Serbia vs Montenegro Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Serbia

After another loss to Hungary on Saturday, Serbia is in a must-win situation versus a team that can still overtake them and move to second place. Serbia's advantage is their home field and a better h2h record against Montenegro.

Possible lineup: V. Milinkovic-Savic, Pavlovic, Milenkovic, Erakovic, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Gudelj, Zivkovic, Kostic, Gacinovic, Lukic, Mitrovic.

Montenegro

The visiting team never took part in a major tournament and this is an opportunity that was a long time coming. However, it is still a difficult situation in which they must defeat Serbia away from home to earn their chance. Montenegro's only defeat in the group stage thus far was against Serbia at home.

Possible lineup: Petkovic, Tuci, Vukcevic, Rubezic, Radunovic, Camaj, Kuc, Raickovic, Radulovic, Bakic, Jovetic.

Player to Watch: Filip Kostic

He didn't start in a defeat against Hungary, but Filip Kostic should get the nod in the first eleven versus Montenegro. The Juventus midfielder has been a staple in Serbia's national team for the past eight years accumulating 57 appearances and scoring three goals.

This season, however, has been tough for the 30-year-old who started only half of the six Serie A matches that he played for Juventus without scoring a goal, even though he has an assist on the record. Kostic previously played in the Bundesliga for Eintracht Frankfurt.
