Akademija Pandev is the team that most of all raised its form this spring. From a team that is fighting for survival, they escaped from the danger zone and have a Cup final in their pocket. Today Vardar is coming to Strumica, against whom they are considered absolute favorites. We have been writing about the Vardar crisis for weeks. Not to repeat, the “red and blacks” are fighting for survival, but the mission for first league status next year will be hellishly difficult because the team is made up of teenagers and is in the danger zone. After the exhausting match with Renova, Vardar is expected to “lay down its arms”. Akademija Pandev must take the victory to correct the impression from the meetings with Shkupi and Shkendija, where they lost minimally (both with 0:1). Aleksandar Vasoski was Vardar’s coach in the first part of the season but left them because of the uncertain future. Vardar plays catastrophically on the road. They have five defeats in a row, fifteen conceded goals, and only one given. This trend is expected to continue in Strumica and we expect a clear home triumph for Akademija Pandev.
