Key World Cup Qualifier Pits Poland Against MontenegroPublished October 8, 2017 by Florin P
Poland and Montenegro meet in a World Cup qualifier that nobody can afford to lose. (5:00 p.m UK Time).
Poland has had a lot of fun in Group E during the qualifying campaign for the World Cup 2018. Without trying too hard, they managed to amass enough points to be almost certain of qualification to the main event. Now they need a single point on the road to be officially qualified and they are likely to obtain it against Montenegro at home.
Mission Possible for Montenegro
Defeating Poland on the road would be under normal circumstances almost impossible for a team such as Montenegro. However, they have played well enough recently and right now they’ve got nothing to lose against a complacent steam. The home side will be happy to present its fans with the gift of victory, but it’s not like they depend on the outcome of this match.
Poland will be more concerned about avoiding injuries to its key players and won’t hesitate to rotate them in the lineup. At the end of a long and successful qualifying campaign, they will be more interested in scoring goals and defending. This will present the visitors with the chance to score on the counterattack.
The Risk of a Draw is Minimal
The first match between the two teams was a close one, decided by a lucky goal scored by Poland. Since the visitors are desperate to win all three points and the home side is laidback ahead of this fixture, the risk of a draw is low. Furthermore, in the last eight games Montenegro didn’t split points even once, while Poland to a single match, in a friendly fixture.
This is the kind of game that is likely to result in many goals being scored, so punters don’t have to worry about with picking winners. bet365 Sports makes a tempting to bet on more than 2.5 goals to be scored, so take advantage of the odds while they last.
