Following Friday night’s results, it’s been confirmed that these two sides will remain in League C.
North Macedonia’s slim promotion hopes were extinguished last time out, beaten 2-0 at Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena by run-away leaders Georgia.
The Red Lynxes have enjoyed a momentous couple of years, qualifying for Euro 2020 and then beating both Germany and Italy on the road in qualifiers.
However, Blagoja Milevski’s team have struggled for consistency in this group, their only wins coming against whipping boys Gibraltar.
The same can be said of Bulgaria, who ensured their survival in the third-tier by demolishing Gibraltar on Friday.
Valentin Antov, Kiril Despodov, Radoslav Kirilov, Iliyan Stefanov and Marin Petkov all on target in a 5-1 drubbing in Razgrad.
Nevertheless, that was the Lions first victory in this group, having only won three of their previous 30 competitive internationals beforehand.
So, North Macedonia are firm favourites to claim the points at Toše Proeski National Arena.
