Our prediction for this Nations League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Pod Goricom when Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina, the two former Yugoslav republics, face each other in the UEFA Nations League round 3. Montenegro did well to beat Romania 2-0 in their opener, but they failed to spoil Finland’s party in Helsinki on Tuesday. Star players Stefan Savic and Stevan Jovetic are unlikely to be used in Saturday’s clash, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.
The Balkan Dragons, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Romania where Eupen forward Smail Prevljak scored the winner as a substitute. The 27-year-old is pushing for a start, but, as always, Inter ace Edin Dzeko will lead the line for the visitors. Since the Bosnians produced a very good display in their second group game, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting side.
