Germany vs North Macedonia Prediction & Tips
After claiming their 18th consecutive victory in World Cup qualifying matches, Germany’s attention will turn to their historic first meeting against North Macedonia. The German team started the tie without conceding goals against and leading at the end of both halves in their first two games, which is progress – they managed to accumulate only one game without goals against and four games replicating the result of the first half in its nine previous crashes (G4, E4, P1).
Germany conceded just one goal against in the previous Playoff campaign, suggesting they will be a tough team to beat in this clash. In terms of their offensive might, Germany faces this clash knowing that they have scored exactly three goals in four of their last five home games – all against teams that are better ranked than their rival this time around.
Despite claiming a 5-0 home win in their most recent Playoffs match, North Macedonia (# 65 in the FIFA Rankings) have suffered back-to-back losses away from home following their historic win in Tbilisi that secured them their first appearance in the Eurocup. Including that match, North Macedonia haven’t been able to score before halftime in their last three away games.

Players to watch: Timo Werner is the only player to have scored for Germany in three international home games since early 2020 – twice he managed to score the first goal of the engagement. Similarly, veteran forward Goran Pandev is the only player to have scored two goals for North Macedonia away from home during that same period.
