Struga vs Shkupi

North Macedonia
1X2 / Moneyline
Pick: 1
Odds: 3.26
Stake: 1

Match date: 22/08/2021

This is the derby in the Macedonian First Division. Both teams played in Europe this summer and both were eliminated - Struga in the first round (from Liepaja), Shkupi in the second (they were better than Llapi in the first round, but lost to Santa Clara in the second)

Struga started the new season with one victory and two draws. They managed to beat Pelister at home, while shared the points with Akademija Pandev and Rabotnicki, both away. Shkupi, meanwhile, have two wins and one draw after the first three rounds. They were better than Makedonija Gjorce Petrov and Pelister, while drew with Bregalnica in Stip.

I expect an interesting match here, but I think Struga are closer to the victory. There are three reasons for my pick. First is the home advantage, something very important in Macedonian football. Next, Shkupi are very handicapped as one of the key players Freddy Alvarez is suspended. The Costarican international has played all 7 matches this season. He also played 32 from 33 league matches last season. And the third and last reason is connect with the recent mutual results. Last season the two teams faced three times and Struga were superior - two wins and one draw. I expect the positive series to continue.

WIN Score: 4:2 Profit: +2.26
