Can Montenegro finally bounce back after suffering three consecutive losses?
Montenegrins are still in the contest for the second position in group E, but they will need the home win over Armenia to keep the home ahead of the final four fixtures of the qualifying campaign.
Ljubisa Tumbakovic and his men were off to a dream start to the WC Qualifications as they took seven points from the opening three rounds.
However, the last-gasp defeat to Armenia seems to have changed their destiny entirely as they are yet to fully recover.
The Brave Falcons disappointed their fans with a 1-2 defeat to Iran in a friendly match played last week in Podgorica.
Armenia were of f to a disastrous start to their campaign as they suffered three consecutive losses to Denmark, Romania and Poland.
However, Arthur Petrosyan’s men never gave up the hope and were rewarded for it with back-to-back wins in following two fixtures to stay only a single point behind Montenegro and Denmark in the second position.
Man Utd’s star man Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to make an appearance after skipping the previous meeting between the two sides.
Montenegro vs Armenia: Head to head
Montenegro afforded a luxury to drop a two-goal cushion from the first half.
Damir Kojasevic and Stevan Jovetic were on target for the Brave Falcons, but Artak Grigoryan, Varazdat Haroyan and Gevorg Ghazaryan produced a magnificent comeback for the Armenians.
Montenegro vs Armenia: Prediction
Montenegro definitely have more quality in their team and they are much closer to getting three points from this encounter.
Stevan Jovetic has had a super strong finish of the season at Sevilla, he was on target in the loss to Iran last week, and he is well worth taking as an anytime goalscorer pick at the sky-high 13/10 odds.
