Montenegro will face with Denmark in 9th round of World Cup qualifications and in order to keep their second spot in group E must win this duel, however it will be very hard to outplay Denmark which are in good form and are coming here to collect all three points. Montenegro won last three games, they defeated Romania most recently with narrow result at home, earlier managed to achieve two convincing victories over Kazakhstan and Armenia and now are three points behind leaders Poland while Denmark have same number of points at third position.
Montenegro were quiet good so far in these qualifications especially in offense, in 8 games scored 18 goals while conceded only seven, about a year ago they defeated Denmark away from home with narrow result and had a bit of luck there to collect all three points as opponents were much better side in that duel but they exploited their chance and scored that one goal.
Montenegro are still having chances to qualify for World Cup however they must avoid defeat here at all costs, in last round will face with Poland so in case of draw or defeat they will have very small chances to win ticket for Russia. Goalkeeper Vukasin Poleksic (39/0), defender Marko Basa (39/2), midfielders Nebojsa Kosovic (4/0), Marko Bakic (11/0) and forward Vucinic (46/17) will all stay out of action, forward Beciraj (49/9) will also miss this game due to a suspension.
Denmark meanwhile are coming here after seven matches without defeat while in last three achieved three victories with 11 goals scored and only two conceded, they smashed Poland with four goals margin and now want another victory, in front of the are unpleasant hosts and here will be seeking for revenge, anyway Denmark are favorites and they should be able to win this duel.
So far they suffered two defeats, once in first duel with Poland and second was against Montenegro, Denmark have decent team with midfielder Eriksen as one of key players, now should be able to collect points and climb up to a second spot, in last round will host Romania and in case of victory here they would be very close to a second position and play offs.
Denmark are favorites, they are in good form and should be able to score some goals tonight. Defenders Peter Ankersen (19/1), Erik Sviatchenko (5/1), midfielders Daniel Wass (16/0), Pierre-Emile Hobjerg (21/1) and forward Nicolai Jorgensen (26/8) are all on list of absent players.
This should be an interesting game, both teams showed quiet good performances so far especially in offense, at this moment Denmark are favorites and i believe that will manage to celebrate in the end.
