Bosnia and Herzegovina, BH Telecom Premijer Liga, Olimpic - Radnik 2:3
Filip Gligorov did not feature for Olimpic as many of their players were rested after the club won the Bosnian Cup trophy last week.

Romania, Liga I, Botoșani - Viitorul 4:4
Boban Nikolov got the start for Viitorul and played until the 67th minute when he was replaced by Roberto Casap. In the 51st minute, a pretty cool moment occurred when Ianis Hagi, the 16-year-old son of footballing legend Gheorghe Hagi, scored his first goal for Viitorul. Ianis, Nikolov and the rest of their teammates all ran towards Gheorghe, the club's manager, to give him a hug.

The goal by Ianis Hagi:

Slovakia, Fortuna Liga, Spartak Myjava - Košice 1:1
Darko Tofiloski played from the start for Košice and conceded one goal in the 5th minute on a close range header. Despite finishing in 6th place based on the number of points, Košice will not be competing in the top division next season. The Slovak federation did not issue them a license due to financial problems. So, Košice will play in the second division next season. Tofiloski will surely leave this summer, given that decision.

Czech Republic, Synot Liga, Slavia Praha - Slovácko 1:3
Veliche Shumulikoski was not included in the 18 player matchday squad by Slovácko. This was the final round of the season and Slovácko finished in 9th place on the standings.

Iceland, Úrvalsdeild, Fjölnir - Akranes 2:0
Daniel Ivanovski played all 90 minutes for Fjölnir and was part of a defense that kept a clean sheet.

South Korea, K-League Classic, Jeonnam - Busan 3:1
