Preview: Montenegro vs. Greece 

Greece will be looking to make it back-to-back victories on Monday evening when they take on Montenegro in an international friendly.

The visitors will enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 win over Romania on Friday, while Montenegro suffered a 1-0 defeat to Armenia in their last game on Thursday.

Montenegro’s disappointing form continued on Tuesday evening when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Armenia in an international friendly, with a first-half effort from Vahan Bichakhchyan deciding the contest.

The result made it three losses in their last four matches in all competitions, including a 2-1 defeat to Turkey in their final 2022 World Cup qualification game back in November, which saw them finish fourth in Group G.

The Brave Falcons have never qualified for the finals of a World Cup or a European Championship, so it is not a surprise that they have failed to book their spot at the 2022 World Cup.

Miodrag Radulovic’s side will take on Greece in this match before switching their attention to the UEFA Nations League, with their campaign beginning at home to Romania at the start of June.

Montenegro last faced Greece in an international friendly back in March 2016, suffering a 2-1 defeat, with Nikos Karelis’s 63rd-minute goal proving to be the winning effort.

Greece, meanwhile, will enter this match off the back of a 1-0 victory over Romania on Friday, with Andreas Bouchalakis netting the only goal in the 39th minute of the contest.

The game marked the start of Gus Poyet’s time at the helm, and the 54-year-old will soon turn his attention to the UEFA Nations League, which begins for Greece against Northern Ireland on June 2.

The Sky Blues and Whites finished third in their 2022 World Cup qualification section behind Spain and Sweden, picking up 10 points from their eight matches, suffering just two defeats in the process.

Greece have competed at the finals of three World Cups, qualifying in 1994, 2010 and 2014, but they missed out in 2018 and will also not be present in this year’s competition.

The 2004 European champions have only lost one of their last six friendly fixtures, recording four wins in the process, and another victory on Monday would certainly boost confidence in the camp.
