  • Competition: UEFA Nations League
  • Date: 26th September 2022
  • Kickoff: 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Philip II Arena

With first and last place in this group already claimed by Georgia and Gibraltar respectively, this match will be about who finishes second. Having won their last two home matches with an aggregate score of 7:1, the hosts are ahead in the race for the second place.

The highlight of the recent matches in which North Macedonia has participated has been the fact that at least one team has always been without a goal. Of the last 15 games in all competitions, a bet on "both teams score=no" has been won a record 12 times. It remains to be seen whether Monday's game will end in similar fashion.

The visitors, ‘’Bulgaria’’ meanwhile scored five against Gibraltar on Friday evening in what was their first win of the campaign and would be hoping for more of the same here. Unlike the hosts, the recent fixtures of Mladen Krstajić's men have not been so one-sided, as both sides scored in six of the last eight games.

North Macedonia vs Bulgaria betting tips: BTTS=NO

Since Monday's match will be only the second meeting of these two famous nations, it is difficult to rate them in terms of head-to-head encounters.

The visitors will be boosted by their 5-1 win last time out, but the hosts won't want to put their second place on the line, so a draw could be the outcome.

Best Tip: BTTS=NO

North Macedonia Team News

The hosts will still have to do without their captain Stefan Ristovski, who was dropped from the squad due to an injury.

In addition to the 30-year-old defender, who has scored two goals in 76 games for North Macedonia, Erdal Rakip and Dejan Iliev are also on head coach Blagoja Milevski's list of absentees.

Aleksandar Trajkovski got his 80th cap off the bench last time out, but the 30-year-old, who has 20 international goals, could lead the line here.

Bulgaria Team News

Bulgaria didn’t pick any injuries in their comfortable 5-1 win over Gibraltar last time out, so it won’t be a surprise if head coach Mladen Krstajić decides to continue with the wining team.

With that in mind, the front three of Kiril Despodov, Stefanov and Radoslav Kirilov who were all on the scoresheet in that game should be able to start in the final third, while Daniel Naumov would be aiming for his 5th cap in goal.
