Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Montenegro will be aiming to retain top position in the standings when they take on Azerbaijan at Baku Olympic Stadium. Despite struggling for first-team football at Monaco, Stevan Jovetic has already netted three goals for Montenegro in the Nations League this season, and, no doubt, the former Man City attacker is going to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line.
Adam Marusic returns to the squad after missing the October friendlies, while Nikola Vukcevic should recover in time to face Azerbaijan. The hosts failed to find the net in the previous two games in the Nations League, and even though important attacker Emreli returns to the squad away win should be considered. When the two teams met in Podgorica last month Montenegro recorded a routine 2-0 win over Azerbaijan, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Faruk Hadzibegic’s troops.
