Tip Reasoning

Macedonia kick their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign off on Thursday when they host Latvia, and while the hosts aren’t expected to put in any real challenge for qualification, they have enjoyed a good year or so of performances.

The more competitive format of the UEFA Nations League undoubtedly helped them, but even with that taken into account, they have still done well to lose just one of their last 13 matches. This includes a stunning 1-1 draw away to Italy as well, so they are a nation on the rise at the moment.

Five of Macedonia’s last six outings have ended in victory, although the one remaining match was a 4-0 hammering at Armenia, which dampened spirits considerably. However, with national legend Goran Pandev set to don his country’s colours for the 100th time this Thursday, the home fans will be anticipating a victory.

Latvia can be considered the underdogs of Euro 2020 qualification Group G. They come into this campaign having failed to win their last eight matches, including stalemates home and away against minnows Andorra. They have scored just four goals in this eight game run as well, so it’s not been an exciting time for the Latvians.

This lack of goal-scoring threat could be a real issue coming up against Macedonia. The hosts have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six outings, and at home they have won four of their last five matches to nil.

Latvia, meanwhile, have failed to score in eight of their last 13 away matches and haven’t won away from home since a trip to Andorra in 2016. All things considered, we like the look of Macedonia to Win to Nil on Thursday along with a 2-0 correct score prediction.
