North Macedonia – Gibraltar Tips and Odds for June 12, 17:00 UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE.
North Macedonia – Gibraltar Preview
- Despite suffering a disastrous 3-0 loss to Georgia on UEFA Nations League (UNL) matchday three, North Macedonia should be a certainty to bounce back instantly, and make good on the 141-place chasm that separates them from opponents Gibraltar in FIFA’s current rankings. Simply put, failure is not an option here, with a second promotion in three editions on the line.
- Suitably wounded, North Macedonia will also look to improve further on the result of their only prior home H2H, when they ran out 4-0 winners back in November 2018. That formed part of their unbeaten UNL record at the Toše Proeski Arena in Skopje prior to the Georgia defeat (W5, D1), with every win coming after a half-time lead.
- As for visitors Gibraltar, they remain firm favourites to finish bottom and endure a relegation play-out. That is despite coming from behind to claim a maiden Group C4 point against Bulgaria on matchday three – representing their first recovery after conceding first since October 2018.
- That same month also delivered their only competitive away win to date against a team currently sitting in FIFA’s top-150 (1-0 vs Armenia). Eleven straight competitive away losses to such teams followed since, and the tail end of that sequence is particularly galling, with the last four of those mismatches witnessing successive losing margins of 4+ goals!
- Players to watch: Enis Bardhi has opened the scoring between the 20th-29th minute in two of the last three H2Hs, all of which have seen North Macedonia win by an even-numbered margin. As for Gibraltar, Reece Styche remains their last away scorer, though a 4-1 defeat last March remains the ‘best’ result for his side across his three prior goalscoring internationals!
- Hot stat: Gibraltar have conceded between the 9th and 12th minute in their last three away games.
