The last round saw 33 goals, but that was topped this weekend with a total of 39 goals. The highest scoring game was between Miravci and already relegated Novaci. Miravci was expected to win and did just that with a resounding 8:3 shellacking.

After failing to do it last round, this time Teteks eventually got promoted. A goalless draw away to Drita was enough for the Blues to get back in the best Macedonian League after only one in the Second. They, together with Sileks got relegated last season, but both are now promoted.

Vrapchishte and Shkupi clinched important road wins in the battle for avoiding the relegation play-offs.  They played against two teams that were already relegated, 11 Oktomvri and Borec, so the games ended with many goals. Still, last round will tell if both will stay in the safe zone.

Zajazi recorded a very important win over relegation rivals Pobeda Junior. It was 1:1, but with a goal 9 minutes from time, the home team grabbed the 3 points. Now Zajazi is safe from direct relegation and will definitely play in the relegation play-offs, while Pobeda Junior can still be relegated depending on their future encounter against Drita (if Tiverija doesn't beat Vrapchishte away, then Pobeda's results will be irrelevant).

Skopje beat already promoted side Sileks and ensured themselves a place in the safe zone.  In the game between two relegated sides, Lokomotiva celebrated against Madjari Solidarnost.
