Montenegro vs Lithuania
UEFA Nations League
Date: Monday, 10 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom, Podgorica.
Montenegro will be looking to back up the goalless draw with Romania as they host group underdogs Lithuania in the second round tie on Monday evening in the capital of Podgorica.
Ljubisa Tumbakovic can be satisfied with first match result given he was without three first team-regulars, including side’s biggest name Stevan Jovetic.
The visitors could not hold on to a goalless draw against Serbia who managed a 0-1 victory In Vilnius thanks to a penalty-kick goal from Ajax’s Dusan Tadic.
The Lithuanians were lucky to have lost by a single goal difference as Serbia hit the woodwork on as many as four occasions in the affair, while Tadic also missed the second penalty seven minutes from time.
Edgaras Jankauskas’ men just failed to stay competitive and do much in the final third with non-inspired Fedor Cernych leading their line on Friday.
Montenegro vs Lithuania: Head-to-head
The two sides did not have the opportunity to tackle each other in the past.
Montenegro vs Lithuania: Prediction
Tumbakovic now has serious issues with his men’s attacking performances as the Brave Falcons come into this after failing to find the back of the net in three consecutive matches.
They are winless in last seven which significantly reduces the value of the 1.36 odds offered by the home win here.
Lithuania are certainly the opposition Montenegro should not be afraid of, but backing the Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be a much better call than going for the home win at 1.36 odds.
The best of the betting options is, however, Montenegro to keep a clean sheet at 1.72 knowing that Lithuanians were just powerless in the final third of late.
The visitors scored just two times in last seven games even though they’ve played the likes of Georgia, Armenia, Estonia, Lithuania and Iran in the process.
Montenegro vs Lithuania: Bet Tips
Montenegro to keep a clean sheet @ 1.75 (3/4)
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.85 (6/7).
