Georgia and North Macedonia will face off in the match of the 5th round of the group stage of the UEFA Nations League in the framework of the C League. Which of the leaders of group 4 will be stronger?
In the current draw of the League of Nations Georgia performs very convincingly, rightfully occupying the first position in Group 4. In the three opening matches Georgia did not lose a single point, successively coping with Gibraltar (4-0), Bulgaria (5-2) and Northern Macedonia (3-0), and in the fourth round left the field for the first time without three points scored, parting in peace with Bulgaria (0-0). Before the reporting match Georgia is three points ahead of the second-placed Northern Macedonia.
The 0-3 defeat in the third round by the Georgian national team is the only one for Northern Macedonia in the current group stage. In the rest of the fights she managed to replenish her points reserves. North Macedonia has twice managed Gibraltar (2-0 and 4-0), and in the first round match it went world with Bulgaria (1-1). To stay in the fight for entry into the B League, North Macedonia needs to beat Georgia.
Statistics and figures:
- Georgia has three wins with one draw;
- North Macedonia lost in one round out of four;
- In the first round North Macedonia lost to Georgia 0-3.
Northern Macedonia will only be satisfied with victory, so I propose to bet on its success, but with the reinsurance that it will not yield.
