The most interesting match of Round 2 took place in the capital where Skopje hosted Pobeda. The teams would settle for one point in a back-and-forth 3:3 draw. The game also saw a total 6 yellow cards with the visitors claiming most of them, so it had a little but of everything.

Promotion candidates Makedonija GjP became the lone team with the maximum points this season. They made it two wins out of two by beating Gorno Lisiche 2:1. Meanwhile, their opponent has racked up back-to-back losses. Gorno Lisiche and Kozhuf Miravci are the only two teams without a point in the second division. The Miravci based team got there by losing 2:0 to Vlazrimi 77.


Pelister played another 1:1 draw in their first scheduled home game. Of course, their home is not Bitola this season since the stadium in that city is under construction. Instead, their home venue is based in Prilep. Pelister would play a 1:1 draw against Gostivar, needing a late goal to salvage a point. That means Pelister has opened the new campaign with two draws.



Finally, the last game saw Teteks take on Ljubanci. Although Teteks played with an extra man for more than 40 minutes, when Ljubanci defender Stojan Stojchevski was shown a red card, they could not take advantage. Instead, it was Ljubanci who opened the scoring at the hour mark when former national team player Filip Despotovski scored an own goal. Teteks did manage to equalize four minutes later through substitute Andrian Chavoli, but they could not get another goal.
