Montenegro to Win at Half Time and Full Time

The first match between these two teams in Latvia showed that Montenegro is the better team and while the win in that game didn’t come easy for them, they should be able to get another win against the Baltic country. In fact, we expect Montenegro to lead at half time before winning at the end, despite the fact that they come into this game after a convincing 4-0 loss to Netherlands.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last three games played by Montenegro in all competitions have gone over 2.5 total goals, while four of the last five Latvia matches across the board have also gone over 2.5 total goals. Also, the first game that these two teams played in the Qualifiers ended with three goals, so our next prediction is for this match to go over 2.5 total goals as well.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the previous two head-to-head meetings between Montenegro and Latvia, so we expect to see more of the same in their upcoming duel. After all, four of the last five matches played by Latvia in all competitions have ended with both teams scoring, while the same is true for two of the last five Montenegro games.

Montenegro vs Latvia preview: Can Montenegro recover after the last round?

The home team is the clear favourite in this game, but the guests have enough firepower to surprise them. So, let’s check the teams out in more detail right now:

Montenegro

Things were going well for Montenegro in these Qualifiers until the last round in which they took a beating from Netherlands and conceded four goals. All in all, Montenegro now has two wins, one draw, and two losses, which accounts for seven points and puts them in fourth place in the group. It’s a very close race for the first two spots in this group and Montenegro still has a chance, but it’s hard to see it happening after the last round.

Latvia

The Baltic nation is struggling in these WC Qualifiers, which is not a huge surprise since Latvia has only managed to reach one European Championship since the break of the USSR. They still have to see the biggest stage at a World Cup and it won’t be in Qatar, that’s for sure. Latvia has one win over Gibraltar in the group, along with a surprising draw 3-3 against Turkey. The other three games have all been losses.
