Vitebsk-BATE 1:0
Dinamo B-Naftan 2:2
Isloč-Neman 2:0
Torpedo BelAZ-Smorgon 2:0
Dnepr-Dinamo M 0:2
Gomel-Minsk 2:0
Slavia-Arsenal 3:0
Šahter-Sluck 1:2

Slavia and Torpedo BelAZ won routinely, while Neman lost again, this time at Isloč. Dinamo Minsk won in Mogilev and climbed to fourth. Šahter could not win even at home against Sluck and BATE lost their third match this season.

North Macedonian League (1. MFL), 3 matches to go:

Shkendija 58 +26
Struga 58 +21
Shkupi 58 +21

They all play each other once until the end.

MD 31: Shkupi - Shkendija
MD 32: Shkendija - Struga
MD 33: Struga - Shkupi

To make things more interesting, 3rd team will be left out of Europe as Tikveš and Voska Sport (mathematically can't get into top 3) are in the final. So:

1st team - Champions, Q1 UCL
2nd team - Q1 COL
3rd team- Nothing!

Every spot to play for.

With the first tie-break being gd or h2h points?

In semifinals if the game ends in the draw the higher placed team will advance but in the final and 3po games will have extra time and penalties. All games will be played in Air Albania stadium and will be single legged in a final 4 format.

It sounds like a perfect format....to increase match-fixing (in the regular season) in a league already plagued by it.

"Warning - genius at work, do not disturb".
A bit late but I want to confirm what a disgrace this ''format'' is. Most likely it will be reverted next season due to big backlash it's facing. Especially clubs like Egnatia are profiting massively since they practically secured top 4 a long time ago.
And the grand final of the Albania league championship "Final 4" will be refereed by Anthony Taylor of EPL.

It was a historical day for Irish football yesterday. The derby Shamrock Rovers - Bohemians attracted more than 10k fans, a number not seen in the last 33 (!) years.

A new record for this century also in the North, for the Cup final between Cliftonville and Linfield:

Despite Linfield and Cliftonville being big ones in NI football, this is the first cup final in 90 years involving both teams.

Smorgon-Dnepr 0:0
Dinamo M-Vitebsk 1:1
Neman-Šahter 1:0
Minsk-Torpedo BelAZ 1:2
BATE-Isloč 1:1
Naftan 0:2 Gomel
Sluck-Slavia 1:0
Arsenal-Dinamo B 0:2

Slavia lost in Sluck and Torpedo BelAZ won at (basically last placed) Minsk, so we have a tie at the top. Neman did not impress against Šahter, but won and stayed up there with the best, so as Dinamo Brest, that continues a great run. Dinamo Minsk only drew against Vitebsk (we must of course also congratulate to Vitebsk, which is clearly a better team than many expected), but they are still by far the main favourite for the title. BATE is clearly not competitive.

Partizan is trying to miss the top 2 in Serbia for both seasons where Serbia has 2 CLQ teams, incredible!

I wonder what is the reason of Partizan collapsing at the end of the season. Bookies probably are also unaware as they had odds of @1.20 for Partizan to win today.

1 Egnatia (Q) 63
2 Partizani (Q) 60
3 Vllaznia (Q) 59
4 Skënderbeu 48
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5 Tirana 47
6 Teuta 47
7 Dinamo 47
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8 Laçi (Q) 43
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9 Erzeni (R) 32
10 Kukësi (R) 27

Interesting situation ahead of the final matchday in the Albanian league. 4 teams will fight for the last final 4 spot.
If Skënderbeu (banned from Europe) qualifies and Egnatia wins the cup then the ECL Q1 spot will go to the 5th ranked team.
