Both teams to score

While the bookies have Montenegro as their favourites, both teams have had a fairly good run of the games since 2019. The worst defeat for the visitors in the last ten games was against England when they lost 7-0 away. Ever since they have only lost one match at home to Luxembourg. Five wins, three draws and one loss in the last nine is a good run of results who won their last game by beating Cyprus 4-0 at home in UEFA Nations League. Latvia have drawn five of their last ten games, won three and lost two. Most of the draws ended 1-1. In the two losses, they conceded only 1-0 in each game. All the wins were accompanied by a clean sheet. We expect a strong show from both sides, with both finding the net.

Under 2.5 Goals

Montenegro is coming into this fixture with five wins in the last ten games, all of which were clean sheets. Out of the three draws in the last ten games, two ended a barren draw, which is another clean sheet for the visitors. Latvia has also been good defensively in the last 10 fixtures, conceding only six goals in all of them. The only conceded a goal in each of their two losses in the last ten matches. Defensively, both teams will be apt, which is why a low scoring match of fewer than 3 goals is the most likely outcome.

Half Time Result: Draw

The last two encounters between the two teams in international friendlies ended with less than three goals. Montenegro won away 2-0 and drew 1-1 at home. In both legs, only one goal scored in half-time. Given their impressive defensive record, both teams will be looking to see out the game in the first half. The visitors’ new manager, Miodrag Radulovic will be enough motivation to keep them in good form. Both teams seem to be in level terms and a draw of 1-1 at half time looks pretty good on the books.

Match Preview: Latvia vs. Montenegro

Latvia and Montenegro look set for a tough duel in a group that will make it hard for them to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. A 5-0 win against Andorra in the Nations League is hugely motivating to Latvia as they welcome a side that has had a good run of form in the last ten games. Montenegro’s new manager, Miodrag Radulovic, will be looking to maintain their form on the road. They are also coming into this fixture with a 4-0 win at home against Cyprus, which is a much stronger side. Backing both teams to score is, therefore, a value bet.
