Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Lithuania, Montenegro will be aiming to sneak at the 2024 European Championship finals when they take on Hungary in their last group game. The Montenegrins face a must-win situation in the decider, but they do not have destiny in their own hands as second-place Serbia play host to rock-bottom Bulgaria on Sunday. Anyhow, the visitors will rely on experienced striker Stevan Jovetic, who sealed the victory against Lithuania.
The Hungarians, on the other hand, aim to clinch top position in Group G and seeing that they will have a number of opportunities to score on the break, we are tempted to place our bets on Dominik Szoboszlai and Co. Bournemouth defender Milos Kerkez misses out through suspension as he was sent off in a 2-2 draw with Bulgaria, with Puskas Academy man Zsolt Nagy likely to step up.
Highlighted Team (Montenegro):
Montenegro is yet another former Yugoslavian republic. The Montenegrins declared their independence in 2006 and they played their first official match under the name of Montenegro in March, 2007. The Hrabri sokoli defeated Hungary in their first official game, with the team coming from behind to beat the Hungarians.
Serie A superstar Mirko Vucinic and Igor Burzanovic scored for Montenegro in the 2-1 triumph over Hungary. Montenegro national football team participated in the UEFA Euro 2012 playoffs and that is regarded as the team’s biggest success. The Hrabri sokoli faced Czech Republic in the double-header, but they eventually failed to book their place at the showpiece tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
Aforementioned attacker Mirko Vucinic is seen as one of the most famous footballers who played for the Montenegro national team, but we should mention former Manchester City ace Stevan Jovetic as well. Montenegro play their home games at Stadion Pod Goricom and they recorded their biggest win against San Marino (6-0) in September, 2012.
