Montenegro v Denmark
Europe – World Cup Qualification Group E
Date: 5th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom.
Montenegro will host Denmark in the crucial qualifying match for both sides on Thursday evening at Stadion Pod Goricom.
The sides are all levelled at 16 points each with two games left to play, but the draw would mean goodbye to the World Cup ambitions for both sides because of the second-ranked teams’ standings.
The Serbian manager Ljubisa Tumbakovic can be satisfied with his team’s form ahead of the final two games of the campaign as Montenegro notched three consecutive victories to stay in the contest for the second position in the Group E.
Stevan Jovetic has been enjoying a phenomenal form ever since the start of the campaign (seven goals so far) and he was the one who secured three golden points against Romania in the previous round (1-0 victory).
The visitors were off to a poor kick off to their qualifying run, but they will come into the game in Podgorica in high spirits after netting eight goals past Denmark and Armenia in September.
Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen is the key man in this generation, but Age Hareide has plenty of other attacking options in the likes of Kasper Dolberg, Nicklas Bendtner, Pione Sisto etc.
Montenegro vs Denmark: Head to head
Montenegro stunned Denmark in the first match between the two sides played a year ago when Fatos Beqiraj’s 31st minute goal (after a beautiful pass from Jovetic) made all the difference.
The Brave Falcons showed a phenomenal defense at Telia Parken and they will want to build on that display on Thursday as well.
Montenegro vs Denmark: Prediction
Denmark are in a much better attacking form now and they are the favourites here, but we generally expect to witness a low-scoring contest with very few goal-scoring chances on both ends.
