ARM Vs MCD Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A draw suffices for North Macedonia to see them earn promotion from Group 2.
A successful result against Armenia today could end up making this week a defining moment in North Macedonia’s future travails on the global stage. A win or draw in the side’s culminating group stage fixture of the UEFA Nations League 2020-21 would see it earn promotion into League B for the next edition of the marquee tournament.
Currently sitting one point ahead of Armenia to occupy top spot in the group, 2020 has truly been a remarkable period for North Macedonia. The side earlier last week qualified for the 2021 edition of the Euro for the first time ever to see joyous celebrations erupt across the country.
The footballing team will be looking to keep the party going for the country at the end of the 90 minutes after today’s showdown. Unbeaten in their last 8 outings at the global stage, a record which sees them unbeaten in the UEFA Nations League as well, the visitors are being touted by many to get the job done this Wednesday.
ARM Vs MCD Fantasy Probable Winner
Where a draw would be enough for North Macedonia, anything else than a win for Armenia would see them lose out on qualification. The side will look back to its 4-0 thumping of North Macedonia the last time they welcomed the country as the hosts look to pull off a win today.
This fixture will be contested on level ground, one where we see both the sides walking away with the one point apiece.

North Macedonia Vs Armenia: 2-1
Although they have kept just 1 cleansheet in their last 11 encounters, the only reason Armenia are unbeaten in their last four matches is due to David Yurchenko. The custodian of the side’s goal, he’s clamped down on everything sent down his way to protect his side’s sticks to perfections.
While a cleansheet looks unlikely for either side given the ramifications at stake from the affair, if there’s any side capable off pulling it off, its North Macedonia. With a draw enough for them to earn promotion from the group, the side will thrust all its focus on the defensive side of the game and bolster its backline for the tie.
It sees us opt for the trio of Visar Musliu, Darko Velkovski and Stefan Ristovski who has the one goal and one assist from the country.
Gevorg Ghazaryan’s goal for Armenia in their previous encounter isn’t the only reason he’ll be finding a place in our side. He’s scored twice against today’s opponents, a side he’s always liked coming across.
Artak Grigoryan will join up with him for the upcoming fixture while Ivan Trickovski’s goal against Estonia sees him become the first part of the duo from the visiting side. The partnership is completed by the robust Eljif Elmas.
Scoring twice in his last three appearances for North Macedonia, striker Goran Pandev was an instant pick for us for the upcoming contest.
Armenia will see us opt for the services of the guile filled Tigran Barseghyan with his myriad skill set seeing him contribute to five goals for the side. Sargis Adamyan’s strike for the country against Georgia sees him earn a call into our side as well for the outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Pandev’s one goal and one assist see him captain our side while Tigran is the vice-captain.
Yurchenko, Velkovski, Ristovski, Musliu, Elmas, Grigoryan, Gevorg, Ivan, Tigran, Sargis, Goran
