North Macedonia hosts Austria in round 4 of Euro Qualification. The match will be played on Monday, June 10th at National Arena Toshe Proeski (Skopje)
The progress of the Macedonians in recent years is visible to the naked eye. Even at the last World Cup, they managed to amaze the football world when Israel was beaten away and a draw was gained in a match with the Italians. After that, Macedonia confidently won its group in the Nations League, gaining five victories in 6 games. And the team started very confidently in the current Euro qualifiers. The Macedonians beat Latvia without any problems at home, and they managed to win back in the game with Slovenia, losing 1-0 in the course of the meeting. Generally, Macedonia successfully held back the onslaught of Slovenia in that match, having stood out the squall of the opponent's attacks.

It would seem that the Austrians got out of the crisis. After failures in the World Cup qualifiers, they managed to win 6 of 7 friendly matches. And not only Russians and Slovenes were beaten, but even Germans. However, the Nations League followed, and Austria failed to cope with the Bosnians in the head-to-head matches. And the team scored only 3 goals in that tournament - all of them were scored to the net of failed Northern Ireland. Moreover, the Austrians started badly in the current Euro qualifiers, losing to the Poles and Israelis.
In my opinion, Austria is unjustifiably exposed as an obvious favorite. Moreover, it plays poorly away. In the previous World Cup qualifiers, the Austrians failed to cope with the main competitors on the road, and they lost to the Bosnians in the Nations League. In the current qualifying campaign, Austria lost the first away match and conceded as many as 4 goals. Macedonians are confident at home and have a 6-match winning streak. And they smashed 19 goals in six last home games. Yes, only Norway was one of the strongest contenders in this period. However, you can recall the qualifying campaign for the World Cup. Then the Macedonians lost to the Italians and Spaniards at home but scored 3 goals to their nets. The Austrians are superior to their opponent in the class, but this is not enough. Macedonia is well-organized in defense and is able to withstand the onslaught of the Austrians.
Prediction for the match: Macedonia to win with +0.5 handicap
