Liechtenstein vs Macedonia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 16 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Rheinpark Stadion (Vaduz).
Macedonia will be looking to bounce back from a tough 4-0 defeat to Macedonia in the previous round. They still hold the group destiny in their own hands after previously winning each of three opening games of the campaign. The visitors practically just need to see off the likes of Liechtenstein and Gibraltar in last two outings to secure the top spot and advance to semi-finals with a chance to make their maiden appearance at European Championship.
That’s how big of a motive Igor Angelovski’s men will have on Friday evening when they travel to Rheinpark Stadion to take on Liechtenstein in Vaduz. The hosts did pick up three points in four games thanks to a 2-0 victory over Gibraltar, but they still hold the rock-bottom of the standings. They will hardly move from there being heavy underdogs against both Macedonia and Armenia in last two rounds.
Liechtenstein vs Macedonia: Head-to-head
This will be the fourth head to head meeting in just two years between these two likes.
Macedonia came on top on every single occasion netting 11 goals in the process.
Overall, FYR Macedonia won 7 and drew 1 of 8 meetings with Liechtenstein.
The Red Lynxes notched a 4-1 victory when the two teams met a month ago at Telekom Arena in Skopje.
Liechtenstein vs Macedonia: Prediction
Igor Angelovski has the luxury of an injury-free squad ahead of the trip to Vaduz. This means the Palermo duo Aleksandar Trajkovski and Ilija Nestorovski should both feature the starting line-up just as captain and former Lazio star Goran Pandev (currently plays for Genoa).
The visitors will be highly motivated to claim the spoils and get a step closer to winning the group and moving on to the semi-finals of the League D. We expect them to go strong from the very start which is why we reckon there is a massive value in backing FYR Macedonia to have at least a two-goal cushion at the half time at the odds of 3.30.
Liechtenstein vs Macedonia: Bet Tips
FYR Macedonia -1.5 handicap in the first half @ 3.30 (23/10)
