Poland vs Montenegro – 2018 World Cup Qualification: On the final round of this group E of the qualification stage for the 2018 World Cup in Russia
Poland hosts the National team of Montenegro.
Poland’s National team comes into this final match as clear leaders of this group E, with 22 points gained, 3 more than the Danish who sit in 2nd place.
On the 9 round they played so far, the Poles have only lost 5 points out of the possible 27 (all away from home) and they boast a fantastic goal record of 24 goals scored and 12 goals conceded on their matches,
which results in a average of 4 goals per match. Since Denmark beat Montenegro away from home and Poland smashed Armenia 6-1,
the hosts only need to avoid defeat here to ensure their qualification for the World Cup (regardless of other results).
The spotlight is naturally on Bayern’s star, Robert Lewandowski, who is the top goal scorer of this qualification stage so far with 15 goals.
Montenegro is currently in 3rd place on this group E, with 16 points gained and despite not being mathematically out of Russia, they have a very hard task for this last match.
Besides having to win in Poland, they are also dependant of Denmark’s result, since they need the Danish to lose at home against Romania.
Besides that, they won’t have their best player Jovetic available, since he suffered an injury on the last match.
And without having Monaco’s attacker, this Montenegro team drops considerably in terms of quality, just like we saw against the Danish.
Poland vs Montenegro – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Poland is by far the best team on this group E, having a perfect record on their home matches, so I don’t think they will have any trouble beating this weaker version of Montenegro.
I will also add to the Polish victory the Over 2.5 Goals in the match, situation that occurred in all of the 9 matches this team has played on this qualification stage.
