Montenegro will be hoping that they can keep up the pressure on Group G leaders England with a win over Bulgaria this weekend.
International football betting regulars will know that Zlatko Kranjcar’s side have already upset the odds with an impressive start to their qualifying campaign.
And they will be hoping that the result of Saturday night’s game will be a repeat of the victory they earned in Sofia last September.
That victory was the first of three successive 1-0 wins that have provided the platform for Montenegro to push for a place at Euro 2012.
The home side are favourites for this clash at 17/20, while football betting fans can back Bulgaria at 3/1. The draw is priced at 49/20 and could be a good outside bet, with neither side particularly prolific in front of goal.
Indeed, Montenegro have scored just three goals from their four games so far and Bulgaria have only found the net on one occasion.
As such, the 9/5 odds on Montenegro winning the game to nil could prove tempting for Euro 2012 betting enthusiasts.
Similarly, betting on the game to be a low-scoring affair could well be popular among punters. bwin.com offers odds of 11/2 on the game producing no goals, while those expecting to see the net bulge can get odds of 16/5 and 13/5 on the match seeing one and two goals respectively.
While they have been unable to really impose themselves in front of goal, Montenegro’s defence has been the star of the show. No goals have been conceded in their four games so far in this competition.
This compares to the five that have slipped though the Bulgarian defence.
Past games played between the two sides also prove inconclusive, with a win, a draw and a loss apiece in the last three meetings.
However, home advantage and recent form appears to favour the Montenegrins and betting on them to score the first goal of the game could prove popular. They can be backed at 13/20, with a winning £10 bet returning £16.50.
