Descriptive Text

After a three-week break, the competition for the title of champion in the Kosovo Superleague in football continues on Saturday. The 21st round of the basketball championship was held on February 10 and 11. Then the final tournament of the Cup took place and the break in the championship continued due to the two matches of Kosovo.

And the competition in the Superliga returns strongly, with two important matches on Saturday.

From 17:00, Vellaznimi and Peja meet in Gjakova. Meanwhile, from 19:00 there is the Bashkimi - Golden Eagle Ylli match that takes place in Prizren.

The brotherhood organized the Cup tournament, but he himself stopped in the first match, namely in the quarterfinals. Peja also stopped in the quarterfinals, since on Thursday night it achieved a controversial victory over Sigal Pristina in the Balkan League.

Peja has made important reinforcements recently and intends to defend the champion title. It is currently second in the table with 36 points, four less than Trepça. The brotherhood has not made any move as far as the players are concerned, but has revealed its intentions for victory over Peja. The Gjakova team holds the fifth position with 30 points.

In the last round of the Superliga, Vellaznimi suffered from Sigal Prishtina, while Peja from Bashkimi.

Bashkimi again plays at home and counts on the support of the viewers to defeat Ylli. Both teams moved during the championship break, as far as the players are concerned. The strength of the two teams that stopped in the semi-finals of the Cup will be tested on Saturday from 19:00 in Prizren.

"After the break, we intend to enter the match strongly and concentrated. We want to minimize errors. We were in a good rhythm before the break and we hope to continue playing well. We respect the star, but we must fulfill our duties. With the help of the fans, who are our sixth player, I believe that the points will remain in Prizren", said Bashkimi's coach, Alek Joncevski.

The former NBA player, Terrance Ferguson, is the big reinforcement of the Union for the continuation of the championship.

Meanwhile, Ylli i Suhareka has been reinforced with Vince Cole and Aaron Jones. Consequently, the Suharek team will have a different look starting from the match with Bashkimi.

Ylli is fourth in the table with 33 points, while Union is sixth with 29.

The 22nd round continues on Sunday with two more matches. Initially, from 17:00, Trepça hosts Istog. After winning the Cup, the Mitrovica team aims to continue with victories in the Super League. It is not expected that there will be trouble against Istog, the last place. Trepca is on a streak of 14 victories in the championship. Istog is last in the table with 22 points, respectively with one win and 20 losses.

The round ends with the match Proton Cable Prizreni - Sigal Prishtina, which takes place on Sunday from 19:00. Prishtina is considered the favorite.
