Macedonian derby in Cyprus with 4 Macedonians on the pitch.

Trichkovski is fully fit and played 85 minutes in this match albeit he played with a protective mask on his head. He was very active and had several good chances but Bogatinov who has found his was back to the starting keeper position had a really good as well. Eventually, Trichkovski was fouled in the box and later he has successfully converted the penalty.

Greece, Souper Ligk, Kerkyra - PAOK 0:5
Vladimir Dimitrovski was on the bench for his side's heavy home defeat.

Italy, Serie A, Genoa - Palermo 3:4
Incredible game at Marassi that saw three Macedonians on the field for at least couple of minutes. Goran Pandev was a last hope substitute for Genoa coming in instead Armando Izzo in the 2nd injury minute after palermo made an astonishing come from behind lead. That lead, for 4:3, was thanks to the other two Macedonians. Ilija Nestorovski, of course, played the full game, while Aleksandar Trajkovski got a chance to play for the first time this season after the injury, coming in at 79th minute instead Thiago Rangel Cionek when Genoa was leading 3:2. In the 90th minute Nestorovski assisted to Trajkovski who scored the winner. In the injury time Nestorovski wanted to lose time by preventing home keeper Mattia Perin to kick the ball which lead to Perin pushing him and getting a direct red card, while Nestorovski was awarded a yellow for obstruction of play. Some livescore sites have Nestorovski as assistant to the first goal for his team, but it isn't true as although he passed the ball to the scorer, he then made a great solo run before scoring. This was the first home defeat for Genoa who at this venue defeated even Juventus and Milan.
