North Macedonia Team News

North Macedonia played very well in the World Cup qualifiers. They won 18 points from ten matches, which earned them a place in the playoffs. But that was their maximum at that moment, as they were eliminated in the final by the Portuguese national team.

In the League of Nations, they took third place with 7 points from six matches, achieving two wins, three losses and one draw with a result of 7 goals scored and the same number of conceded goals.

They will want to win the upcoming friendly match to get back on the winning track. But the negative result against Finland does not give them much optimism ahead of Thursday’s match.

Finland Team News

Finland, on the other hand, played inconsistently in the World Cup qualifiers. But in the last match of the group stage of the competition they were defeated by the leading France with a score of 2-0.

Finland also struggled in a relatively easy Nations League group. They finished in second place with just 8 points out of a possible 18, with a record of 2 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws.


So far, five matches have been played between North Macedonia and Finland. The home team won one match, while the guests triumphed three times, one match ended in a draw.

North Macedonia (3-5-2): Stole Dimitrievski – Egzon Bejtulai – Gjoko Zajkov – Visar Musliu – Todor Todoroski – Enis Bardhi – Eljif Elmas – Aleksandar Trajkovski – Ezgjan Alioski – Bojan Miovski – Milan Ristovski

North Macedonia vs. Finland Prediction

Finland is more successful in head-to-head matches with North Macedonia, so we expect that they will not allow themselves to lose in this friendly match either.
