EUROPA: FIFA World Cup - qualifiers
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
One of the most intriguing situations prior to the 9th round of qualification campaign of the FIFA World Cup is observed now at 5th European group E. Now the only leader of the group (Poland) has 19 points and forthcoming match in Yerevan against Armenia that has already lost all motivation.
But another match of the 5th sextet presents us the meeting of two challengers for the second final place – Montenegro and Denmark. According to the results of 8 rounds both teams have earned 16 points and that is why the winner of the match in Podgorica will gain the right to participate at play-off matches in November.
Montenegro (the head coach Ljubiša Tumbaković)
Practically all best football players headed by Stevan Jovetić (Monaco) and Stefan Savić (Atlético Madrid) were invited to take their places at national team of Montenegro. And this fact speaks in favor of importance of this forthcoming match for Montenegro. Only Mirko Vučinić, the most popular former center forward of Juventus Italy who has no gaming practice was not called. The last team for the 33 years old Mirko became Al Jazeera (UAE).
Denmark (the head coach Åge Hareide)
It is obvious, if we compare the squads of the current opponents, Hareide now has more famous and experienced football players. These are, of course, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester), center back Simon Kjæ (Sevilla), holding midfielder William Kvist (Copenhagen), center forward Nicklas Bendtner (Rosenborg) and, of course, the playmaker of the vice-champion of EPL Christian Eriksen (Tottenham).
Thanks to such squad bookmakers consider Denmark to be the bright favorite of the forthcoming battle. But in favor of Montenegro speaks the fact of home arena in Podgorica. The psychological aspect has the great importance during such super significant matches. And we think that here the bet made on scored goals by both teams is more actual.
Montenegro – 3.75, draw – 3.25, Denmark – 2.05;
both teams to score (yes) - odds 1.91 Bet365
