North Macedonia vs Liechtenstein Prediction & Match Preview

North Macedonia

Liechtenstein

28 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

North Macedonia will be aiming to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Romania when they take on Liechtenstein at National Arena Toshe Proeski. 


North Macedonia continue to struggle on the travels, but keep in mind that they recorded six wins in the previous seven home games in all competitions. 

Arijan Ademi, who scored as a substitute in the defeat to Romania, is widely expected to return to the starting XI.

Liechtenstein, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Mikhtarian-less Armenia. 

Since the Blues-Reds did not have a single goal attempt in their opener, we believe that there is a big value in betting on North Macedonia. 

In each of the previous six meetings between the two national teams North Macedonia emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered this time out.

Team News:

North Macedonia manager Igor Angelovski may opt to rotate his resources somewhat, as his side now host limited opposition, sandwiched between fixtures against Romania and Germany.

Serie A stars Eljif Elmas and Iljia Nestorovski could start again on Sunday though, with their fellow Italy-based colleague and captain Goran Pandev perhaps standing down, as his ageing legs may not withstand three starts in the space of a week.

Dinamo Zagreb's Arijan Ademi came into the international period on a high from being involved in the Europa League slaying of Tottenham Hotspur and scored as a substitute in Bucharest last time out, so may feature from the start.

In attack, meanwhile, Real Mallorca forward Aleksandr Trajkovski - another goalscoring sub in the Romanian capital - is in contention for a place should Pandev be rested.

For the visitors, there are unlikely to be many changes due to the lack of squad depth available to head coach Martin Stocklasa, so teenage forward Noah Frick - son of former Serie A striker Mario Frick, who is still Liechtenstein's all-time top scorer on 16 goals - could again team up with older brother Yanick Frick in attack.

Skipper and Swiss Super League regular, FC Thun's Nicolas Hasler is the principality's currently-active top scorer - with a meagre five goals from his 73 caps to date - and should feature in midfield, alongside Aron Sele.

North Macedonia possible starting lineup:
Dimitrievski; Ristovski, Musliu, Velkovski, Alioski; Spirovski, Ademi, Bardhi, Elmas; Nestorovski, Trajkovski

Liechtenstein possible starting lineup:
Hobi; Goppel, Kaufmann, Malin, Yildiz; Meier, Hasler, Sele, Kuhne, Y. Frick; N. Frick
