Finland vs Montenegro
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 7 June 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium.
Finland is set to host Montenegro in a match of League B in Group 3 at UEFA Nations League. They will be battling it out this Tuesday at Helsinki Olympic Stadium.
Finland played out a 1-1 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina in their campaign starter at Tuesday’s venue on Saturday. They got a point from that game and now sit at the third spot in the group. After missing out on World Cup qualification, the hosts are offered here a potential path to Euro 2024. In order To reach the Euro qualifying playoffs, Finland should top this group.
Fewer than three goals per match were scored during 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Finland have been participants. Regarding the goal split during this period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 7 while the Finns totted up 7 overall.
On the other side, Montenegro is at the top of Group 3 of the League B standings with 3 points in hand. They won their last match by 2-0 against Romania who are now at the bottom. The result against Romania helped them to secure consecutive victories, and they will now head on their travels for an away contest in Finland.
It has become apparent that Montenegro have been starved of goals in their past 6 encounters, contributing the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, Hrabri sokoli have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equals to seven.
These two sides have never crossed paths each other and this will be their first ever meeting.
Finland vs Montenegro Prediction
The Finns are a bunch with a bit of quality here and there, but lack the sort of creativity required to break down really stubborn opponents at home. Montenegro now fall into that category after topping the group.
The home side is now on a 4-game winless run across various competitions. Five of Finland’s last 6 games have featured fewer than three goals and this side is seen having a hard time finding victories.
Meanwhile, Montenegro scored a late goal to double their lead in their previous game. They have now won back to back games maintaining a cleansheet. Two of Montenegro’s last five home games have finished all square and 5 of their last 8 games have featured fewer than three goals.
We feel that a draw or away win looks to be more realistic option here.
