With a hat-trick by Hadjija Destan, the only Second League side in the play-offs managed to make a solid advantage before the return leg. Ljubanci beat the winner of the Third League South-West, Novaci with 3:1 showing that the difference between levels is still remarkable. Novaci still isn't eliminated, but will have a mountain to climb on Sunday.

For many the team of Akademija Pandev is the strongest in the play-offs, but the winners of the East did show that in the game against Goblen Junior, winner of the North. It was even the outsiders that broke the dead lock after a counter attack and a mistake in the home defence. Akademija Pandev managed to turn the result in their favour thanks to an own goal and a good shot by Zoran Zlatkovski after the break. The Strumica based team has the lead, but Goblen Junior showed that can be dangerous and won't give up easily.
