Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Montenegro and Norway take on each other at Stadion Pod Goricom in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. Montenegro kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign in style, with the team beating both Latvia (2-1) and Gibraltar (4-1) in the first two group games, and, no doubt, they want to keep their 100% record intact. New Montenegro attacker Uros Djurdjevic obviously helped the team improve their game, and given Stevan Jovetic’s fine form, we predict that the hosts will find the net in Tuesday’s match.
Midfielder Marko Bakic is sidelined with injury, while both Stefan Savic and Stevan Jovetic return to the starting XI. Norway, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Turkey, and given their attacking potential, we believe that Erling Haland and Co. will find the net in the Stadion Pod Goricom clash as well. Norway midfielder Kristian Thorsvedt is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Nikola Vukcevic):
Nikola Vukcevic is yet another Montenegro footballer who plays for Braga as a midfielder. The 184-cm-tall player was born in Podgorica on 13 December, 1991. Vukcevic began his senior career at his hometown club Buducnost Podgorica and he was part of the team from 2010 to 2013.
The Montenegro footballer scored four goals in 65 league appearances for the club. In 2013 he joined Braga as a free player and he initially played for the reserve team. After making 31 appearances for Braga B he made his debut for the first team against Vitoria, coming from the bench in the stoppage time. Speaking of his international career, Nikola Vukcevic made his Montenegro debut against Ghana on 5 March, 2014 in a friendly game.
The Hrabri sokoli defeated the Black Stars back then. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he plays as a central midfielder and as attacking midfielder as well. Nikola’s contract with Braga expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Norway):
Norway are a Nordic side that participated three times at the FIFA World Cup finals (1938, 1994 and 1998). The Norwegians were producing fine performances at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, with the team setting up a meeting with Italy in the last 16 of the showpiece tournament thanks to a 2-1 win over Brazil in their last group match.
However, the Azzurri proved to be a big catch for Norway and thanks to Bobo Vieri’s goal the Italians made it to the quarter-finals. Norway only once qualified for the European Championship finals, with the team suffering elimination in the group stages of the 2000 tournament in Belgium and Netherlands. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the most famous Norwegian player and it is well known that he helped Manchester United beat Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.
The “Baby-faced” striker scored the winner for the Red Devils in the dying seconds of the match. Norway play their home games at Ullevaal Stadion, which was opened in September, 1926. The capacity of the venue is 28.000.
