FC Vardar has a positive result in their first home game against Danish champion FC Copenhagen.
After going into half time with a goalless draw, it was the Macedonian champion who pressed forward in the second half looking for a winner.
And they got it, courtesy of Jonathan Balloteli who connected well on a rebound in the penalty box.
Vardar could have easily double their lead via substitute Kobijasich, however the Copenhagen goalie saved his team from going down 2-0.
In the end, the Macedonian champ certainly had luck on its side when Copenhagen failed to score and tie the match via a quick counter attack.
Rematch is in Copenhagen in seven days.
