The first meeting of these two neighbouring countries came with plenty of off the field drama. Lets home that it’s only football we’re discussing after the next installment of Kosovo against Montengro in Group A.

Kosovo Preview – Can Kosovo capitalise on game in hand and close the gap to Czech Republic to a single point?

Nobody would have given Kosovo a chance of finishing in the top two of Group A and thus qualifying for next summer’s European Championships, bearing in mind this is their first ever qualification campaign for this competition. That’s certainly not the case now with three games left as they can go to within a point of second place Czech Republic, whom they face next month in Prague. It’s still a tall ask for this emerging nation but they have definitely surpassed expectations and given themselves some sort of a chance. Friday’s 1-0 win over Gibraltar was a nervy encounter but the three points keep them in the hunt. What they didn’t want to see was Czech Republic getting a surprise win against England on the same evening which now makes their job even harder.

Their only defeat in this section came in that incredible game against England last month. Having taken then lead that night to then go in 5-1 down at half-time, Kosovo rallied to score the only two goals of the second half. It was a loss but one they showed just how capable they can be, especially in an attacking sense. With a home match to England to go alongside that trip to face the Czech Republic, it’s a really difficult end to the campaign. The first thing they have to do, however, is defeat Montenegro on Monday.

Montengro Preview – Will Montengro damage their rivals’ hopes of qualification by getting first win of the campaign?

It’s been a disappointing campaign all in for Montenegro and they have lost all chance of challenging for second spot with recent results. It’s not only on the field where they have had issues, though, political differences mean that certain players and even their head coach refused to participate in the first meeting between these two nations. The result of that was Ljubisa Tumbakovic being dismissed from his job and being replaced by Faruk Hadzibegic. The Bosnian has been in charge for two qualifiers and is still awaiting for his team to score a competitive goal. A heavy defeat at home to Czech Republic followed by Friday’s goalless draw when hosting Bulgaria has seen them any faint hopes of qualification removed.

The point over Bulgaria was the second time they have shared the points with that opponent in this group whilst also drawing with Kosovo the first time they clashed. Montenegro complete their campaign with a trip to face England next month so this, in all reality, is their last chance to rack up a win. Bearing in mind they have never went through any qualifying campaign without at least one win, that will be enough motivation going into this game.

Key-Facts – Kosovo v Montenegro

  • Considering this is Kosovo’s first ever European Championship qualifying campaign they have surpassed all expectations
  • It’s been a very disappointing campaign for Montenegro and they will be looking for their first win in the section
  • There was plenty of controversy in the build-up and aftermath the last time these nations met with the game itself ending 1-1

Kosovo v Montenegro Betting Advice

It’s really all or nothing now for Kosovo who are attempting to pull off what would be a remarkable achievement. This is their first ever European Championship qualifying campaign and they still have their fate in their own hands. Win this and they would be just a point behind the Czechs with two games left to play. Montenegro, with all the tensions between these countries and off the field issues, would love nothing more than to put a massive dent in their rivals’ hopes.
The biggest thing for both teams, but particularly the hosts, is keeping their emotions in check throughout the game. If Kosovo  can do that then they have every chance of getting the win they need. They have not lost a home game in over two years and have won eight of their last 10. Montenegro will be a stubborn opponent but they have been in poor form and look set for another defeat in this section.
