England travel to Montenegro for the first time since 2013 to follow up the home qualifying match against the Czech Republic.


For a nation that only played its first official match 12 years ago Montenegro have come a long way in a short amount of time. Since gaining independence from the former Yugoslavia, Montenegro have looked impressive in qualification campaigns without ever making the finals of a major tournament. A passionate home crowd will be fully behind the home team here but the bookies have an away win as the most likely result.

England follow up their home opener against the Czech Republic with this fixture that may well be tougher than many fans will think. But even taking into account the relatively short amount of time between matches, England will expect to come away from Podgorica with three points.

Montenegro only just missed out on a play off spot in the last European Championship qualification campaign – and finished third in their World Cup qualifying group behind Poland and Denmark. Signs are there that this side could do well and although the sports betting sites may not fancy them, they will certainly challenge the Czech Republic and Bulgaria for second place here.

England’s run to the semi final stage at last year’s World Cup has given new hope to their players and fans that they will soon be able to emulate their 1966 counterparts and lift a major trophy. Gareth Southgate has brought back the belief to the side – and with this new set of players England might finally be able to live up to their promise. They should get a victory here too – 2-0 to the visitors.

Betting Tips

England to win                  

It may not bring substantial returns but an England victory seems to be the most likely result in Podgorica – given the way that Gareth Southgate’s side have been playing over the last year.

Montenegro to win either half 

There will be no doubt that the home side will be up for the visit of England – and if the visitors start tentatively then there is a chance that Montenegro could take a shock lead. They may not go on to win the match but could lead at the half way point.

  • England have not lost a qualifying match away from home since they were beaten by Ukraine in 2010.
