Latvia vs Montenegro Prediction & Match Preview


Latvia vs Montenegro Prediction & Match Preview



24 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET World Cup Qual

Skonto stadions will host Wednesday’s WC qualifier between Latvia and Montenegro. 

The Latvians aim to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Andorra, but Montenegro are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. 

The former Soviet republic have always been struggling in matches against top-table sides, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.

The Montenegrins, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-0 win over Cyprus. 

Key attacker Stevan Jovetic has been producing fine displays with Monaco of late, and seeing that new boss Miodrag Radulovic can count on Sporting Gijon striker Uros Djurdjevic for the upcoming qualifying matches, we believe that there is a big value in betting on “Brave Falcons”. 

When the two teams met in a friendly last year they played out a 1-1 draw, but we are tempted to put our money on the visitors this time out.

Team News:

With Stefan Savic back available for this game, Radulovic is expected to hand an immediate recall to the Atletico Madrid defender.

Fatos Beciraj is in line to feature in the final third as a replacement for Stefan Mugosa, while Adam Marusic may switch to right-back to allow Risto Radunovic to play on the opposite flank.

After thrashing Andorra by a 5-0 scoreline back in November, Kazakevics may see little reason to make any alterations to his team.

Davis Ikaunieks scored twice during that fixture, doubling the amount of goals that he scored in his first 27 appearances for his country.
