Montenegro vs. Belarus – Prediction (Friendly – 19.11.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

Both Montenegro (FIFA rank: #61) and Belarus (#86) suffered heavy defeats without reply to round off their respective European qualifying campaigns and now must turn their attentions elsewhere. Montenegro’s latest defeat extended their current scoreless run to 375 minutes of play, with two of those games against sides ranked level or beneath them. Two of Montenegro’s paltry three goals across their last seven matches were scored by Stefan Mugoša, one of which came from the penalty spot. Whilst Montenegro have been kept to scoring once or less in eight of their last nine competitive home games, they did net twice in two of their last three friendlies on home soil. Notably, the hosts are unconvincing vs lower-ranked nations and have won just two of six such clashes since the start of 2018 (W2, D2, L2).

Montenegro took fewer than four corners in four of their last five home matches. All three H2H matches have seen under 2.5 match goals (1.0 per-match average – 66.66% second-half goals). Belarus registered fewer than four corners in three of their last four away games.

Conversely, each of Belarus’ last seven victories have all come against sides with a lower ranking than themselves, with their last victory vs a higher-ranked nation arriving vs Bulgaria in 2017 (2-1). Curiously, Bulgaria are ranked level with Montenegro on #61 – is a repeat on the cards? Stanislav Dragun scored three of Belarus’ six goals across their last three away victories, two of which came before half-time. In 2019 alone, Belarus have conceded eight first-half goals across nine overall games and consequently, five of their seven defeats in this calendar year came at both half-time/full-time (71.43%). However, they did receive just one or fewer team bookings in three of their last four matches.
