Montenegro – Romania, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MONTENEGRO - ROMANIA
Montenegro were expected to lose in their last game against Serbia and now have no chances for the first place. However, getting eliminated is not ruled out, because in groups with 4 teams some of the third will pass in the lower league. Obviously Montenegro suffers, because of the lack of their big stars, Jovetic and Savic. They managed to get a zero-zero draw in the previous match against Romania and now they have to do everything to finish at least in the best possible way this year, because in their last 5 home games they managed to win only one match, not enough for sure.
Romania must get the three points in this match and then to rely on Lithuania to get something out of the visit to Serbia. This seems practically impossible and the Romanians are likely to finish 2nd. However, they have to do the job and do what is up to them. In their last match against Lithuania, they won by 3-0 and showed good football. Overall, the shape of Romania is now more than good – 6 wins and 3 draws in the last 9 games. In addition, their defense is very stable and often record clean sheets.
Montenegro and Romania have played 4 games in their history, with the last three since 2016. until now. Montenegro got 2 draws as a guest and at home last year for the World Cup qualifiers they won 1-0. There is a tendency to have few goals in these fights. Now something different is not expected. Romania will play more closed and will most likely try to win the game if any chance appears. Montenegro is not very good in attack and with Jovetic’s absence will be difficult for them to score. Our prediction here is Under 2.5 goals at 1.57
