Second League – Round 28

Second LeaguePobeda Junior scored a stunning 12 goals, Madjari Solidarnost got relegated, while Teteks missed a chance to win promotion as two rounds remain in the Second League.

It was expected that Pobeda Junior would easily get past already relegated side Borec, but what happened was a real humiliation in form of 12 goals. Blagoja Geshoski scored 4 goals to help Pobeda Junior clinch a 12:1 victory. Pobeda Junior is battling to avoid the last direct relegation spot, but still has slim chances to avoid the relegation play-offs if some things go their way.

Skopje celebrated a 3:1 win away to Madjari Solidarnost, ending the chances for survival for the losing team. Madjari had to win, but after falling shot they are now officially relegated to the Third League North after two seasons in the second flight of Macedonian football.

Teteks missed a great opportunity to clinch the second promotion place. They needed a win over Zajazi for that to happen, but could only muster a draw. The ending proved dramatic as Teteks took the 1:0 lead moments before the end, but Zajazi tied the score the next minute to postpone Teteks promotion for the time being. Teteks will now have to avoid defeat in the next round against Drita; otherwise things could get complicated since FK Skopje may catch them. Teteks and Skopje face off in final round of season.

Vrapchishte recorded an important win over their relegation rivals Miravci. Tiverija also clinched a much needed win, but the Strumica based team is still in a very tough situation since they only have one game left (their other scheduled opponent was kicked out of the league) and are currently in the relegation zone.

Sileks got past Drita by a single goal to mathematically end their chances for promotion, while Navaci beat Lokomotiva 3:2 in the battle of two relegated teams. Novaci came back from a 2:0 deficit, benefiting from the fact that the visitors played with one fewer player since the 63rd minute when Ivan Ivanov was shown a red card.
