Just like the last round, Vardar only needed one goal to collect another win. The victim was Mladost earlier this week, while Metalurg suffered the same fate on this Sunday. Mexican attacker Cesar Romero returned from his red card suspension, and he proved to be the hero for Vardar. In the 27th minute, Romero scored a nice goal directly from a free kick. That was all Vardar needed as goalkeeper Tome Pachovski kept a clean sheet for the sixth consecutive league game. Metalurg, on the other hand, sit in last place as they appear destined for relegation.

Shkendija also had no problems, remaining within striking distance of Vardar. Bregalnica proved to be no match, losing to Shkendija 2:0.

Alimi scored on a rebound opportunity from close range in the 1st half, while Radeski also got his goal on a simple effort from inside the area following an assist by right-back Blagoja Todorovski.
