The matchup between the top two teams in Sileks and Teteks ended with a minimal home win for Teteks in Tetovo. The lone goal of the game was scored early in the 9th minute through Teteks midfielder Bobi Bozhinovski. That result remained until the end and Teteks handed Sileks only their second loss of the season.

Tiverija survived the tough road encounter by winning a point against Zajazi. This was only the fourth time in which Zajazi failed to take all 3 points in front of their fans. Tiverija could have even won as Zajazi went down to 10 men in the 78th minute when Raif Miserlovski was shown a red card, but the match stayed goalless.

Vrapchishte and Drita won big over Borec and 11 Oktomvri, respectively. Ertan Hasan of Vrapchiste and Betim Miftari of Drita celebrated hat-tricks to lead their teams to easy victories.

In the battle to avoid the relegation play-offs, Skopje and Shkupi recorded important wins over Miravci and Novaci. Shkupi was a firm favorite against nearly relegated Novaci, while Skopje soundly defeated Miravci. Both teams won their home games 3:0.

Also, Pobeda Junior clinched 3 crucial points that put them outside of the relegation zone for the time being. Now they would be in the relegation play-offs. A converted penalty by Toni Meglenski was enough to beat Madjari Solidarnost.

The last game between Lokomotiva and Rufeja wasn't played because the visitors never showed up. It is clear that Rufeja will be expelled from the competition as this was their second no-show after also not showing up in last round against Sileks.
