Two sides who put in valiant Euro 2024 qualifying efforts, albeit with no rewards, are set to clash in Turkey on Monday as Montenegro face off against North Macedonia in an international friendly in Turkey.  

Montenegro finished third in their qualifying group, just three points behind a very talented Serbia side in second, while North Macedonia managed a respectable eight points in a difficult section including England, Italy and Ukraine. They are two closely matched sides and it promises to be an intriguing affair in Antalya on Monday evening (17:00). Here are our Montenegro vs North Macedonia Betting Tips which include team news and match odds.

Montenegro vs North Macedonia Betting Tips

  • Both teams to score @ 4/5  
  • 1-1 Correct Score @ 11/2 
     

Team News
New head coach Robert Prosinecki used Montenegro's match with Belarus to assess his squad and it would be no surprise to see him rotate heavily again.  

Stefan Savic and Stefan Mugosa missed out in the Brave Falcons’ win last Thursday but could return, with star men Adam Marusic and Stevan Jovetic likely to keep their places in attack. 

North Macedonia’s squad is not quite as deep as their opponents’ but Blagoja Milevski could still bring in the likes of Aleksandar Trajkovski, who did not feature in their last match, and Agon Elezi into the starting lineup.  

Match Odds 

The market suggests there is little between this pair, with Montenegro 6/4, North Macedonia 15/8 and the draw 9/4 

Both teams to score is a bet that makes great appeal and can be backed at 4/5, with over 2.5 goals available at 11/10 

Both teams to score @ 4/5

On paper, Montenegro have the squad to really dominate proceedings in Antalya, with the likes of Jovetic, Marusic and Savic all proven European stars.  

However, their form in recent international breaks has been nothing to shout about, with only five wins from their last 15 outings, suggesting things may be closer than expected when they clash with North Macedonia on Monday.  

The designated away side have managed some solid results in their recent matches, most notably when taking a point off both England and Italy during their Euro 2024 qualification campaign.  

They have an impressive knack of scoring too, netting twice in their reverse fixture with Italy as well as bagging a couple against a talented Ukraine side during qualifying too.  

The Lynxes have drawn a blank in only two of their last 13 games and given six of Montenegro’s last eight matches have seen both teams find the net, the same bet should be backed on Monday. 

Both teams to score at 4/5

1-1 Correct Score  @ 11/2

With plenty to like about both sides but little to split them when it comes down to the finer details, it seems likely they will each leave Antalya with a share of the spoils.  

Montenegro’s only wins in their last four games came against Bulgaria and Belarus, sides significantly worse than North Macedonia, suggesting they may struggle to take the win on Monday.  

A 1-1 draw has been the scoreline in the Lynxes last two outings and it could pay to back the same outcome on Monday at generous odds of 11/2.  

1-1 correct score at 11/2
