At the "National Arena Philip II of Macedonia," Vardar had an easy time against Turnovo. Dejan Blazhevski and Cesar Romero led the way with two goals apiece, while Filip Ivanovski added one goal as well. Ivanovski opened the scoring in the 16th minute on a header, while Blazhevski made it 2:0 two minutes later. Dejan capitalized on some terrible defending to score from close range. Before halftime, Cesar Romero completed a brace with two impressive goals. His first strike came on a shot from just outside of the area, while his second goal was an absolute beauty on a long-range free kick. At the hour mark, Romero received a red card for an incident in the box. While waiting for a corner kick to be taken, a Turnovo player went down, accusing Romero of hitting him. The referee decided to dismiss the Mexican-American attacker. Blazhevski would then grab his second goal midway through the 2nd half on a well placed effort from inside the area. Turnovo, would net a late consolation goal via Kristijan Ivanov. After some sloppy defending, Ivanov found himself in a great position and slotted a shot past Pachovski.
