The most interesting game was played between table leaders Makedonija GjP and the still undefeated side of Pelister. The “Lions” took the lead just before halftime, nnouncing the first defeat for the visitors from Bitola. However, Pelister did not surrender. Within only three minutes at the hour mark, they turned the score around with two goals. Veteran striker Boban Janchevski would score an equalizer several minutes later for a final score of 2:2. Makedonija GjP still added to their lead at the top of the standings thanks to Gostivar’s defeat, while Pelister played its sixth draw to move into second.


The fans of Gostivar were expecting nothing but 3 points from their home encounter with Gorno Lisiche, but the visitors proved to be a tough obstacle. After a goalless first half, Gostivar increased its pressure up front which resulted in a lot of space for the visitors. Gorno Lisiche took advantage by scoring twice in the second half. This was their third win in a row and Gorno Lisiche has gone from a relegation candidate to now only being a point away from the promotion spot.

Teteks traveled to Kichevo looking to remain undefeated in their match against Vlazrimi 77, but they fell short on that front eventually feeling the bitter taste of the defeat. Teteks has also been hampered by too many draws, but they lost for the first time by conceding two goals within the opening half-hour.

Pobeda, meanwhile, managed to grab a win over Ljubanci by scoring all of its three goals in the second half. Ljubanci has begun to struggle after a good initial start to the campaign. Pobeda came out on top despite this game being played on a neutral venue in the city of Ohrid (behind closed doors as well). That was the case because Pobeda’s stadium in Prilep was suspended due to an incident in the last round when a portion of their fans invaded the pitch to attack the referees.

The score of 3:0 also occurred in the clash between Kozhuf Miravci and Skopje with the visitors celebrating at the end. It was the seventh defeat for Kozhuf Miravci who remains stuck on the bottom of the table with only 3 points.
