This contest is the second-last friendly for both nations before the year comes to a close, as neither will be participating in the 2022 World Cup later this month.

North Macedonia marginally missed out on a spot in Qatar after they lost 2-0 to Portugal in a qualifying playoff final, shortly after claiming a historic 1-0 victory over Italy in the playoff semi-finals.

They previously impressed in Group J of UEFA qualifying, finishing second behind group winners Germany with 18 points after 10 matches.

After losing to Portugal in March, Die Mannschaft endured an inconsistent Nations League campaign between June and September. They initially made a decent start, collecting seven points from a possible 12, but successive defeats without scoring against Georgia and Bulgaria forced them to settle for third place in League C Group 4.

Blagoja Milevski’s side suffered a third successive defeat when they lost 1-0 to Saudi Arabia through an 85th-minute winner from Saleh Al-Shehri, in a friendly game towards the end of October.

Finland failed to advance to the playoff rounds in 2022 World Cup qualifying after they finished third in Group D, just one point behind Ukraine in second spot and seven behind group winners France.

They collected 11 points after winning three and drawing two of their eight games, picking up two points more than the previous campaign four years ago despite having played two matches fewer.

Markku Kanerva has since guided his side to just two victories in their last eight international matches across all competitions, both of which were against Montenegro in League B Group 3 of the UEFA Nations League.

North Macedonia vs. Finland Head to head

These two nations have previously met on five occasions in two competitions, where North Macedonia have claimed one victory while Finland have won three, and they have drawn once. Finland have scored 11 goals and conceded two. They played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in a friendly.
