North Macedonia vs England prediction
North Macedonia have failed to recapture the giant-killing magic that saw them claim the scalp of big teams on their way to the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Their quest for a place at the Euros appears to be in peril as they currently sit second from bottom in Group C after losing 3 of the 5 qualifiers, including a 7-0 mauling in this reverse game when they travelled to England on matchday 2. They will be hoping for better tidings here at home where they have been relatively decent, narrowly losing to Ukraine and getting a credible draw against Italy in their last home match.
The visitors England have pretty much sealed qualification after an impressive campaign that has seen them go unbeaten in 6 matches with 5 wins and a draw. Gareth Southgate’s men are expected to make light work of the group whipping boys Malta on matchday 7 and this match is more of a formality. The Three Lions were in imperious form against Italy in the last round as captain Harry Kane’s double and Marcus Rashford’s goal in between them completed a comprehensive 3-1 win at Wembley. Southgate is expected to give his big guns a breather and allow more of the second-stringers to get minutes here with their ticket to the Euros already in the bag.
All said and done, we still expect a competitive game here regardless of who will be donning the jerseys for the respective teams. North Macedonia will be playing for pride in front of their home fans while the England squad will want to finish this campaign in impressive style to cap their qualification. England have the better team on paper. We expect them to be as aggressive as they have been in these qualifiers and we are backing them to pick up the win as our opening North Macedonia vs England prediction here.

Our North Macedonia vs England predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: England Win – Tip 2
England have been in terrific form in these qualifiers winning all but one of their 6 games thus far. They will be looking to carry this winning momentum into the tournament and we therefore expect them to approach this game in pretty much the same fashion as they have done for the other games.
North Macedonia are simply not the same team that was sending shockwaves in the football world a couple of years back. They were a no match for the visitors earlier in this campaign as they went down 7-0 at Wembley
We expect it to be closer this time round, but we still fancy England to pick up the win here and we recommend 1xBet for this market

Prediction 3: Over 8.5 Corners
As previously stated, this is likely to be an open-ended affair with both teams having a go at it. As a result we can expect lots of goalmouth action on either end that could possibly result in a lot of corners.
North Macedonia have had at least 5 corners in all three of their Euro qualifiers home matches; England had 7 corners the last time these teams met.
With this in mind, we feel there is value in backing this match to have at least 9 total corners as our final North Macedonia vs England prediction
