England on top in Skopje

England conclude their European Championship qualifying campaign with a trip to Skopje from which they should return home with three points.

Gareth Southgate’s side have won six of their seven qualifiers, scoring 21 goals and conceding just three.

The reverse fixture in June ended in a comprehensive 7-0 victory for England, with North Macedonia completely outclassed at Old Trafford.

The home side have not scored in their last three meetings with England and have lost their last two qualifiers, so we expect another comfortable win for England.

Kane can add to record tally

Harry Kane stretched his record as England’s leading goalscorer to 62 goals in 88 matches in the 2-0 win over Malta on Friday, taking his tally to eight goals in the qualifying campaign.

The 30-year-old marksman has also scored a remarkable 21 goals in 16 games for Bayern Munich so far this season. 

Form and history, plus the fact he takes England’s penalties, make him favourite to score first against North Macedonia, who have conceded 19 goals in seven qualifiers.

Dominance from Three Lions to be shown

In the reverse fixture, England scored seven times and also had seven corners. They had six corners against Malta on Friday and have scored two goals or more in six of their seven qualifying matches.

For that reason the first two legs of our bet builder are England to score 2+ goals and force 6+ corners. 

North Macedonia have also picked up 20+ booking points in every qualifying match bar one, and we expect them to do the same in this one up against the quality of England’s key attacking threats.
