Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Montenegro will look to keep their Euro 2024 qualification hopes alive when they take on Lithuania at Podgorica City Stadium on Thursday evening. The Montenegrins suffered a 3-1 loss to Serbia in their last group game, but their performance in the Stadion Rajko Mitic defeat was anything but poor. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced striker Stevan Jovetic, who scored a beautiful goal in the Belgrade defeat.
The Lithuanians, on the other hand, dropped a two-goal deficit in a 2-2 draw with Hungary and seeing that they have nothing to play for in the remainder of the process. As 11 goals in total have been netted in the previous three meetings between the two sides, yet another high-scoring affair is on the horizon. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Podgorica.
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.
