Betting suggestion:

Macedonia wants to enter the qualifying zone, so playing at home, it is important to be able to show good football, so they have the control of the duel. The visitors are trying to stay within the qualifying zone, so even a draw away from home will be considered a great result. This tends to be a truncated game with little chance of goals, so we bet there will be no more than 2.5 goals in the match.
