The UEFA Nations League is back with a set of League C fixtures as North Macedonia take on Georgia on Thursday, 9 June. Both teams can pack a punch on their day and will want to win the upcoming game.

Georgia are currently at the top of their group, winning their first two matches. They thrashed Bulgaria by a 5-2 margin last week and will be confident ahead of facing the North Macedonians.

North Macedonia, on the other hand, are in second place and will need to step up this week. They beat Gibraltar 2-0 in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result against Georgia.

North Macedonia vs Georgia Prediction

North Macedonia pulled off a comfortable victory over Gibraltar, but will be up against a more formidable opponent this week. The likes of Alioski and Elmas have plenty of top-flight experience and will need to step up on Thursday.

Georgia, meanwhile, can pack a punch on their day and were exceptional against Bulgaria. But North Macedonia are the better team on paper and should be able to win the game.

Prediction: North Macedonia 2-1 Georgia
