Round 5

Preview: Macedonian First League – Round 5

Round 5The following round in the First League will have games from Saturday until Tuesday. The derby is the battle in Tetovo between Renova and title holders Shkendija.

Besides the battle in Tetovo, interesting matches are expected in Ohrid and Kicevo as well. Vardar is visiting newly promoted side Ohrid while the leaders Metalurg are facing Napredok in a match that will bring many negative memories from last season. There is bad blood between Napredok and Metalurg as there was an altercation during a game last year which has not been forgotten by either team. 11 Oktomvri remains without a point and also hasn’t scored a goal after four rounds but their fans are expecting a positive result against Teteks at home. The Prilep based club has began the season with a very tough schedule as three of their four opponents in the early season were strong teams like Vardar, Shkendija, and Metalurg. In the remaining games of the round, Sileks faces Bregalnica while Rabotnicki hosts tricky side Horizont Turnovo.
