Montenegro vs Luxembourg Free Betting Tips – Nations League 2020

Will Montenegro remain flawless?


Can the Montenegrin national team soon prove itself in Division B of the UEFA Nations League? Well possible if you look at the current table for group C1. There, the Falcons are currently in the first place and after three-game days they have the maximum point yield. So it’s no wonder that before the match on Tuesday between Montenegro and Luxembourg, the odds are clearly in favour of the host.

Admittedly, it surprises us a little that the best bookmakers still offer an average of almost 1.90 for a home success of the favourite. The reason for this may be the leap in performance of the guests from the Grand Duchy. The red lions are now in the top 100 of the world rankings and were able to win two international matches in this calendar year alone.

Since the team of long-time national coach Luc Holtz usually brings their strength to the green turf better at home, we are sceptical whether a prediction on the underdog between Montenegro and Luxembourg can pay off. Instead, we believe in the next success of the better quality home side, who were able to bring Azerbaijan to their knees 2-0 at home on Saturday.

Montenegro – Statistics & current form

It seems like the Montenegrin national team has slowly come to terms with the missed participation in EURO 2021. Admittedly, the Falcons didn’t just fail, because in the “normal” European Championship qualification as well as in the Nations League, a few points were ultimately missing to be able to dream of a major pan-European tournament in the coming year.

Coach Hadzibegic’s men will be all the more relieved that at least the start of the new Nations League season was very successful. The 63rd in the world rankings was able to make all three previous competitive games in the 2020 calendar year victorious. In Cyprus, in Luxembourg and at home against Azerbaijan on the weekend, the Montenegrins not only won but also never conceded a goal.

Montenegro 2020 still without conceding a goal in the Nations League

With this in mind, it is definitely a good option to bet on a home win between Montenegro and Luxembourg. Another argument is the proven home strength of the Eastern Europeans, who only had to suffer two bankruptcies at home in 2019 & 2020, against England and the Czech Republic.

In addition, the qualitative advantages are clearly on the part of the host. In particular, AS Monaco captain Stevan Jovetic could make the difference offensively. But the young Haksabanovic and Boljevic, who come over the wing, are also in their clubs in Sweden and Belgium and are therefore in good shape.

The probable lineup of Montenegro:
Mijatovic – Radunovic, Simic, Vujacic, Raspopovic – Bakic, Vukcevic – Haksabanovic, Jovetic, Boljvic – Islamovic

Luxembourg – Statistics & current form

The Luxembourg national team is on the way up. In order to make this statement, one only needs to bear in mind that the troops from the Grand Duchy are now leaving nations such as Cyprus, Estonia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, which were rated higher a few years ago, in the FIFA world rankings.

In terms of Nations League, coach Luc Holtz’s team benefited from the increase in the divisions, so that they were promoted to second behind Belarus from division D in C. There, the Luxembourgers can also be very satisfied with their yield so far.

Luxembourg last with light and shadow

Two of the three games were won. Only at home against Montenegro did they lose 1-0 in the first leg a month ago. At the weekend, however, the red lions got back on the road to success. At home against Cyprus, there was a 2-0 win, which made up for the rather embarrassing 1-2 home defeat against Liechtenstein during the week.

Despite the good performance at the top, the Luxembourgers are still a little too inconsistent for us overall. Especially abroad, the players, some of whom do not even earn their money as professional footballers, do not reach their own performance limits. If they fail to do this, it will be difficult to take anything countable with them in Podgorica. In terms of personnel, Coach Holtz has no need to make any changes. Only behind the use of central defender Selimovic is still a question mark.

The probable lineup of Luxembourg:
Moris – Carlson, Martins, Gerson, Jans – Barreiro – Mica Pinto, Thill, Thill, Sinani – Rodrigues

Montenegro vs Luxemburg – Direct comparison / H2H balance

The first leg about a month ago was hard to beat in terms of drama in the final phase. After the teams neutralized each other for long stretches of the game and the slight advantages were even on the side of the Luxembourgers, a yellow-red card against Pereira turned everything upside down.

From then on, the Montenegrins were on the trigger and finally came with the last action of the game by a penalty to the happy 1-0 success. The Falken had won the only other direct duel to date in 2013 with a 4-1 victory.

In Group 1 of the UEFA Nations League Division C, Montenegro will face Luxembourg on Tuesday evening. The betting odds speak a very clear language in favour of the home side, who lead the rankings after three matchdays and are still free of loss points. In addition, the Falcons did not concede a single goal in three matches.

Because the front runner is also rated more strongly at home than abroad, but already had the upper hand in Luxembourg a month ago – albeit happily – 1-0, we are convinced that Coach Hadzibegic’s team will also be in Podgorica can live up to its own favourite role.

Key facts – Montenegro vs Luxembourg tips

Montenegro so far with three wins in three games and 5-0 goals
Luxembourg recently showed light and shadow (bankruptcy against Liechtenstein; victory against Cyprus)
The first leg a month ago ended 1-0 for Montenegro in Luxembourg

Although the number of guests from the Grand Duchy has increased steadily in recent years, the necessary consistency is still lacking. In terms of quality, we also see the hosts ahead, which is why the most attractive value between Montenegro and Luxembourg can probably be found in the simple tip on the home win.
