Montenegro’s National team hosts Romania at the Podgorica City Stadium,
in a match counting towards the 2018 World Cup qualification stage.
Montenegro is very close to making history. The team occupies the 2nd position of their group with 13 points gained so far, and at the moment they sit in a position that would grant them access to the play-offs.
The team is fighting to attend their first World Cup and they have a great generation of players. Poland’s loss at Denmark spiced up this group even more, which is now wide open since the Poles are leaders, but only with a 3-point advantage to Montenegro and Denmark.
Playing at home, the team has 2 wins and 1 loss, with a goal record of 10 goals scored and 3 conceded.
The key player of this team is Jovetic, who has already scored 6 goals so far in this competition.

Montenegro vs Romania – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Romania is also coming from a win over Armenia on their last match. Their triumph re-sparked the team’s hopes of qualifying or at least securing a spot in the play-offs.
Romania has 9 points gained so far, and they are in 4th place of their group. Reaching Poland in the group table seems unreal.
But reaching Denmark or Montenegro is more plausible, since the difference is only 4 points.
So, a win here is crucial. Away from home the Romanians have a win, a draw and a loss, with 6 goals scored and 3 goals conceded.
I expect a close encounter here. But I cannot ignore the value on Montenegro’s odds here. Romania seems a more inconsistent and less regular team.
Montenegro is playing well in this group stage and, playing at home, they’ve only lost to the leader Poland. Betting on Montenegro with a protection on the draw has value.
