Hungary vs Montenegro prediction & free betting tips

Despite Montenegro needing three points more than Hungary, we believe the home side will be too good in front of a crowd who will be in high spirits following Thursday night's result. Given what is on the line for Montenegro, though, expect a basketball-type match with plenty of goals.

Hungary vs Montenegro lineups and latest team news

Hungary

Coming into this international break, Hungary boss Marco Rossi knew he needed just one point from two games to secure Euro 2024 qualification which would have been a relief given the injury problems in his squad. Regulars such as Willi Orban, Laszlo Kleinheisler and Attila Fiola were all unavailable for selection this month but that didn't prevent Rossi's men from getting the job done on Thursday against Bulgaria.

Rossi will be forced to make at least one change to the team that faced Bulgaria as Milos Kerkez was sent off on Thursday. Other than that, Hungary will once again lean on captain Dominik Szoboszlai for creativity in midfield and Martin Adam for goals.

Predicted lineup

Dibusz – Balogh, Szlalai, Lang – Nego, Z.Nagy, Styles, Szoboszlai, A.Nagy – Adam, Nemeth

Montenegro

Montenegro coach, Miodrag Radulović, knows that anything other than three points will see them definitely miss out on Euro 2024 so will surely play an offensive lineup in Hungary on Sunday afternoon. The good news for him and Montenegro is that Steven Jotevic, the nation's all-time top goalscorer, is available and will lead the line alongside Nikola Krstovic.

The bad news for Radulovic is that Stefan Mugosa is unavailable for selection. The striker, who has netted 15 times for his country, was forced to withdraw from the squad earlier this week due to injury and his expertise off the bench will be missed.

Predicted lineup

Mijatovic – Vesovic, Tomasevic, Savic, Radunovic – Osmajic, Kuc, Jankovic, Camaj – Jovetic, Krstovic
