Norway vs Montenegro Prediction & Analysis
Norway had recorded a massive 5-1 win at home the last match-day, against Gibraltar. In the meantime, Montenegro were held to a 0-0 draw by Latvia.
Going on, the Norwegians have lost just thrice in the past 12-month period, and only once have they failed to score at home since September of 2016.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-game winless streak, and they had failed to score in four of these matches. Moreover, they had also conceded a total of nine goals from their last four games as well.
Furthermore, the Montenegrin team has won just four times away from home since September of 2017, and most importantly, they have a rather poor h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect a win for Norway this Monday.
