Our football match prediction:
Montenegro were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Poland in their last qualifier, but Borussia Dortmund full-back Lukasz Piszczek eventually scored a late winner for Adam Nawalka’s troops. To make things even worse for the fans, the Montenegrins suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Iran in Sunday’s warm-up game and it has to be noted that they are on a three-game losing run ahead of the visit of Armenia. Montenegro are still in the race for a place at the 2018 World Cup finals, meaning that Saturday’s football match is of big importance for the hosts. Armenia showed character in a 2-0 win over Kazakhstan in their last qualifying match, but beating Montenegro on the road is easier said than done. Henrikh Mikhtaryan found the net against the Kazaks and, no doubt, the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Stadion Pod Goricom.
Highlighted Player (Yura Movsisyan):
Yura Movsisyan is a Real Salt Lake City footballer who plays for Armenian national team as well. Movsisyan was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, but his family moved to the United States while he was a boy and, as a result, he started his youth career at Pasadena Lancers. Following a one year of college soccer, Kansas City Wizards chiefs offered him a professional contract. The Armenian attacker scored five goals in 28 league appearances for the Wizards and in 2007 he signed for Real Salt Lake City. After spending two seasons at the MLS club, Movsisyan moved to Europe, signing a deal with Danish side Randers. Speaking of his stay in Russia, the Armenia international played for the likes of Krasnodar and Spartak Moscow and he scored no less than 48 goals in the Russian top flight. In 2017 he returned to Salt Lake City and he is expected to play an important role in Jeff Cassar’s team in the 2017 MLS campaign. Movsisyan made his Armenia debut on August 11, 2010 in a friendly against Iran.
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.
