North Macedonia – Russia Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 11:30

North Macedonia come into this match in very good form from the last year, though many would point toward their competition more so than them only. They have six wins, a draw, and a loss, so thats not bad at all. The Red Lynxes have won all four home matches in the last year, so thats a big positive. They took 15 out of a 16 points in UNL League D, Group 4 to stroll toward promotion to League C next time around. With that said, they havent played, much less beaten a team of Polands caliber, so this is a big step up.

North Macedonia welcome their rivals at Philip II Arena and they wear red shirts with yellow stripe and red shorts when playing at home ground. The colour of their away kits is white. However, Goce Seldloski is the most capped player (100). Pandev scored his 28th and 29th goal for North Macedonia in a 3-0 win over Belarus in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Igor Angelovskis troops, on the other hand, did well to hold Israel to a draw in their last qualifying match, with the team keeping their hopes of booking their place at Euro 2020 alive. Daugavas Stadiona will host Mondays Euro 2020 qualifier between Latvia and North Macedonia. Latvia suffered a loss in each of their five group games in the qualifiers and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the clash against the Crveni Risovi.

They were able to win five of their six games in order to top the pile and secure a playoff place for Euro 2020. 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. North Macedonia are climbing up the Nations League ranks, following their excellent form in UEFAs new competition. Theyve claimed draws at Israel and Slovenia, so they have solid away form behind them. Its not unthinkable, as the visitors have been resilient so far.

North Macedonia might have a little chance, but they are eager to prove themselves, and there is no better way than to beat Russia. Nevertheless, we can all agree that the fun and competitiveness will be present at all times and that every player will everything they can to win the match. It is safe to say that Russia will probably be the obvious winner in this match.

Latvia vs North Macedonia Correct Score Prediction

That means it's going to be tough for the North Macedonians to hold them back, and ultimately they will not be able to close the gates to the Polish attack. Expert Verdict: North Macedonia have looked very good of late at home, but this match against Poland will certainly put that record to the test. Poland have two of the most lethal strikers in all of Europe and have been trouncing through qualifiers in recent years.

Goran Pandev just keeps on ticking- and kicking- for the North Macedonians. The Leeds midfielder has just five goals n 27 appearances, but he is lethal at setting up goals and will be an influencer on proceedings. The former Inter Milan man has scored 33 times and will captain his team out for his 102nd cap, showing just how huge he is for them even at the ripe age of 35. In midfielder, Ezgjan Alioski is the man to watch.

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. 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.

The Russian national volleyball team is one of the most successful in history. After the Soviet Union collapsed, the name Russia took over. They previously competed under the name of USSR. With the increase of volleyballs popularity in the world, the sport has definitely risen and evolved a lot in recent years. They have numerous appearances in the Summer Olympics, World Championships, and European Championships.

North Macedonia were able to score 14 times across their six Nations League games, scoring at least twice in five of the six. 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. Theyve certainly got goals in them against a poor defence, which sums up Latvia right now.
