Gjoko Zajkov played the opening 45 minutes for Charleroi before he was replaced at the start of the 2nd half by Clinton Mata. Zajkov was once again fielded at right-back due to an injury crisis at that position. Charleroi was losing 1:0 at halftime, so the manager decided to insert a quick winger in Mata to take the place of Zajkov.

Ivan Trichkovski started for Legia and played the complete fixture. Legia grabbed both goals after the 85th minute to beat Wisła Kraków. The win moved them five points behind top ranked Piast Gliwice on the standings. As for Trichkovski, he was not very threatening as he still looks out of form.

Hungary, OTP Bank Liga, Újpest - Diósgyőr 2:1
Enis Bardhi started for Újpest and lasted the full 90 minutes. Bardhi opened the scoring in the 33rd minute on a perfectly placed free kick from about 25 meters.

Spain, Segunda División B - Group 3, Valencia B - Barcelona B 0:3
David Babunski was not available for Barcelona B due to an injury. Four weeks have now passed (prognosis of how long Barça B thought David would miss), so the hope is that Babunski will return to action very soon.

Spain, Segunda División B - Group 3, Sestao - Fuenlabrada 1:0
Dorian Babunski started in attack for Fuenlabrada and played the complete encounter. After trailing 1:0 at the half, Fuenlabrada deployed a very offensive minded lineup in the 2nd half, but they could not break down Sestao.

Ostoja Stjepanovic began on the bench for OFK Beograd before he was introduced in the 68th minute to take the spot of Damjan Gojkov, while his teammate Daniel Avramovski got the start and played until the 82nd minute when he made way for Filip Rajevac.

Both Aleksandar Lazevski and Tome Kitanovski lasted the full 90 minutes for Mladost Lučani. Lazevski was fielded at left-back, while Kitanovski played further up in midfield. Tome had one shot on target just before halftime, but his effort from the edge of the area was pushed over the goal for a corner kick. Kitanovski also picked up a yellow card in the 19th minute.

Serbia, Jelen SuperLiga, Metalac - Novi Pazar 3:2
Stefan Ashkovski continues to be sidelined for Novi Pazar with a long-term injury (broken jaw). Last week, Partizan manager Ljubinko Drulovic mentioned that his club might decide to bring back Ashkovski during the winter transfer window. As a reminder, Partizan still owns Ashkovski's rights (he is on loan at Novi Pazar) until next summer (when his contract expires). Drulovic is familiar with Ashkovski from his days leading the Macedonian national team (he gave Ashkovski several caps). Ljubinko noted that Stefan played well for Novi Pazar before the injury, and he will decide early next year whether Ashkovski rejoins Partizan (by cutting short his loan agreement).

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Premijer Liga, Široki Brijeg - Sarajevo 1:0
Krste Velkoski opened on the bench for Sarajevo before he made a late appearance in the 83rd minute to substitute Leon Benko. Sarajevo concluded the first half of the season with a narrow loss to find itself in 5th place heading into the long winter break in Bosnia.

Russia, Premier League, Spartak Moscow - Krylia Sovetov 1:0
Adis Jahovic played the entire game for Krylia Sovetov who suffered a minimal loss by conceding the lone goal in the 1st minute. Jahovic inadvertently prevented a sure equalizer in the 65th minute. A shot by Alan Chochiyev, one of his teammates, was headed for the back of the net, but Adis blocked it as he could not get out of the way. Jahovic also received a yellow card in the 21st minute. Just like the Bosnian league, Russia also entered the winter break after this round.

Azerbaijan, Topaz Premyer Liqası, Qarabağ - Inter Baku 1:0
Vladimir Dimitrovski was not among the 18 players called up by Qarabağ. Dimitrovski got a chance to play in the cup fixture last week, but he has not seen much action in league games.

Cyprus, First Division Championship, Nea Salamis - Ethnikos Achnas 2:2
Martin Bogatinov started at keeper for Ethnikos Achnas and conceded two goals in the 27th and 48th minute. One came on a close range header, while the other came on a shot from inside the area. Bogatinov also got lucky in the 21st minute when the ball appeared to cross the line (confirmed on replays), but the main referee ruled no goal on that occasion.

Cyprus, First Division Championship, APOEL - Apollon 0:1
Valmir Nafiu continues to be sidelined for APOEL with an injury. He underwent an operation to his back earlier in the year. Nafiu is another player whose return timetable is unclear.

Thailand, Toyota Thai Premier League, Muangthong United - BEC Tero Sasana 1:2
Mario Gjurovski started for Muangthong United and played until the 72nd minute when his spot was taken by Chananan Pombuppha. Gjurovski netted the lone goal for Muangthong United in the 28th minute.

Then, on the red card, Shumulikoski got in the face of an opponent after his teammate was fouled hard. The referee came running in and gave Veliche his second booking.
