Cyprus vs Montenegro
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Neo GSP Stadium.
Loukas Hadjiloukas’s men were included in a tough Grouop I in the recently concluded Euro Qualifiers, that boasted of the likes of Belgium, Russia etc – both of whom had made it to the final eight or better in the 2018 World Cup.
Still, Giorgos Merkis and his boys secured a fourth place finish, and though they missed out on a ticket to the continental showdown, they left the tournament with their heads held high.
Meanwhile, the Brave Falcons had an embarrassing outing in the qualifying competition for the Euros. Not only did they finish dead last in the group, but they went through the whole contest without a single win, and scored the least number of goals as well as conceded the most.
On top of that, they are also one of the weakest teams on the road in the whole of Europe.
By the looks of things, expect Cyprus to be the better team on the pitch this Saturday.

Cyprus vs Montenegro: Prediction
The Falcons had one of the worst performances of any team in the Euro Qualifiers the last year, as they scored a total of three goals in the entire competition, and conceded 22 in return – with a 100% winless record.
Moreover, they are also one of the worst teams on the road in Europe. In fact, they are on a three-game losing run in such fixtures, and have recorded a combined scorecard of 12-0 in the process.
In addition, they have had a total of four wins away from home in the past seven years, and three of these victories had come against Moldova, Kazakhstan, and Lithuania.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had a far better showing in their qualifying campaign to the Euros, and they have also performed inspiringly well at home lately. In fact, they were unbeaten in nine of their preceding fourteen appearances in home turf.
For the reasons, expect Cyprus to deliver a good game this Saturday against Montenegro.
