Compression and Favorable Direction Problem (Ex. 11.115, part b)

In this particular example, the system is being compressed, so the system should favor whatever side has the least amount of moles. Yet, the answer shows that neither side is favored. Why is that considering there are 6 moles on the left and 7 moles on the right of the reaction?

Keep in mind that only the moles of gas count.
