Poland vs Montenegro
WC Qualification Europe
Date: 8th October 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Narodowy.
Poland will host Montenegro in one of the most interesting fixtures set to be played on the closing day in the Group E of European WC Qualification.
The hosts will want to celebrate the direct qualification for the World Cup and book their spot in Russia, while the visitors will be desperate for an upset which could see them catching the playoffs.
Orly have dominated the group from the very first fixture of the campaign, but they somewhat ruined the impression with a catastrophic 4-0 defeat to Denmark at Telia Parken a month ago.
Robert Lewandowski & company bounced back instantly three days later when they easily dispatched the rock-bottomed Kazakhstan to stay three points clear at the top of the standings.
Lewa is going through a tough period in Bayern Munich and he will be super motivated to boost up his confidence with a strong display in the national team’s shirt.
The visitors were in touching distance with Denmark in the battle for the second position winning three games on the trot. But things have taken a toll with the home defeat to Denmark on Thursday.
Now, Montenegro dropped to third in the table and a 3 point gap opened up against the Danes. They have no choice but to defeat Poland on Sunday to make it as one of the best second placed teams, but this also depends on what happens in Romania v Denmark game.
Poland vs Montenegro: Head to head
This will be the fourth head to head meeting between the two sides. Clashes from the previous WC Qualification term (for the WC in Brazil 20154) saw Poland and Montenegro sharing spoils on both occasions.
Orly were successful in March this year when Robert Lewandowski and Lukasz Piszczek scored super important goals in a 1-2 victory in the Montenegrin capital.
Poland vs Montenegro: Prediction
Since each of three previous H2H encounters between the two sides saw both teams on target. Montenegro are coming here on a must win scenario, so we just have to see the value in backing the BTTS pick at 19/20 odds.
As for the outcome, we’ll stick to the hosts who have more quality in their squad.
