First LeagueFirst League Vardar and Turnovo will enter photo-finish, Metalurg losing pace - three rounds to go and it is still exciting on the top.

With three rounds to go, it seems like both Vardar and Horizont Turnovo are still going strong. Both teams grabbed important away wins - Vardar defeated Shkendija in Tetovo, Horizont Turnovo celebrated against Napredok. 

The derby between Shkendija and Vardar was not as fierce as in the past. Vardar managed to get the points and stay on the first place. Many pundits have been predicting win for Vardar and maybe that is why the odds online dropped very low before the start of the match. However, the match ended in crucial away win for Vardar, while Shkendija still has the Cup final against Teteks.

Horizont Turnovo also managed to win to stay in the race for the first place, while at the same time piling more misery on Napredok. From an amazing first half-season, the Kichevo based team is now not far away from play-out spot.

Metalurg lost the pace with Vardar and Turnovo after they shared the points with Rabotnichki at home. The visiting team opened the scoreline early in the match, but Metalurg managed to equalize through Peev in the second half. However, they did not had enough strength to take all the points and it seems more likely they are out of the champions race.

Drita managed to take all three points from Kratovo and Sileks' win against Pelister from several days ago came in vain as they are now 9 points behind Pelister and with three rounds to go, virtually they are in the second league. Teteks and Pelister shared the points in a scoreless draw in Gjorche Petrov which probably did not satisfy any of the teams as Teteks is trying to avoid relegation, while Pelister was focusing on avoiding the play-out spots.
