Squad Comparison

Italy

As if failing to make the 2018 World Cup was not painful enough for Italy, a second successive campaign watching on from home with the European trophy already in the cabinet would be nothing short of disastrous for Roberto Mancini and co. A number of autumnal wobbles contributed to the Azzurri finishing second in Group C – two points behind leaders and fellow unbeaten side Switzerland – as Mancini’s side could only post one win from their final five group matches, drawing four of them.

While the Euro 2020 winners were being held to a goalless stalemate by Northern Ireland on the final matchday, Switzerland put four unanswered goals past Bulgaria to force Italy to settle for a spot in the playoffs, and their path to the finals is far from straightforward. The Azzurri have never failed to make it to the World Cup twice on the bounce – quickly qualifying in 1962 after missing out on a place in the 1958 edition – and they are one of two playoff sides to navigate their group phase unbeaten, the other being Ukraine.

Italy Playing XI

Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bastoni, Mancini, Emerson; Jorginho, Barella, Verratti; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne

North Macedonia

Fresh from qualifying for their first-ever major tournament as an independent nation at Euro 2020, North Macedonia are in with a real shot of participating in their maiden World Cup campaign after finishing as the best of the rest in Group J. Germany ran away with it as expected – but not before being shocked 2-1 by Blagoja Milevski’s side back in March – and a pair of dominant victories over Armenia and Iceland in their final two group games saw North Macedonia pip Romania to second place by just one point.

Failing to take a single point back home from their Euro 2020 campaign has not led to a downturn in spirit from the North Macedonians, who have lost just one of their last seven in World Cup Qualifying and have kept an eye-catching four clean sheets in that stretch. Taking 10 points from the last 12 on offer on the road in World Cup Qualifying is also cause for optimism for North Macedonia – who have amassed 13 goals in that run – and not since November 2016 have the world’s 67th-ranked nation failed to find the back of the net away from home in qualification.

North Macedonia Playing XI

Dimitrievski; S. Ristovski, Velkovski, Musliu, Alioski; Nikolov, Ademi, Bardhi; Churlinov, M. Ristovski, Trajkovski

Match Prediction for Italy vs North Macedonia

While the Italian old guard of Bonucci and Chiellini both have their injury problems to overcome, the absence of two key names in Elmas and Kostadinov for North Macedonia will play right into the Azzurri’s hands. Milevski’s side command respect for making it this far with plenty of goals en route, but Italy are yet to suffer a single World Cup Qualifying defeat at home and that is unlikely to change here, with the European champions eyeing a straightforward route into the playoff final.

Italy are in an awkward position. Having won the Euros last year, there is a good chance they will miss out on the World Cup this year. Manager Roberto Mancini deserves credit for lifting the morale of the side and leading them to Euros success, although a World Cup without Italy doesn’t sound right. North Macedonia, on the other hand, have done well in recent games. Long-serving attacker and star player Goran Pandev retired after the Euros, and it will be interesting to see who takes his place.
