Competition: EURO Nations League
Market: North Macedonia win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to open their Nations League campaign with three valuable points, surprise package North Macedonia will host Armenia on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to secure a one-off showdown against Kosovo next month with a chance to secure a spot at next year’s delayed European Championships, North Macedonia certainly shocked many in Group G. Signing off their campaign with a deserved 1-0 win against Israel on home soil, the Red Lions bounced back from their expected back-to-back defeats at the hands of Poland and Austria and proved they’re no pushover. Now landing back-to-back victories on home soil, Head Coach Igor Angelovski has seen his side only continue to show their strengths in Skopje. Landing what was a shock 2-0 win against Norway, North Macedonia have won eight of their last 10 matchups on home soil, including a 2-0 win against Saturday’s Nations League opponents.
As for the visitors, while the mood around Skopje remains at a continued high, the same cannot be said for an Armenia outfit who endured what was a woeful run during qualifying. Signing off their Group J campaign with what was an embarrassing 9-1 drumming against Italy, the Reds have lost their last three matchups on the bounce and have really shown some worrying issues on their travels. Including that famous hammering at the hands of the former world champions last year, Armenia could also only muster a lacklustre 1-1 draw against whipping boys Liechtenstein back in October. With their recent issues also highlighted by a 3-0 defeat against Finland, there is no doubt that Saturday’s guests should be in for a tricky trip to Skopje.
Bet: North Macedonia 4/6 to beat Armenia in Saturday’s Nations League showdown @ 888sport
