Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Georgia will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Estonia when they take on North Macedonia in their second group game. The Georgians proved their worth in the opening match of their Nations League campaign, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Igor Angelovski’s troops. Nika Katcharava, who scored the winner against Estonia, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.
North Macedonia, on the other hand, kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 2-1 win over Armenia. Egzjan Alioski, who will play in the Premier League in the 2020/21 season, opened his goal-scoring account against Armenia. The pacey winger is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders, but, taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards at Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena.
Highlighted Team (North Macedonia):
Former Yugoslavian republic North Macedonia became member of both FIFA and UEFA in 1994 and they have been competing on the international stage ever since. The Crveni Risovi rolled over Slovenia (4-1) in their first ever official match and the team recorded their biggest win on November 9, 11996, with the team crushing minnows Liechtenstein 11-1 in Eschen-Mauren.
The North Macedonians have yet to qualify for the finals of a major tournament despite the fact that several high-profile footballers played for the former Yugoslav republic. Goran Pandev is undisputedly the team’s most notable player as he played for the likes of Lazion, Inter, Napoli and Galatasaray during his professional career.
Pandev scored his 28th and 29th goal for North Macedonia in a 3-0 win over Belarus in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. However, Goce Seldloski is the most capped player (100). 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.
