With three wins from their first four matches, Montenegro have made a strong start to their Nations League C Group 1 campaign, and another victory this weekend against Azerbaijan could fire the Brave Falcons from second place to the top of the standings.
Montenegro – who have averaged just 1.0 goals per Nations League fixture so far – could find it difficult to cut through an Azerbaijan rearguard that kept three clean sheets in their last four assignments however.
Excitement levels in fact, have generally been low in Azerbaijan and Montenegro’s UNL respective tussles so far, and both teams saw under 2.5 goals hit the net in three of the four Group 1 matches they’ve contested since early September.
Saturday’s skirmish has all the makings of another low-scoring encounter, and the under 2.5 goals market again jumps out as the best avenue worth exploring for the game, while our correct score prediction backs Montenegro to force a valuable 1-0 win.
Faruk Hadžibegić’s side bested Azerbaijan 2-0 when the teams last met in Montenegro, though the Montenegrins might have to settle for single effort in Saturday’s rematch against a host defence on a run of three shutouts in four.
