Match preview

Despite only meeting for the first time ever in September 2020, North Macedonia and Georgia have quickly become familiar foes.

Two years ago, these two clashed three times in 65 days, first playing out a pair of 1-1 draws in the Nations League.

Then came their most famous encounter of all, with North Macedonia winning 1-0 in the Euro 2020 play-off final.

That saw the Red Lynxes qualify for a first-ever major tournament, while the Crusaders agonisingly missed out on the same achievement.

Georgia did get some revenge as this rivalry was rekindled back in June, leaving Skopje 3-0 winners.

Budu Zivzivadze, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Otar Kiteishvili all on target at Toše Proeski National Arena.

Overall, Willy Sagnol’s side have been outstanding during this campaign.

IN the summer, they also hammered Gibraltar 4-0 and Bulgaria 5-2, before Georgia’s winless run was ended by Bulgaria battling to a goalless draw in Tbilisi.

Nevertheless, they’re still sitting pretty at the top of Group C4, needing just a point here to secure promotion.

Thus, if North Macedonia are going to climb up to League B for the first time ever, this is simply must win.

In June, Blagoja Milevski’s team drew 1-1 in Bulgaria, whilst also beating Gibraltar twice, 2-0 away and 4-0 at home.

Earlier in the year, far more memorably, the Lions ousted Italy from the World Cup play-offs, before their dream was shattered by Portugal five days later.

Despite having also won a qualifier in Germany and featured at a European Championships in 2021, North Macedonia look set to remain stranded down in Nations League C.

The 54,000 capacity Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena will be packed to the rafters, so will the home fans be celebrating promotion?
