    Slovenia will look to improve their chances of qualifying for Euro 2020 when they visit North Macedonia on Thursday night. The home side are not out of contention for qualification either.

    The home side have picked up eight points from their six games so far, and are just three points behind Slovenia who occupy the final qualification berth. They are also five points behind leaders Poland.

    Their current points tally certainly doesn’t rule them out of making Euro 2020, but a defeat against the visitors would make it hard for them to qualify.

    A 2-0 away win against Latvia ended a four-game winless run in qualification for North Macedonia. It was another tight, low-scoring encounter in qualifying for the home side, as four of their last five games have produced under 2.5 goals.

    Macedonia have lost their last two European Championships qualifiers on home soil but had won their previous six home games in all competitions, having scored at least twice in all the victories.

    Slovenia are in a good position to qualify for next years European Championships. In fact, a win in this clash would keep the visitors in contention to top the group.

    The visitors made a poor start to their qualifying campaign, but have now recorded three straight victories, scoring at least twice. Last time out, they recorded a vital 3-2 home win over Israel.

    Slovenia have a poor away record in qualifying for Euro 2020, as they have won two of their last seven matches on their travels in European Championships qualification. However, they recorded a 5-0 win in Latvia in their last away match. Their recent away qualifiers have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five matches.

    Forebet predicts that this clash will end in a low-scoring draw, which will do neither side’s chance of qualifying for Euro 2020 much good.
