North Macedonia vs Austria Match Preview
North Macedonia are among the fastest-improving international teams in Europe – and backed to stay ahead of Austria in Euro 2020 Qualifying Group G by holding them to a draw.
The country whose name had the ‘North’ prefix added in February to resolve a dispute with Greece have never contested a major tournament since their independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991, but that could all change next year.
Not only have North Macedonia started this campaign brightly, they have also secured a play-off place from the bottom tier of the UEFA Nations League which means either they, Georgia, Belarus or Kosovo will make it through to next summer’s finals.
And judging by the form of Igor Angelovski’s side, they may well be favourites among that quartet – if they even need to take the play-off route at all because they could yet finish in the top two of a group that also comprises Poland, Israel, Austria, Slovenia and Latvia.
Austria, meanwhile, made a disappointing start with successive defeats to Poland and Israel before Friday’s consequently important home match against Slovenia (result not known at the time of writing).
With North Macedonia having been so difficult to beat over the last 15 months (see stats above) we will back them to claim a point that would keep them right in the qualification mix.
