Montenegro vs Poland by Neuro
Montenegro is hosting Poland in the first round of group 8 for the World Cup 2014 Qualifiers. Being drawn together with Ukraine and England, this is surely one of the most important matches for both nations, match that will surely have influence on both nations goal - reaching the second spot, probably behind England.
Montenegro, after failing to reach the Euro 2012 after being eliminated in the play-off round against Czech Republic, will surely try to get the desired spot at World Cup 2014, but this time they will surely have even tougher job - this time their biggest opponents will be English, Ukrainian and Polish sides. They are coming from a 2:0 home win against Latvia in a friendly match played a few weeks ago and the optimism isn't missing in their side for the qualifying stage.
"If we beat Poland tonight, then I doubt that they will be someone to stop us from qualifying to the World Cup 2014!", are the words of their national coach Brnovic. He is expected to have available central defender Marko Basa who comes from a injury. However, Mirko Vucinic, one of the most important offensive players for this side got injured during yesterday's training session and is highly doubtful for this game.

Poland, on the other side, is coming from a 0:1 narrow loss against Estonia in a friendly game played in August. The team failed to reach the second round of Euro 2012, competition that they were hosts and were preparing for full two years for it. While they performed according to their potential, it's still described as a failure in their domestic media as the nation was hoping for much more.
Since then, national team has changed the coach and the newly installed coach Fornalik has no European experience whatsoever and the whole national team is currently in a rebuilding process. They did participate in the Euro 2012, but it's a big question mark whether they would actually got the place, if they were about to participate in the qualifying process as they didn't reach the World Cup two years earlier. Guests will be without Szczesny (goalkeeper), Rybus (winger) for this game.
Cautious approach is expected from both side, still the hosts should be more attacking side in this game. Even without Vucinic, they do have really great offensive part of the team led by Jovetic and Vukcevic, but also Beciraj and newly promoted national team player Kasalica (who scored on his debut against Latvia). The teams are more or less pretty equal, but the odds are simply too high for the hosts win as they seem much closer to the final victory than the guests. In any case, they surely shouldn't lose this one.
