The 26th round marked the top 3 teams visiting the bottom three teams. Horizont Turnovo visited Kratovo, Vardar was in Bogovinje, while Metalurg faced Teteks.

Horizont Turnovo managed to take the three points from Kratovo and maintained the first position. Baldovaliev opened the scoreline in the second half, Georgiev set the score straight later and gave Sileks some hope about avoiding relegation, but Dejan Blazhevski's goal three minutes from time gave his team a confirmation of the deserved first place on the table.

Vardar, although down at half-time, managed to turh things around and celebrated a 1:3 win in Bogovinje. Ramadani scored the first goal of the match towards the last minutes of the first half, but it was all about Vardar in the second half. First, Kostovski equalized the score, then Lukić was sent off after he got his second yellow card, Temelkov gave his team a lead in 59th minute and around 10 minutes later Stojkov confirmed the win with Vardar's third goal of the match.

Metalurg saved a point against Teteks, after the home team had lead from 27th minute when Jovanoski scored a goal up until 89th minute when Mile Krstev brought the visitors a point. Meanwhile, both teams ended the match with 10 players each, as Shishkov was sent off from the visiting team in 82nd minute, while Nachevski got a red card 5 minutes later.

Shkendija defeated Rabotnichki and jumped up to the 4th place of the table. One goal was all it took as central defender Berisha was the scorer of the lone goal  in the first half that brought three points to the home team. More then an hour Rabotnichki was plating with 10 men as Jeremić saw an early shower after receiving a red card in 30th minute.

Pelister and Bregalnica shared the points in a scoreless draw in Bitola. A match that was a 6-pointer, proved to be too important for any team to risk too much and both teams have to be content with one point each. This way, Pelister still lies in the relegation play off zone, while Bregalnica is one spot above them.
