Montenegro vs Romania
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom (Podgorica).
Montenegro and Romania will take on each other in a very interesting last round fixture of Group 4 on Tuesday evening in Podgorica. The Brave Falcons returned into the contest for the very top of the ladder after a demolishing 1-4 victory over the rock-bottomed Lithuania a month ago in Vilnius. Striker Stefan Mugosa was the main catalyst for such a big win to which he contributed with a brace.
Can the Incheon United forward make the difference against a much tougher opposition when Montenegrin squad takes on Romania here? He has been enjoying a thrilling form in K-League where he notched as many as 18 goals this season. Mugosa was on target in three of last four matches for his club and will no doubts be the biggest threat to the Romanian goal on Tuesday in the absence of team’s main star Stevan Jovetic.
