Leaders Vardar started great on the road game in Shtip against Bregalnica and after half on hour were already leading 2:0. But the Blues never gave up. They won two penalties and both were converted but Goran Zdravkov. A big blow for the hosts followed when Marko Ranđelović was sent-off due to a second yellow card. Just three minutes later Vardar introduced attackers Damir Kojašević and Tigran Barseghyan in order to win the points, but surprisingly it was Bregalnica who scored for a 3:2 lead thanks to veteran striker Riste Naumov. However, that was not the end. Vardar managed to bury the hopes of the Blues for remaining in the league with a goal in the dying moments of the game, or more precisely in the 3rd minute of the injury time.

A big surprise happened in Prilep where Pobeda defeated Shkendija. The hero was Serbian international Miroslav Stanić who scored the winner in the 35th minute. With this win Pobeda is now 9 points ahead of Bregalnica and only a miracle can see the boys from Prilep getting a direct relegation. The 6 points difference between them and Shkupi gives a hope that maybe they can even avoin the relegation play-off.

Rabotnichki and Pelister shared the points in an 1:1 draw at the Philip II stadium in Skopje. Petrov brought the lead for the visitors early in the game, while Duranski equalized in the 2nd injury minute before the break.

Sileks recorded a lone goal road win over bottom-placed Makedonija GjP and now got really close to the last Europa League spot mainly thanks to the draw between rival teams Rabotnichki and Pelister.

Renova made a come from behind win over Shkupi. The visitors had a 1:0 lead from the 5th minute, but Petkovski in the first half and Nafiu after the break sent the visitors home empty handed.
