Ukraine vs North Macedonia Predictions

[wptb id="393933" not found ]

A Battle for Euro 2024 Qualification Dreams

Key Stats
– Ukraine remain unbeaten in seven consecutive Euro qualifiers as the designated ‘home’ team.
– North Macedonia’s Eljif Elmas holds a stellar BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.28.
– Ukraine’s ball possession stands at 45%, while North Macedonia holds at 43.4%, indicating a tight midfield battle.

As the Euro 2024 qualifiers heat up, two closely-matched nations in Group C are set to battle it out at Stadion Letna in the Czech Republic. The Ukrainians, led by Sergiy Rebrov, are hoping to bounce back after a close 2-1 defeat to reigning champions Italy. On the other hand, North Macedonia confidently brushed past Malta with a 2-0 victory.

Recent Form and Performances

Ukraine recently halted England’s impeccable qualifying record in front of a spirited Wroclaw audience, securing a 1-1 draw due to a goal by Oleksandr Zinchenko. However, a trip to Italy proved challenging, despite a spirited fight. Two early goals by Inter Milan’s Davide Frattesi set the tone for the Italians. Ukraine did pull one back courtesy of Andriy Yarmolenko, but a win remained elusive. This mixed form has left Ukraine in third place in their group, risking missing out on the Euros for the first time since 2008.

North Macedonia, on the flip side, are still in contention for a consecutive European Championship berth. Their recent performance against Malta was uplifting, with captain Enis Bardhi setting up both goals in the match. Even after a humbling 7-0 defeat to England, the Macedonian spirits remain high, and a win against Ukraine could significantly boost their qualification hopes.

Key Players and Line-ups

Both teams face significant absences in this encounter. Ukraine has been particularly hard-hit, with injuries to key players, including Yarmolenko, Tsygankov, and goalkeeper Lunin. However, Mykhaylo Mudryk could be an exciting inclusion in the starting XI, especially after scoring his first Chelsea goal recently.

For North Macedonia, tensions between coach Milevski and captain Stefan Ristovski mean the latter won’t feature. Additionally, ten-goal Ascoli striker Ilija Nestorovski is out, and the seasoned Aleksandar Trajkovski hasn’t found the net since March 2022. This might lead to a more central role for Serie A title-winner Elmas, supported by Miovski or Milan Ristovski.

Team Analysis and Statistics

Ukraine boast a BettingTips4You Expert Rating average of 6.76, positioning them 34/53 in the competition. Impressively, they have managed to keep possession 45% of the time and have a commendable shot accuracy. A significant statistic to note is Ukraine’s 6.2 successful dribbles per match and an average of 2.4 corners.

On the other side, North Macedonia have an average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 6.63, ranking 42/53. Their ball possession stands at 43.4%, and they take a respectable 9.6 shots per match, indicating a proactive attack. They also average 3.8 corners, showing their intent in the final third.


  1. Win-Draw-Win Market: Given Ukraine’s strong performance as the ‘home’ team and North Macedonia’s inconsistent form, a Ukrainian victory seems the most justified prediction.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Given the attacking tendencies and defensive vulnerabilities of both teams, a 2-1 victory in favour of Ukraine seems plausible.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: With the absence of key goal-scorers for Ukraine, Mykhaylo Mudryk stands out as the potential scorer, especially after his recent form at Chelsea.
  4. Corner Prediction: Considering both teams’ average corner statistics, Ukraine is likely to edge out North Macedonia in the corner tally. Expect around 6 to 7 corners in total for this match.
