Montenegro vs Austria by Levsky

Montenegro
VS
Austria
It has been a brilliant few months for the Austrian national team who have made it through European Championship qualifying for the first time. It has been no fluke either and has nothing to do with the extra places available this year given Austria have already won the group with 2 games to play having taken an outstanding 22 points from their 8 games.

 

There will be nothing friendly about the atmosphere in Podgorica on Friday night though with Montenegro fighting it out with Sweden and Russia for what for them is likely to be at best a play-off place.

 

Montenegro have only been defeated 4 times competitively at the intimidating Stadion Pod Goricom and were it not for crowd violence causing their qualifier last year to be awarded as a 3-0 win to Russia they may very well have been coming into this game in 2nd place in the group.

 

Aside from that win in Sweden, Austria haven't been quite as dominant as the group table might suggest. 5 of their wins have been by just a single goal and they made hard work of their two games with Moldova, winning 2-1 and 1-0.

 

Montenegro desperately need all 3 points with a trip to Russia still to come and their qualification chances could be over if they fail to get them.

I agree with you. It should show in the game that austria is already through and home side should have huge motivation in this one. I took my chance from bet365 with huge odds; homewin&over2,5, good luck mate

I am ready to bet on 1 or 1 DNB. But I have thought about it many times in previous bets: "Is motivation enough?". The Austrians are not going to play to win?. Maybe without pressure they are more dangerous.
Additionally, the volumes on the exchange markets (Betfair) show preference to the away win. Another question: Should we bet against the markets?
