Italy, Campionato Primavera, Cesena Primavera – Parma Primavera 1:3
Stefan Ristovski started at RB and played the entire game for the Parma Primavera team while his teammate Agron Bufi was among the 19 players called up for this game but teams are only allowed to dress 18 players and Bufi was the odd man out so he didn’t dress for the Parma Primavera team.

Germany, 1.Bundesliga, Stuttgart – Mainz 05 1:0
Nikolce Noveski played all 90 minutes for Mainz who suffered a tough loss as the only goal of the game was scored by Stuttgart striker Martin Harnik in the 79th minute.  On the goal by Stuttgart, Noveski slipped which allowed his marker to get around him but the real culprit for Mainz was Radoslav Zabavník who should have cleared the ball to avert the danger but he tried to play the ball which turned out to be a big mistake as his bad first touch gifted Harnik an easy goal from close range as Stuttgart got a much needed three points as they are near the bottom of the standings.  This was the 18th round in the Bundesliga and Mainz is the only team that has not drawn a game up to this point as they have eleven victories and seven defeats.
