After the elimination from UEFA Champions League, Vardar is hosting Fenerbahce for the final qualifying round of UEFA Europe League
The duel against Kobenhavn ended their dreams about entering the most prestigious competition. The minimal 1 – 0 win at home was followed by 4 – 1 defeat in the 2nd leg. Now they are to prove themselves worthy of the competition below. Their overall performance in the Champions League Qualifications wasn’t so bad. Aside from the mentioned loss, they had one draw, and two wins, both of them at home. Their top scorer was Nikolov with 3 goals out of the 6 they scored in total.
Their most recent match was the opening match of Macedonian First League. They played away and lost 2-0, so they are currently at the bottom of the league table.
In the 3rd qualifying round of UEFA Europe League, Fenerbahce squared off with Sturm Graz. The 2nd leg ended in a 1 – 1 draw, but on aggregate the score was 3 – 2 in favour of the Turkish team. Now, basically thanks to Maresic’s own goal, Fenerbahce is taking the final exam for entering the Europe League. One of the scorers for Fenerbahce was their recent and one of the most expensive transfer from Monaco, Nabil Dirar.
After one week in the national league, they are sitting at the 8th place with one point. They played against Goztepe, and the match ended with a score of 2 – 2. That was their most recent match
