Montenegro vs England Live Euro 2020 Qualification on Date: Monday, 25 March 2019, Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET and Venue: Stadion Pod Goricom (Podgorica).
Montenegro will face the group’s favorite England in their first home match of the qualifying campaign on Monday night in Podgorica. Can the hosts produce resistance to the ropes without their two main stars Stefan Savic and Stevan Jovetic? Both players will avoid the impact of injuries, which is a much disadvantage for head coach Slavisa Tumbakovic.
The Brave Falcons do not usually have their most powerful team at their disposal. This caused a rather poor campaign in the League of Nations, which saw the team finish its group of the C League in third place of four teams (behind Serbia and Romania, respectively). The hosts struggled to create in the last third in the absence of their leading scorer, Stevan Jovetic. They have not been able to find the back of the net in three of their last four home games against Slovenia, Romania, and Serbia.
Montenegro vs England: face to face
- Historically, Montenegro was an unpleasant opposition to the Three Lions.
- The Brave Falcons have kept England in three draws in the last four H2H meetings.
- Both teams were in the line of fire in three of the last four cases of H2H.
- England defeated the Valiant Falcons in 2013 at Wembley with a 4-1 victory.
Montenegro vs England: Prediction
Gareth Southgate also had some injury problems before this draw, but these should have a smaller impact than those of Montenegro. The heroes of the World Cup fall into this category as favorites, since Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, and Marcus Rashford had a great form at the end of the Premier League.
England supported their brilliant World Cup by defeating their respective group of the League of Nations ahead of Spain and Croatia, two heavyweights in the second half of last year. They kept four white sheets in five games outside of the previous qualifying campaign.
With the absences of the Montenegro lineup, we should expect a blank win for the visitors here.
