Montenegro vs Cyprus
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 17 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom, Podgorica.
Even though their most recent appearances have been very poor, Montenegro still have an amazing chance to win the first position in UEFA Nations League C Group 1. All they need to do is beat Cyprus at home and return to League B.
Visitors will also be playing highly motivated – victory in their case could help them avoid relegation. Most recent win against Luxembourg is surely encouraging. Still, bookies have given much better chances to hosts who are currently at 1.60 odds to win the match. Let’s take a look at h2h stats and recent forms.
Montenegro vs Cyprus Head-to-head
There were four previous head to head meetings between these teams. A big majority of those ended without winner (three duels), while Montenegro were victorious in one occasion.
Eight goals were scored in previous encounters, which averages 2.00 per duel.
Montenegrin squad was victorious in Nicosia in early September this year. They defeated Cyprus 2-0 thanks to goals scored by Stevan Jovetic.
Montenegro vs Cyprus Prediction
As mentioned above, Montenegro have been far away from good form. Only thanks to Luxembourg’s loss to Cyprus a couple of days ago they are in a good position to win the group.
Faruk Hadzibegic’s squad just returned from a trip to Austria where they faced Azerbaijan which ended in goalless draw.
Prior to that, they were defeated at home by Luxembourg 1-2. A big majority of their points was collected in the first three rounds thanks to three straight wins.
Cyprus have been very unpredictable in the last couple of months. Their form has improved lately, looking solid in a 1-2 loss in a friendly match to Greece. Abovementioned victory against Luxembourg was achieved last Saturday at home. Grigoris Kastanos was the MVP with two goals. It is worth adding they had one-man advantage in that duel for more than 60 minutes.
We are assured Cyprus will go down and lose the match in Podgorica.
