Pobeda fell short in its bid to win back-to-back games. In front of their home fans in Prilep, Pobeda could only muster a 1:1 draw against Vlazrimi 77. Lorenco Nikolovski would score the opening goal for Pobeda just before halftime, but that lead only stood until the 65th minute when Murat Adili netted the equalizer. The same player was then expelled in the 78th minute with a direct red card, but Pobeda failed to capitalize.

Gostivar, the leader entering this round, hosted second-placed Makedonija GjP in what was considered the most appealing game this weekend. A single goal would decide things. Kristijan Stojkoski, tied as the leading scorer, would collect the only goal midway through the first half. With this win, Makedonija GjP moved into first place.

Pelister was supposed to cruise in the road game against Gorno Lisiche, but that wasn’t the case. Instead, Pelister left town with only one point in the 1:1 draw.

Ljubanci had similar expectations in their clash versus bottom ranked Kozhuf Miravci. However, they underwhelmed, even more so than Pelister since they lost altogether. Kozhuf won 1:0 with Darko Shterjov being the hero for them. This was the first points and goal for the winning side this season.

The last game of this round was scheduled for Sunday as Teteks hosted Skopje. Despite that the home team played with 10 men from the 40th minute when Aleksandar Stojanovski was red carded, the visitors failed to use the player advantage and the game ended in a goalless draw.
