North Macedonia – Armenia Preview

  • Three months after their inaugural European Championship finals appearance didn’t quite go to plan, North Macedonia’s push for a maiden World Cup finals berth continues with the first of two home fixtures during the September international break. Their storied history also begins a new chapter under Blagoja Milevski, who has made the step up from the under-21 team to the national side after the resignation of Igor Angelovski.
  • Surprisingly, the hosts were one of just seven nations across all groups to register at least nine goals in the first set of World Cup Qualification (WCQs) matches (W2, L1), capped off with a stunning win in Germany. They’ll still be familiar with opponents Armenia after the home side on the day won each of their two UEFA Nations League clashes in 2020 by a one-goal margin. In fact, all five H2Hs played across the last decade have been taken out by the team to host.
  • Few Armenians would have expected their nation to be on top of Group J after three matches let alone with a perfect record, especially after they managed just two victories from ten attempts in the previous WCQ cycle (D1, L7). In fact, the visitors are already more than halfway to eclipsing their biggest points haul (13) in any WCQ tournament!
  • Despite failing to score before HT across their last six outings, Armenia continue to punch above their weight on a consistent basis. A shock 1-1 draw in Croatia during the previous international window boosted their record from their last seven starts as pre-match underdogs (against all opposition) to an outstanding W4, D2, L1.
  • Players to watch: North Macedonia’s Elif Elmas and Armenia’s Tigran Barseghyan both recorded second half goals in each of their last two WCQ appearances.
  • Hot stat: Both teams have completed at least 27 internationals each since being involved in a 0-0 result, including at least five score draws each.
