10/11 - Teteks - Metalurg  ???

It is notable that the Cup champion from previous season on 4 occasions was not able to defend the title the following season but at the same time 4 times teams managed to defend the title. We will see a 5th time on one of the occasions for sure, because Teteks are the title defenders from last season. What's it gonna be this time? Bookmakers consider Metalurg as favorites and price them around 1.50, but this is Teteks' chance for gaining a place for Europa League for next season.

It is interesting that these 2 teams met just last Saturday in Skopje in a match that finished 1:1. On the first match this season, it was 0:0 in Tetovo, while in Skopje, November last year, Metalurg celebrated a 1:0 win with Krstev's goal from penalty in the 22nd minute.
