Round 11 will complete the first part of this season. It will be marked by the derby between Pobeda and Pelister and 5 other great matches scheduled for Sunday.
The Pelagonija derby always attracts lot of attention and it should be no exception this time when Pobeda will host Pelister. The hosts are in dying need of points after their bad start and only 11th place held on the table. Pelister have made a better deal so far and are on the middle of the table, but with old financial problems once again. After their win over Vardar, they only drew 2-2 against second-league side Drita. Stadium Goce Delcev in Prilep had always been a fortress for Pelister and rarely have they managed to conquer it. Whether once again the points will remain in Prilep, we shall see on Sunday at 13.00 CET.
In Tetovo, there will be a city derby between Teteks and Renova. This will be the first time these two meet in the first league and it looks like the younger team will hold the favorites role. It is not just the position on the table that supports this fact, but also Teteks have several problems with injuries and suspensions of some players. Renova did not shined against Rabotnicki in the cup and lost 4-0, so they will be looking to bounce back.
Makedonija Gjorce Petrov will host Sileks in their quest for reaching the top once again. They surely hold the favorites role as only Pelister managed to steal a point in Gjorce Petrov and on the remaining three matches played there Makedonija scored 17 goals against their opponents. These two teams are neighbors on the table but it seems like the hosts are rightly considered as favorites for this one.
Vardar will be hosting Turnovo Horizont after two consecutive defeats and still unsettled destiny ahead of them. The new sponsor seems like come and go every day, but nothing official has been confirmed. Turnovo have gathered 15 points so far and surely are far more secure then Vardar who only have 9 points and are near the bottom of the table. It will be a tough match for the hosts, but they must put the win as an imperative ahead of them as future is not bright for them if they lose points once again.
National television A1 has chosen to broadcast the match between Sloga Jugomagnat and leaders Rabotnicki for this round. Rabotnicki are red hot at the moment and they have confirmed that correct with their amazing 4-0 win against biggest rivals for the title at the moment, Renova. Sloga are solid at home but not undefeatable as Metalurg already proved.
In the fourth match payed in Skopje this round, Metalurg should have an easy job against the youngsters from Kumanovo, Milano. It seems like easy three for Metalurg,
