North Macedonia vs Ukraine match preview

Will Ukraine get their first point of Euro 2024 qualifying on the board?

Back in March, the Blue and Yellows began this campaign losing 2-0 by England at Wembley, rarely threatening the home side’s goal at all.

Since then, Serhiy Rebrov has been appointed as manager; he won 75 caps for Ukraine as a player, subsequently lifting silverware in charge of Dynamo Kyiv, Ferencváros and Al Ain.

His task is to lead his country to a fourth successive European Championships although, with England and Italy also in Group C, this’ll not be an easy task.

Ukraine are guaranteed a play-off place, in the event that they finish third or lower, but still believe a top two finish is possible, with two games against Italy still to come.

Nevertheless, if they are going to upset the odds, this feels must win.

North Macedonia though will be no push-overs, having made their major tournament debut at Euro 2020, subsequently beating both Germany and Italy on the road during World Cup qualification.

Blagoja Milevski’s side also have maximum points on the board one game into this campaign, defeating Malta 2-1 in Skopje, with Elif Elmas and Darko Churlinov the scorers.

So, it certainly won’t be easy but Ukraine’s quality may see them to a vital victory at Toše Proeski Arena.

North Macedonia team news

Aleksandar Trajkovski, who’s been playing in the Saudi Pro League before it became trendy, will lead North Macedonia’s attack, seeking to add to his 20 international goals.

Aberdeen striker Bojan Miovski has missed out due to injury, while Egzon Bejtulai, Enis Bardhi and Elif Elmas are the stars of this team.

Goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski has also been a key performer for Rayo Vallecano in La Liga this season.

Ukraine team news

Ukraine played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Germany in a friendly on Monday, in which Viktor Tsyhankov scored twice.

Captain Andriy Yarmolenko, despite playing in the UAE these days, remains a key player, while Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk will start on the other flank, still searching for his first goal at international level.

Vitalii Mykolenko of Everton and Bournemouth’s Illya Zabarnyi could feature in defence, alongside Serhiy Kryvtsov.

He probably didn’t expect to be joined by Lionel Messi when he arrived at Inter Miami earlier this year.

Long-standing number one goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov retired recently, meaning the gloves are very much up for grabs, with Anatoliy Trubin getting the nod over Andriy Lunin or Heorhiy Bushchan in Bremen on Monday.
