Shkendija's starting line-up; photo: kfshkendija.comShkendija's starting line-up; photo: The first leg on road against Neftçi ended in a goalless draw even though Shkendija had more of the game.

The team from Tetovo started with the same players like in the two previous encounters of the qualifications, understandable as Shkendija recorded two wins. The first serious chance was created just after eight minutes when Marjan Radeski dribbled past the opposing goalkeeper but his shot hit the post. Armend Alimi had the next good chance in the first half, but his shot was blocked by his teammate Ardian Cuculi. In the second half Shkendija dominated the game more and more, but wasn't able to produce a lot of concrete opportunities, most of the game was played between the two boxes.

The draw without an away goal is a dangerous constellation for the second leg as Shkendija would need a win if Neftçi scores a goal in Macedonia. Shkendija showed that they are able to win against Neftçi, a side that looked quite limited, but one error could make everything very complicated.
