Liechtenstein – statistics & current form
It takes around an hour by car to drive all over the country. Only Vatican City and San Marino Monaco have a smaller population in Europe – accordingly, the national team of the Principality can be described as one of the last football dwarfs.
Hardly any professionals in Martin Stocklasa’s squad
The Liechtenstein Football Association does not even have its own league because the club teams are allowed to play in Switzerland. Not enough teams eat for a league of their own and the difference in level would simply be too big. With the capital club FC Vaduz there is only one professional club.
A number of the players in the squad of head coach Martin Stocklasa cannot call themselves professionals. Many players play in lower-class leagues and have a regular job. The international matches are accordingly the absolute highlights and an opportunity to play against absolute world-class footballers.

Without a win for a year
The last win in an international match for the Liechtenstein national team was almost exactly a year ago. The last success came on October 7, 2020, also a year and a day before the duel with North Macedonia. The 2-1 win in Luxembourg was surprisingly surprising.
Since then, the principality has completed twelve international matches, ten of which ended in defeat. Sometimes the Stocklasa-Elf suffered heavy defeats (0: 7 against Switzerland, 1: 5 against the Faroe Islands), but time and again they were able to achieve respectable successes (only 2: 0 against Germany).
In the last international match, thanks to goal scorer Noah Frick (son of record player Mario Frick), a 1-1 draw was made in Armenia – the first point win for Liechtenstein in this group. Despite the home advantage and recently stronger performances, a successful forecast of a surprise is not necessarily to be expected at Liechtenstein against North Macedonia.
Expected formation of Liechtenstein:
Büchel – Göppel, Hofer, Malin, Kaufmann, Wolfinger – Hasler, Sele – Noah Frick – Kardesoglu, Yanik Frick

North Macedonia – statistics & current form
The year 2021 will be fondly remembered for North Macedonian football. The landlocked country in south-eastern Europe has almost two million inhabitants and experienced the very personal summer fairy tale with the latest qualification for a European championship. Although the trip ended after three preliminary round games without winning a point, head coach Igor Angelovski has immortalized himself in his home country.
New coach after almost six years
With the sensational victory against Germany in March as well as participation in the European Championship, coach Igor Angelovski “shut up his critics” according to his own statements. After almost six years in office, however, they parted ways and the previous coach of the U21 national team, Blagoja Milevski, succeeded him.
He makes his debut at the September Trippel. On the positive side, the 50-year-old was still unbeaten. On the negative side, however, that he has not yet celebrated a victory. In all three qualifying matches against Armenia, Iceland and Romania, points were shared.

Macedonia only plays the role of hunter
North Macedonia, which was playful due to the lack of victories, has a very good starting position and is currently in fourth place in the table with nine points. With only two points behind Armenia, the playoffs are still within reach. Another draw or even a defeat in the Principality would definitely mean the end of World Cup hopes.
Despite the recent missed victories and the fact that national hero Goran Pandev is no longer available, the squad with players like Naples legionnaire Elijf Elmas, Arijan Ademi and Stefan Ristovski (both Dinamo Zagreb) as well as Ezgjan Alioski (Al-Ahli) much more populated. In order for Liechtenstein to offer lucrative odds against North Macedonia, a tip on a handicap success is recommended.
Expected formation of North Macedonia:
Dimitrievski – Alioski, Musliu, Velkovski, Ristovski – Spirovski, Kostadinov – Churlinov, Bardhi, Elmas – Ristovski
