Macedonia vs Liechtenstein
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Philip II Arena (Skopje).
Macedonia has struck a purple patch in the UNL with wins in both their matches. With 6 points in the group they are 3 points ahead of their opponents.
Igor Angelovski is a happier man at the moment. The Red Lions are roaring past teams in their group. But with second place Liechtenstein visiting, they could not afford to make mistakes and lose their advantage.
The striker Goran Pandev has been playing for his country since 2001. The 35 old was chosen in this squad for UNL because he is a big game player and the top scorer of his country. He has already found the net from a penalty against Armenia.
The game against Armenia ended 2-0 with Pandev and Ezgjan Alioski in the score-sheet. The forward Alioski has scored 2 goals in 2 games making him the top-scorer in the group.
The team managed by Rene Pauritsch has a win and a draw in their UNL campaign. Opening game against Armenia resulted in a 2-1 loss. Armenia scored early and Blue-Reds managed to draw level inside first half. They gifted a penalty to Mkhitaryan who lofted it over the bar. He was relieved of his blemishes when Tigran Barseghyan scored in the 76th minute.
But that lose was compensated by a 2-0 win at home against Gibraltar. Rene’s team showed a complete team performance to edge past their sorry opponents.

Macedonia vs Liechtenstein Prediction
Goals were flowing when these two met before. With Pandev and Alioski in the scene, Lions are all set to improve their goal difference.
Both the teams have scored in their UNL games. Considering their opponents are way below their FIFA rankings, Macedonia have the clear upper hand. Also playing at home is an added advantage.
The Lions have won 3 of their previous 5 games and looks to stamp their authority on the group with another win over the Blue-Reds.
