Our Prediction:

Finland will win

Finland – North Macedonia Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 11:30

The last fixture between the two sides here saw Finland win with a 2-0 scoreline. Considering that the hosts have also been wrapping things up with less than 2.5 goals on the charts in their last three games in a row, we can expect Finland to repeat the same as Greece look far from likely to cause any trouble to the hosts in the final third. Given that Finlands main man upfront, Teemu Pukki, is also on a goal-scoring spree at the moment, the chances of the away side salvaging even a point from this matchup is definitely looking bleak.

Finland celebrated in the last two outings in friendly matches, but this time theyll face much serious opponent. Finland had the similar campaign in their group of World Cup qualifiers and after the bad first half of the competition, they managed to wrap up their participation with two wins and draws in the last four matches. Markku Kanervas side should have done a better job in the front since theyve scored nine times in ten occasions. In the closing two clashes, they managed to remain undefeated against very tough opponents, Turkey and Croatia.

North Macedonia Latest Team News

Greece have not beaten Finland in their previous seven visits to this venue. Both teams have got their names on the scoresheet thrice in their last six matchups. Although Greece won their last encounter by a 1-0 scorecard, it is their only victory over this side in their last four meetings. Finland have registered the win twice in their previous three games, and have kept a clean sheet intact in the two.

Finland have been a passive nation in the international football scenario, having never made it to the finals of either the World Cup or the Euro. The squad defied quite a few odds in the Nations League last year, and have already booked a berth in the playoffs, should they fail to make it through the qualifiers. However, things have started to look up for the Finnish outfit.

Israel vs North Macedonia prediction comes ahead of the Euro qualification fifth-round matchup between these two. For this game, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of their performances and recent results. This game will be played on September fifth, at the Toto Turner Stadium in Israel. An interesting game is upon us.

On the negative side, four of Macedonias last six competitive away defeats were to nil. That looks unreal at this moment, so we will see what happens. Because Israel is a good goalscoring team, that stat has to change by scoring a couple of goals. 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.

Eran Zahavi has scored seven of Israels eight ECQ goals four arrived after half-time, which is a superb form. Israel will probably attack from the first minute, hoping that they can secure a good result before the first half ends and then easily finishing the game. North Macedonia will have to take care of him and stop him from scoring again. No injuries are listed so far, so they will attack them with their full force. They are unbeaten for 5 consecutive games at home.

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

Israel vs North Macedonia Prediction

Markku Kanervas men are making a name for themselves on the global stage, and have so far stumbled just once in their last four qualifying matches. Furthermore, the fact that they have slotted six unanswered goals into the back of the net from their previous three games alone, is in itself an indication of their superiority. The visitors have been a dismal bunch in their trips on the road and have been at the losing end in their last two outings in a running. To make matters worse, Greece have never got the better of their foes in their previous visits to this stadium, and have lost four times in their last seven meetings here.

Taking the aforementioned into consideration, Finland are certainly the favorites to come out on top this Thursday. Greece, on the other hand, have been disappointing in their clashes building up to this tie and have managed to bag a win just once in their last five games. It also needs mentioning that the visitors have been admitting defeat in their previous two fixtures in a row, the last of which saw them beaten by Armenia with a 3-2 scoreline, that too on home soil.

North Macedonia vs Finland H2H

Theyve also celebrated a 2-0 win over Norway in the friendly clash and they are expecting this one in a very good momentum. When it comes to playing in front of home fans, FYR Macedonia have booked only one victory and it came in the very last round of the tournament. FYR Macedonia didnt manage to do better than the 5th place in their qualification group, however theyve collected 11 points. Ilija Nestorovski and the lads were pretty productive in front of the oppositions goal and theyve scored 15 goals in the campaign. In the last four matches in the group they managed to avoid the defeat and celebrate two wins.

Currently, Israel is standing at the second place behind the Polish National team. By looking at all of that, an interesting game is underway and the best tip is probably both teams scoring. North Macedonia has lost 2 matches in a row, but they have not seen 3 consecutive defeats since November 2016. They have played five times in their history so far, with Israel winning four times. 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. An interesting thing is that all five matches were won by a slim one-goal margin. 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. 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. 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.
