Liechtenstein - N.Macedonia
Liechtenstein are at the bottom of the group with just one point. However, they shouldn t be underestimated - the second-placed Armenia dropped 2 points in the last round. Everything looks "normal" after the first half as Armenia had the lead. But the fans ib Yerevan were shocked in the second half when Noah Frick equalized in the finish. Armenia had 28 shots, (10 of them on target) and managed 80% of the possession, but Liechtenstein surprised the favorites. Coach Martin Stocklasa has most of the players available.
North Macedonia will try to take three points from this match in order to stay competitive in the battle for the second place in the group. But the atmosphere in the national team isn t at highest level after the last results. The Lions have dropped six points on the last three matches. The Macedonians now are on the 4th place with 9 points.Coach Blagoja Milevski, who replaced Igor Angelovski after the European Championship, is under heavy pressure. The Macedonian national team are yet to win a match under Milevski. He has some additional issues ahead of this match as three important players are sidelined - Visar Musliu and Tihomir Kostadinov are suspended, while Enis Bardhi is injured. Milevski has no adequate replacements.
I expect Liechtenstein to cover the handicap.
