Dark skies made several of the 213 spectators at Prince Arena contemplate an early return journey, but the rain held off. The picks for today were: Steklý - Skibicki, Jásek, Rybenský, Pytlík, Vágner - Houžvička, Žižlavský, Klučka - Vondráček, Kaplan.

The lucky starting players: Mitanovski - Grameno, Abrashi - Kezaroski, Blazevski, Panevski, Lluci, Cikarski - Muzaka, Trifunoski, Paqarizi.

Patricks Prince Royal FC started the game in a 5-3-2 formation, whereas PIONERI lined up in a 2-5-3 formation. Patricks took a creative approach on the field. PIONERI decided to play creatively. Intentions were certainly good, but the PIONERI indirect free kick combination after 10 minutes was easily anticipated by the defenders. That was a textbook example of how to defend a free kick - the attackers were left with few viable options. The guests took the initiative 17 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in Ladim Paqarizi scoring the 0 - 1 goal. Mitre Cikarski sprinted towards goal after 20 minutes, but managed to trip over his own feet and the ball ran out for a goal kick. 21 minutes into the academy game, Malen Muzaka had a good chance to add to the visitors' lead as he almost got on the end of a cross from the right wing but Bohumil Steklý managed to get to the ball first, and cleared it to safety. Antonín Žižlavský rushed from deep after 27 minutes of the game had gone. He received a perfectly timed pass in the area, but at the last moment, one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in and warded it off for a corner. Malen Muzaka twisted his arm after 35 minutes, forcing PIONERI to make a substitution. Zhivko Bozinov tried to hide a smile as he entered the field. He had not expected to get a chance this day. Jetan Grameno was unable to continue, following a slight injury to his left knee after 39 minutes. The replacement for the injured player was Zoki Lazarev. 0 - 1 was the score after 45 minutes. PIONERI pleased their coach greatly, as they maintained 55 percent of possession.

A haphazard combination through the middle gave PIONERI's Dusan Blazevski a decent chance to increase the lead, and he did not disappoint. The score after 53 minutes was therefore 0 - 2. In the 55th minute, PIONERI could have gone up another goal, but Ladim Paqarizi hesitated way too long at the spot and the penalty kick that followed was therefore easily anticipated by the goalie. Thanks to a beautiful combination in midfield, Luboš Vágner managed to reduce the score to 1 - 2 for Patricks. Many spectators missed the beautiful goal, instead engrossed in a discussion on suburban house prices. After 68 minutes, PIONERI's Radoslav Trifunoski careened through the central defenders and was just able to get off a shot for the 1 - 3 goal before being brought down by his marker. The match ends with a 1 - 3 score. In this half PIONERI were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 55 percent of the time.

The Patricks players gave Pavel Vondráček a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". Bohumil Steklý needs a lot of extra training, however. The spectators agreed that the most impressive boy in PIONERI today had been Radoslav Trifunoski. Ladim Paqarizi showed he still has a lot to learn.
