee injury.

Germany, 1. Bundesliga, Schalke 04 – Hoffenheim 2:0
Besart Ibraimi was not among the 18 players called up by Schalke.  The manager of Schalke mentioned that Ibraimi could be used if needed but was mainly a signing for the future.

Netherlands, Eredivisie, Den Haag – Heerenveen 2:1
Goran Popov started for Heerenveen who took the lead in the 30th minute but a Heerenveen player received a red card in the 45th minute and that had a big effect on the game.  Heerenveen kept their slim 1:0 until the 78th minute when Den Haag equalized and two minutes later Den Haag took the lead and they held on to win 2:1.  Goran Popov received a yellow card in the 80th minute and played all 90 minutes.

France, Ligue 1, Auxerre – Saint Etienne 1:0
Robert Popov was not called up by Auxerre.  Mirsad Jonuz gave Popov a chance in the last two friendlies but he made it clear to Popov that if he doesn’t play regularly, then he won’t get another chance and up to this point, he has not played a single minute for Auxerre.

England, League Championship, Preston North End – Ipswich Town 2:0
Velice Sumulikoski was again not even on the bench for Preston.  Sumulikoski would have been motivated for this game as Ipswich was his former team before he joined Preston North End.

Belgium, Jupiler League, Germinal Beerschot – Anderlecht 0:5
Tome Pacovski and Germinal Beerschot were humiliated at home by the current leaders in the Belgian League.  It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Pacovski but his defenders have not helped him out much.

Belgium, Jupiler League, Mechelen – Cercle Brugge 1:2
Igor Gjuzelov started on the bench for Cercle before he came on in the 89th minute replacing Jelle Vossen.

Belgium, EXQI League, Mons – Lierse 1:1
Nderim Nedzipi did not play for the visitors who needed a goal in the 87th minute to secure a point.  Lierse remains 1st in the Belgian Second Division.

Cyprus, Protathlima A’Katigopias, AE Paphos – Anorthosis Famagusta 0:2
Jane Nikoloski started for Paphos before he had to come out in the 57th minute because of an injury.  He allowed two goals in the 43rd and 55th minute before his injury.   

Cyprus, Protathlima A’Katigopias, Ethnikos Achnas – APOEL
Postponed so this game affected many Macedonians.  Ethnikos have three Macedonians on their team in Edin Nuredinoski, Vance Sikov, and Slavco Georgievski while APOEL has Boban Grncarov.

Cyprus, Protathlima A’Katigopias, AEL – APOP Kinyras 2:0
