Finland conceded a late goal in their previous outing against Bosnia-Herzegovina, while Montenegro scored a late goal to double their lead in their previous game. While Huuhkajat have home advantage in this game, it did not work out for them last time around.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides and, given their better form, we back the visitors to eke out a narrow win in this match.
Prediction: Finland 1-2 Montenegro
