Azerbaijan vs Montenegro Prediction & Match Preview

Azerbaijan vs Montenegro
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 14 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Ivan Laljak Ivic, Zapresic.

Due to unfortunate events in their country, Azerbaijan are going to play their remaining UEFA Nations League matches on foreign ground.

They will “host” Montenegro in Croatia this Saturday, hoping to snatch at least one point and avoid relegation from Group C.

Visitors are hoping to win the race for first position against Luxembourg though, but the most recent form is not looking that promising.

As expected, Montenegro are labelled as warm favorites to win this encounter in Zapresic at 2.20 odds.

Azerbaijan vs Montenegro Head-to-head

These two opponents have met only two times in the past and Montenegro were victorious in both occasions with identical 2-0 result.

The most recent h2h took place just one month ago in Podgorica. Stevan Jovetic and Igor Ivanovic were the goalscorers for Montenegrins.

The other game was a friendly match in 2010 at the same venue.

Azerbaijan vs Montenegro Prediction

Montenegro have ruined a lot of good work and results achieved in the opening three matches with unexpected 1-2 loss at home to Luxembourg. Coach Faruk Hadzibegic has been doing a great job as the head manager after replacing Ljubisa Tumbakovic on this position.

Former Fiorentina and Sevilla striker Stevan Jovetic has been on fire lately when it comes to international matches, despite the poor form in AS Monaco. If you are interested in the goal scorers market, he should definitely be considered as option number one.

Montenegro have played a friendly match against Kazakhstan a couple of days ago, but there was no action or goals in that duel.

Azerbaijan have four points in this group, all of them won in duels against Cyprus. One point in the remaining two games would mean they are safe from relegation.

Team’s morale is probably at low level due to recent events happening in their country. We feel that away win is a solid value bet and it should be backed with a medium stake.
