England vs Montenegro Prediction
Montenegro lost on the road, in their most recent away tie, which was also a part of this same competition. Within the first half-hour itself, the result of the fixture was a foregone conclusion. The hosts, Kosovo, netted two goals without conceding any, to secure the victory.
English meanwhile, after their loss against the Czech Republic, responded in a fantastic manner to get back on track. One after the other, they slotted in six goals to completely decimate the Bulgarians. The value of the victory further increases, when it’s known that the Three Lions were on the road. Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane, and Raheem Sterling, shining stars of the Premier League, all had contributed goals to this rout.
For this upcoming tie, by all means, the favorites are the English. They do have the home advantage and disregarding their lone, surprise loss, Gareth Southgate’s men have been on a roll. They are the toppers of the table and have won five of their total six games.
The team has scored a total of 26 goals in the process, and have let in just six. They have also scored four or more goals in every single game, bar one.
Importantly, the reverse fixture of this match-up had ended in a massive 1-5 victory for the English, and then they were on the road as well.
Finally, Montenegro has just one victory to their name from the previous ten fixtures, and a mere four from their preceding twenty-three trips away from home.
As such, a comfortable, convincing win is on the cards for England this Thursday.
