North Macedonia vs Slovenia Match Preview
Both of these former Yugoslav republics will be hopeful of appearing at Euro 2020, but neither may get the win on Thursday that would boost their qualification hopes.
Along with Poland, Austria and Israel, these teams are vying for the two places available at next summer’s tournament from Group G, while North Macedonia know that if they miss out on an automatic berth they are guaranteed a shot at the play-offs by virtue of their achievements in the inaugural UEFA Nations League.
Although North Macedonia’s two wins in this group so far came against whipping boys Latvia, they have also gained creditable away 1-1 draws with Slovenia and Israel to keep themselves in contention.
Slovenia, meanwhile, have improved since their players got used to the methods of manager Matjaz Kek since his appointment in late November last year for his second spell in charge.
Having originally left the role in 2011 after taking Slovenia to the previous year’s World Cup, Kek had a successful time with Croatian club Rijeka and has certainly lifted his national team during the course of 2019 – being just two points behind group leaders Poland and in an automatic qualifying position going into this game.
After three consecutive wins it is easy to see why Slovenia are favourites here, but their away record is not the strongest and they may have to settle for a point in Skopje.
