North Macedonia suffered a heavy 7:0 away loss when coming up against England in a Euro 2024 qualification encounter on June 19. The team is currently on a streak of two defeats. It appears location has little to no impact on how North Macedonia’s previous 10 meetings unfolded. These ended in 6 home victories and 3 wins for the visiting sides. Out of the latest 10 clashes, 1 finished without a winner and in a draw. Four of the preceding five North Macedonia games resulted in over 2.5 goals, with both sides scoring in three of those. Throughout the period, the squad was capable of limiting its opponent to no goals in one match, while being unsuccessful in scoring also in one. The preceding 5 encounters offered no shortage of scoring action as they saw 20 goals in total.

In the previous match, Italy met Netherlands and it finished in a 2:3 win away from home. Playing at home turned out to be of little help across the ten previous Italy games as the hosting party recorded 4 victories and the travelling sides registered 5 triumphs. No more than one of the previous 10 meetings of the squad concluded in a draw. Looking at the team’s previous five encounters, it becomes apparent that three featured over 2.5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Italy’s efforts paid off as the team managed to prevent goals in their net one time and failed to score in only one encounter. During their last five games, the teams involved netted 15 goals in total.
