Italy manager, Luciano Spalletti and his charges have not had the best of qualifying series for the 2024 European championship so far, but they have another chance to put their campaign back on track when they welcome North Macedonia. The Azzuris have 10 points, six adrift of England who are group leaders and three behind Ukraine who are second in the group.
To give themselves a chance to qualify for next summer’s competition, the Italians have to do all it takes to earn all the three points against North Macedonia. Spalletti have rang some changes in the squad with the invitation of the likes of Ricardo Orsolini and Scalvini and he will be hoping that the new faces can complement the efforts of the old heads.
North Macedonia are harbouring hopes of their own as it concerns the qualification for the European championships. They currently have 7 points to their name, and a win will get them level with Italy on 10 points.
However, winning against the Italians who are in a desperate situation away from home is a mountain too big to climb for the Macedonians, and given the quality within the Italy ranks, and the fact that they will have the backing of their fans, Italy are favourites to win as our main Italy vs North Macedonia prediction.

Prediction 2: Over 8.5 Corners
As we have established, the Italians are condemned to win or kiss their Euro 2024 ambitions goodbye. Hence they will be firing from all cylinders from the get go in this match. The Italians will subject their visitors to endless attacks, meaning the Macedonians will be forced to defend their goal.And as we have seen with the visitors, they like to soak up the pressure when playing against better opponents leading to high number of corner kicks. As a result, we expect this match to produce a high number of corners kicks. And we recommend Paripesa for their high odds for the corner markets!

Prediction 3: 1st Goal – Italy
Italy are known to score a lot of goals, instead, they are well reputed for the art of defending. That seems not to be true with the attacking talents within the Italy squad. So far, they have scored 11 goals in the qualification series and given the importance of this match, they are a good bet open scoring in this encounter. In fact in their last game against, they scored the first goal with a qurter of an hour played. And against a less fancied opposition, it will be easier for them to open scoring again. Therefore, we are backing Italy to score the first goal as our final Italy vs North Macedonia prediction for this fixture.
