Denmark vs Montenegro: Preview and Prediction

Denmark vs Montenegro
European Qualifiers – 2018 World Cup
Date: Tuesday, 11th October 2016
Kick-off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Telia Parken, Copenhagen.

Denmark were unfortunate against Poland on Saturday evening, they lost 3-2 on the road. They will be hosting an inform Montenegro at Telia Parken on Tuesday night as they hope to return to winning ways.

Denmark tried so hard on Saturday night, but they were unable to level things against Poland. They went 3-0 down in the first half of the game courtesy of a hat-trick from Roberto Lewandowski. K. Glik’s own goal in the 49th minute and Y. Poulsen’s goal in the 69th minute pulled 2 goal back for the Danish team but it wasn’t enough to snatch a point for them.

Meanwhile, Montenegro went top of the table after a 5-0 rally against low rated Kazakhstan on Saturday night. They were on fire as Tomasevic, Vukcevic, Jovetic, Beciraj and Savic were all on score sheet. They will be hoping for a win in this fixture to maintain their lead in group E.

Denmark vs Montenegro: Head to Head Statistics

  • Both teams have only met once against each other, they only met in June last year which Denmark won 2 goals to 1.
  • This game will be the first competitive game between the two nations.

Denmark vs Montenegro: Prediction

Denmark are the better side between the two teams, also they have the advantage of playing at home soil. The Danish side have won 3 of their last 5 games, they have also kept clean sheets in in 3 of their last 5 games. Furthermore, Denmark have scored at least 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 games.

Beside the impressive win against Kazakhstan, Montenegro have been on a poor form. They have failed to win 4 of their last 5 games with 2 defeats and 2 draws. They have failed to score above a goal in 4 of their last 5 games.

I see Denmark as the winners of the day, while they are capable of keeping a clean sheet in the game.
