Montenegro vs England Betting Preview – 25/03/2019

Montenegro vs England

Gareth Southgate’s England side make the trip to Montenegro on Monday where the pair will face off at the Stadion Pod Goricom for a 7:45pm kick off in Group A of the Euro 2020 qualifiers. The away side were the only team in the group to win their opening game as they defeated the Czech Republic by five goals to nil, whereas the hosts played out a draw upon their visit to Bulgaria. On the previous occasion these two met, it was the Three Lions who came out on top with a 4-1 victory in 2013.

Montenegro will be aiming to bounce back from their disappointing run of three games without a win in this fixture, having been beaten twice and drawn once during that time. Montenegro finished third in their UEFA Nations League group table behind Romania and Serbia, and this week’s home side are third favourites to win the group with SkyBet having them at 33/1. Their last win came away to Lithuania in October in a game which ended 4-1, however since then they have not kept a clean sheet and conceded four goals, scoring twice themselves, with SkyBet offering BTTS at 5/4. Montenegro come into this one as heavy underdogs and SkyBet have them to win at 6/1.

In their last match, Montenegro gave up the lead versus Bulgaria with just eight minutes remaining on the clock after Stefan Mugosa had put his nation in front fifty minutes into the affair. They have scored in three of their last four games and SkyBet have BTTS and under 2.5 goals at 13/2. Bet365 are offering under 2.5 goals at 4/6 and with Montenegro not scoring more than 2.5 goals in their last three outings they look like solid odds. Despite not being favourites to come out with anything from this tie, Montenegro will be determined to put all their talent on show when they welcome one of the world’s heavyweights in football.

England will be full of belief and confidence ahead of this meeting with Montenegro after seeing off the Czech Republic in their first game of the Euro 2020 qualifiers and with over three goals in each of their last four matches, SkyBet have over 2.5 goals in the match at 11/10. England have been the victors in all of their last four games, beating Spain, USA, Croatia and the recent fixture versus the Czech’s, scoring a total of thirteen goals and shipping just three, with SkyBet having them at 6/5 to win to nil. Being the only country to have won their opening Group A encounter, England are the favourites to top the group at 1/16.

Raheem Sterling was in red hot form in the thrashing of the Czech Republic, netting three goals for himself with all coming before the seventy minute mark. Both Jadon Sancho and Ross Barkley provided one assist each, with the Dortmund starlet impressing on his international debut for the Three Lions. With three or more goals scored in three of their last four games, SkyBet have odds of 5/2 for England to score 3+, while Bet365 have England to score 3+ at 11/4.
