Europe: World Cup - Qualification
Match start: 19:45 (GMT+1)
In the middle of the last century at the territory of the Balkan Peninsula there was the common state - Yugoslavia. The national football team of that country was one of the strongest and most popular European teams and the goalscorer Dragan Džajić was very often called the Balkan or even the European Pele.
But political transformations at the beginning of 1990th had separated this country into 6 independent states. Did the football of Yugoslavia gain any profit?
The national team of Montenegro
Alas! Out of 6 former Yugoslavian republic only Croatia and with the long-term perspective Serbia can be proud of their modern football national teams.
And what about the others? Only sometimes the national teams of Bosnia and Slovenia can show some impressive results but the national teams of Macedonia and Montenegro are traditionally the underdogs of every qualification stage of the World Cup and the Championships of Europe.
You mustn’t be confused by the second line of the Montenegrins in the 5th European group. As soon as the national teams of Romania and Denmark will show all they can the team of Ljubiša Tumbaković will return to the camp of underdogs together with the national teams of Armenia and Kazakhstan.
The national team of Poland
During the 4 last rounds the Montenegrians at first have crushed the national team of Kazakhstan (5:0) and then they took the points from the national teams of Denmark (0:1) and Romania (1:1).
Poland – 10, Montenegro – 7, Denmark – 6, Romania – 5, Armenia – 3, Kazakhstan – 2;
But now to Podgorica had come the main favorite of the 5th group. Let us remember that at 4 last rounds Robert Lewandowski, Jakub Błaszczykowski, Kamil Grosicki, Grzegorz Krychowiak and the whole team of Adam Nawałka had destroyed the national teams of Denmark, Romania, Armenia with the total score - 8:3.
It is obvious that the favorite of the forthcoming meeting in Podgorica is known already. And bookmakers’ proposals prove this fact:
The national team of Montenegro – 4,50, draw – 3,30, The national team of Poland – 1,85.
During the match with the national team of Montenegro the partner of Robert Lewandowski in attack line will be the forward of Napoli Arkadiusz Milik and the middle line and defense as usual are taken by Kamil Grosicki, Jakub Błaszczykowski and the right lateral is taken by Łukasz Piszczek from Borussia Dortmund.
