Germany and North Macedonia will face each other in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification – UEFA Group J game this week. The match at the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena in Duisburg is slated to kick off at 7:45pm UK time on Wednesday.

Germany

Germany have started their 2022 World Cup qualification campaign strongly and have picked up six points out of a possible six. Joachim Low’s side kicked off their Group J campaign with a 3-0 win against Poland at the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena in Duisburg before getting the better of Romania 1-0 away from home at Arena Nationala in Bucharest.

Low’s team will head into the game against North Macedonia as favourites and should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter with ease. Germany are the clear and strong favourites to win the group, and given how they are doing right now, it is hard to see them slip up.

Team News:

Jamal Musiala could be handed a full debut for Germany. Niklas Sule is out with an injury, while Timo Werner could start.

North Macedonia

North Macedonia are third in Group J with three points from two matches. Igor Angelovski’s side kicked off their 2022 World Cup qualification campaign with a 3-2 defeat to Romania away from home, but they bounce back from the loss with a 5-0 hammering of Liechtenstein at the Tose Proeski Arena in Skopje.

Germany are the strongest team in the group, and North Macedonia will know that it will not be easy to pick up all three points from the encounter. However, the Germans only won 1-0 in their last game, and that will give encouragement to Angelovski’s team.

Team News:

Goran Pandev and Ezgjan Alioski will start for North Macedonia.

Key Factors to Consider

  • This is the first time that Germany will meet North Macedonia at senior level.
  • Germany have won 18 World Cup qualifiers in a row
  • North Macedonia’s Aleksandar Trajkovski the joint-leading scorer with three goals.
  • Goran Pandev has scored 36 goals in 116 games for North Macedonia.
  • Germany are at the top of Group J, while North Macedonia are third.

Conclusion

North Macedonia will not be easy pushovers, but Germany have the better team and should pick up all three points in the end.

Prediction: Germany to win 2-0

Best Odds: 9/2
