Getting closer to the top teams is at stake when these two mid-table clubs battle it out. Both will be aiming to improve their league table standing, Sileks in 5th and Rabotnicki in 6th place.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

Sileks form and stats

1-1-1 (win-draw-lost) are the First League numbers at home for Sileks so far this season.

An away draw last time out for Sileks, facing Skendija 79 in a game that ended 1-1. A defeat was the result before that one, 0-1 away at Akademija Pandev.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Sileks have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found four games) they have won two times, drawn two and lost zero.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Sileks as they are travelling to their away game against FK Kozuv Gevgelija in the Macedonian Cup. That match is three days after this one.

Sileks can score goals in their home matches. After 3 league matches they have found the net 6 times. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 5 goals have been conceded.

Rabotnicki form and stats

Playing away, Rabotnicki, who have the fewest conceded goals (4) in First League, have won 1 game, drawn 2 and suffered 1 defeat in the First League this season. Rabotnicki have had a generous will to share for some time now, running a streak of three draws in a row.

Rabotnicki have been frustrated by their lack of goals lately, as they haven't scored in the league since they found the net 184 minutes ago. The Rabotnicki goalkeeper Risto Jankov is collecting clean sheets like a laundry worker. It's been 192 league minutes without conceding a goal, and counting.

Rabotnicki played 0-0 against Akademija Pandev in their previous match. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Borec that ended 0-0.

Rabotnicki are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, one draw and two defeats. From a total of five matches.

Rabotnicki has another fixture away, a Macedonian Cup game, against Struga in just three days. A tough schedule for the visitors!

Goals are few and far between in Rabotnicki's away league games. Only 2 goals from 4 travels. The Rabotnicki defense is a tough nut to crack, having conceded less than half a goal per away game on average (2 goals in 4 games).

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Sileks four wins, four draws and Rabotnicki two victories. As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight games had two or less.
