Montenegro vs Bulgaria Match Preview
Montenegro host Bulgaria for their Matchday 7 EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash on Friday evening still looking for their first win in Group A, where they saw a very disappointing start and sit huge ten points behind pace-setters England – with just two to their name at this point.
Brave Falcons came close to all three points in Bulgaria but were still held to a 1-1 draw, going on to earn just one more point against Kosovo (1-1) and suffering quite comfortable losses to England (1-5) and Czech Republic (3-0 and 0-3). They picked it up with a 2-1 friendly win over Hungary as Faruk Hadzibegic took over but haven’t really been able to build on the early success.
Bulgaria will now hope for a similar upset but they’ve hardly been at their best either, sitting rock-bottomed with as many points in five games. Even more worryingly, they come into the match with a streak of four losses – with a terrible defensive tally away from home and struggles to capitalize on goals scored.
Indeed, Lions saw Czech Republic (2-1), Kosovo (2-3), England (4-0) all snatch the points and failed to pick up their team spirits in a friendly against Republic of Ireland (3-1). They will now want more but getting it will be no easy task for them we feel, as Montenegro have more to prove and more to hope for on the day.
We will thus back Montenegro to capitalize on the rivals’ regular slip-ups at the back and we’ll go for them to secure all three points in a Home win priced at 23/20 with Coral – which has caught the eye of many as the best approach to the fixture.
We expect an exciting game of football, though, and they could have to outgun the rivals to secure the points. With that in mind, we’re also going for a high-scoring occasion at Stadion Pod Goricom with Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 5/4 with Unibet.
