North Macedonia – Turkey Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 11:30

But, this game against what is a poor Latvia side can be a real turning point for North Macedonia as they are simply a better team. As it was already said, North Macedonia has only 5 points and they have to start playing better if they want to qualify, and that is certainly not going to be an easy job for them.

The limited head to head record doesnt give us a lot to go on, but both teams performances since the tail end of 2018 suggests that backing North Macedonia with a double chance bet is well worth a punt. North Macedonia drew their last home game against Poland 1-1 back in 2008. Under 2.5 goals were produced in two of North Macedonias last four and each of Polands last five matches, and both teams have only kept two clean sheets in their last six matches, which is why we are backing Fridays game to end in a 1-1 draw. North Macedonia have only lost one of their last six international matches, while Poland have lost three of their last six.

Macedonia have won 1 of the 2 matches, Macedonia have a current form rating of 83% They have scored 3 in the 2 matches against Slovenia and have won 50% of those matches. 0% of the last 2 Slovenia v Macedonia matches have resulted in a draw. Slovenia have won 1 of the 2 matches, Slovenia have a current form rating of 33% They have scored 3 in the 2 matches against Macedonia and have won 50% of those matches. The teams have played each other 2 times since 2012.

Austria is yet to open their account in this qualification tournament. The game threatened to end a draw, but the presence of great strikers at the other end changed the probable destiny for Austria. Their hosting of Poland ended in disappointment, though a brave fight was put up by the home team. They lost both their games so far, and have let in five goals in the process.

Israel vs North Macedonia Correct Score Prediction

They will not have much to hope for in this game. They recorded 1 win. 3 draws, and 2 losses. North Macedonia has 5 points from 5 games played. They are scoring as well as conceding many goals so we can expect the same to happen in this game also. They still have their chances to compete for the top 2 spots and advance to the European Championship. Latvia, on the other hand, are in very poor form. Both teams are looking to secure as good as a possible result, hoping to qualify for the European Championship. They have 0 points from their first four games and are conceding 3 goals per game.

Currently, Israel is standing at the second place behind the Polish National team. North Macedonia has lost 2 matches in a row, but they have not seen 3 consecutive defeats since November 2016. Furthermore, with just one competitive defeat on the road since the beginning of 2017, while winning four matches and drawing 2, they will likely be tough opponents. On the other side, North Macedonia is second to last with just 4 points from 4 games and if they want something, they will have to grab some points from this game, for sure. That one other time, North Macedonia won 0:1 as an away side and that was their last Head-To-Head game, played in 2017. An interesting thing is that all five matches were won by a slim one-goal margin. They have played five times in their history so far, with Israel winning four times. Averaging 2.0 goals scored per ECQ fixture so far, Israel are rarely involved in a dull game and havent seen a goalless draw at home since March 2007. By looking at all of that, an interesting game is underway and the best tip is probably both teams scoring.

North Macedonia are climbing up the Nations League ranks, following their excellent form in UEFAs new competition. They will want to head into those playoffs with a strong group finish, or possibly even an automatic berth at the finals if they hit form. They were able to win five of their six games in order to top the pile and secure a playoff place for Euro 2020. Its not unthinkable, as the visitors have been resilient so far. Theyve claimed draws at Israel and Slovenia, so they have solid away form behind them.

Were confident that a double chance bet on the hosts will payout on Friday, and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. Poland have the better squad which is why we are leaning towards a draw rather than a home win, but the last time these two sides met in North Macedonia the game ended 1-1. North Macedonia captain Goran Pandev and fellow forwards Aleksandar Trajkovski and Ilija Nestorovski provide the majority of the teams goals, but at the age of 35 Pandev isnt the player he once was. Robert Lewandowski captains Poland and leads from the front, scoring 56 goals in 104 appearances for his country, while Milik and Grosicki also chip in with goals sporadically. North Macedonia are the form favourites heading into Fridays match, but neither side have tasted defeat in qualifying so far.

As it was already said, North Macedonia has only 4 points and they have to start playing better if they want to qualify, and that is certainly not going to be an easy job for them. Because Israel is a good goalscoring team, that stat has to change by scoring a couple of goals. That looks unreal at this moment, so we will see what happens. On the negative side, four of Macedonias last six competitive away defeats were to nil.

Israel vs North Macedonia Prediction

North Macedonia were able to score 14 times across their six Nations League games, scoring at least twice in five of the six. Theyve certainly got goals in them against a poor defence, which sums up Latvia right now. The visitors should be looking to put the gulf between these two sides on full display. We expect them to step up a gear in this clash with Latvia, especially after their 3-1 win in the reverse fixture.
