North Macedonia hit back to hold neighbours Bulgaria, while Tomáš Suslov scored the only goal as Slovakia saw off Belarus.
Türkiye maintained their dominant start in Group C1, racking up a 6-0 win against Lithuania, while Georgia were also among the goals as they won 5-2 in Bulgaria, prompting the hosts' Yasen Petrov to resign after the game. Greece and Kazakhstan also maintained perfect records thanks to victories against Kosovo and Slovakia respectively.
Greece and Georgia extended their perfect records following 3-0 victories but Kazakhstan failed to make it three wins from three as they drew away to Belarus and Slovakia moved to within a point with their success. Another 100% record went when Luxembourg and Türkiye – who had both won their opening two games – faced off, with Serdar Dursun's clincher for the visitors making him the competition's top scorer with four goals.
Greece became the first team to secure promotion by beating Kosovo 2-0, while Türkiye also improved their chances of going up by downing Lithuania to record a fourth straight win and move five points clear at the Group C1 summit. Undefeated Kazakhstan stretched their lead at the top of their section to four points, while Azerbaijan clinched their first victory. North Macedonia closed the gap at the Group C4 summit, as Georgia were held to a goalless draw by Bulgaria.
