Montenegro Prediction – Can Montenegro break drought?

The hosts suffered a heavy 3-0 loss at home to Czech Republic last time out in the Euro 2020 qualifiers which extended their winless run of matches in Group A to 5 matches, but they’ll probably fancy their chances of claiming their first win of their campaign on Friday night when they play host to Bulgaria.

Bulgaria are level on 2 points apiece with Montenegro but sit bottom of the group due to an inferior goal difference to that of their hosts on Friday night, and Montenegro will be keen to register their first home win of these group stages.

Prior to their loss to Czech Republic, Montenegro recorded a 2-1 win over Hungary in a friendly and they’d held Bulgaria to a 1-1 draw away from home as well as a 1-1 draw with 3rd placed Kosovo at their Stadion Pod Goricom.

6 of Montenegro’s last 8 matches at home in all competitions have seen both teams score, and as the straight win market appears fraught with danger here, goals could be the way to go in this one.

Bulgaria Prediction – Can Bulgaria lift themselves off bottom?

Despite being away from home, Bulgaria will also view this fixture as an opportunity to lift themselves off the bottom of Group A at the expense of their Friday night’s hosts, Montenegro, as the visitors look to end a 3-match losing streak.

Indeed, it’s actually 4 straight defeats on the trot for Bulgaria as they’ve suffered defeats to Czech Republic, Kosovo and England in these Euro 2020 qualifiers as well as a 3-1 loss away at the Republic of Ireland in a recent international friendly.

Overall, it’s now 9 matches without a win in all competitions for Bulgaria so the straight win markets should also be avoided where the visitors are concerned too, but 7 of Bulgaria’s last 9 matches overall have seen both teams score too.

In addition, despite winning just 1 of their last 14 away matches, 10 of these matches have also resulted in both teams hitting the back of the net so they too should be backed in the goals markets.

Betting Tips Verdict
