Liechtenstein v Montenegro | Betting Preview

Date: October 9, 2014
Venue: Vaduz, Liechtenstein.
Kick off time: 19:45 hrs BST.

In Uefa Euro 2016 Qualification Group G match Liechtenstein will face Montenegro. With Russia and Sweden being the two favourites to qualify directly Montenegro will fancy their chances against a humble Liechtenstein to hold on to third for their qualification to remain open.

Liechtenstein form: L-L-L-L-L

Liechtenstein are coming into this game with five straight defeats. They were hammered 4-0 against Russia in their last qualifying match. They would hope that they could transfer their home advantage to hold Montenegro off guard and nick a point of them.

Montenegro form: L-W-W-L-D

Montenegro scored two goals past Moldova in their opening match. This has put them above the much fancied Sweden into second position in Group G. A win against Liechtenstein would put them in command for a direct qualification place for Euro 2016.

Key Players

Liechtenstein: Franz Burgmeier.

The thirty two year old Franz Burgmeier is the man to look out for Liechtenstein. He is fifth in the all times caps for them and also their second highest scorer. It will be imperative that this left sided midfielder plays out of his skin for Liechtenstein to make a mark on the game.

Montenegro: Mirko Vucinic.

Mirko Vuninic is Montenegro’s captain as well as their all-time top scorer. This thirty one year old Al Jazira striker is in good form scoring in the last match against Moldova. He will once again hope to be the inspiration in Montenegro’s away victory over Liechtenstein
