Pelister - Vardar
This is the biggest derby in Macedonian football. I expect a draw. Pelister are hosts, but there will be no fans at "Tumbe Fafe Stadium" in Bitola. This is among the reasons for my pick. In addition, today is a raining day in Bitola. The bad weather and bad pitch are ideal for Vardar, who will put the focus on defense. Vardar are on the 9th place with 27 points. Pelister, meanwhile, have 29 points and sit on the 8th place, just outside drop zone. Both teams are experiencing a big financial issues, but the situation is worse at Vardar. As You probably know, the ex-owner Sergej Samsonenko withdrew before the start of the season and nobody step in. At the end I will mention that this is the third match between Pelister and Vardar this season. The previous two have ended with draw:
21.02.2021. Vardar - Pelister 2:2
04.10.2020. Pelister - Vardar 1:1
I expect the series to continue.
