 The new champion of the Macedonian First Football league is Pobeda from Prilep. This season of the Macedonian football was interesting like never before and the champion had to be decided in the last round. The former champion Rabotnicki Kometal only drew with Makedonija GjP and Pobeda with the win over Shkendija won their second league title.

{mosgoogle} Pobeda Prilep won the second title in the history of the Makedonska Prva Liga (Macedonian First League) and became the football champion of Macedonia for the 2006/07 season. This season was one of the most interesting seasons in the 15 years history of the Macedonian First League and the champion had to be decided in the last round.

Before the last 33rd round Pobeda had 2 points lead over the former champion, so Rabotnicki still had hopes for the title. In the last round they had to win over Makedonija GP and hope for a surprise in Tetovo where Pobeda played away to struggling Shkendija.

The thunderstorm during the match in Tetovo didn't stop the celebration of Pobeda's players but it only delayed it. The heavy rain forced the officials to stop the match for 20 minutes, so this match ended later. At the same time Rabotnicki Kometal had to win on the derby in Skopje over Makedonija GP so they can keep their chances for the title. The football fans in Skopje saw great play full with goals, chances and fighting spirit on both sides and a match that ended with 3:3 and 3 red cards. With this result Rabotnicki lost their chances for the title even before knowing the final result from the match in Tetovo where Pobeda secured their title with an routine 0:2 over Shkendija.

Apart from the top of the table, it was very interesting in the bottom of the table too where Bashkimi, Sileks and Shkendija were fighting to avoid the play-out zone. Bashkimi secured their stay in the league with the 4:1 against the not so motivated Vardar, so the 2:1 win for Sileks over Pelister was ineffective and Sileks together with Shkendija will have to fight against relegation with the 3rd and 4th placed teams from the Second League, Teteks and Skopje.

As known before, Bregalnica from Stip and Vlazrimi from Kicevo were already relegated and their today's opponents Napredok and Renova had easy test matches with no significance.
