Montenegro vs Norway Prediction & Match Preview



30 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

Montenegro and Norway take on each other at Stadion Pod Goricom in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. 

Montenegro kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign in style, with the team beating both Latvia (2-1) and Gibraltar (4-1) in the first two group games, and, no doubt, they want to keep their 100% record intact. 

New Montenegro attacker Uros Djurdjevic obviously helped the team improve their game, and given Stevan Jovetic’s fine form, we predict that the hosts will find the net in Tuesday’s match.

Midfielder Marko Bakic is sidelined with injury, while both Stefan Savic and Stevan Jovetic return to the starting XI. 

Norway, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Turkey, and given their attacking potential, we believe that Erling Haland and Co. 

will find the net in the Stadion Pod Goricom clash as well. Norway midfielder Kristian Thorsvedt is banned for the match.

Team News:

Radulovic is expected to hand recalls to Stefan Savic and Jovetic after the key duo dropped out of the starting lineup against Gibraltar.

Either Fatos Beqiraj or Uros Djurdjevic will take their place in attack, but Vladimir Jovovic could keep his place ahead of Igor Ivanovic.

Norway will definitely be without Kristian Thorstvedt, who was sent off against Turkey after his introduction as a substitute.

Andre Hansen is also in line to take the place of Rune Jarstein after the first-choice goalkeeper was withdrawn at half time in that game.

Jonas Svensson and Joshua King are options for Solbakken if he wants to make further changes to his team.

Mijatovic; Marusic, Savic, Vujacic, Radunovic; Kosovic, Scekic; Jovovic, Jovetic, Haksabanovic; Beqiraj
