Montenegro host Greece at the Podgorica City Stadium in Podgorica on Monday for an international friendly.

The Brave Falcons lost 1-0 to Armenia on Tuesday, courtesy of a first-half strike from Vahan Bichakhchyan.

It was their second consecutive loss and extended their winless run in all competitions to four games.

In fact, Miodrag Radulović's side have won only thrice since the start of 2021, with all of those wins coming in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, though they were not enough to progress.

Montenegro finished fourth in Group C and now look forward to the UEFA Nations League in June.

Greece also missed their flight to Qatar after coming third in Group B but have started 2022 on a good note.

The Euro 2004 champions beat Romania 1-0 in Bucharest as Andreas Bouchalakis opened his account for the side.

Surprisingly, the Balkan sides have clashed just once before.

That was a friendly game, with Greece prevailing 2-1 in March 2016.

Montenegro

The Brave Falcons lost 1-0 to Armenia on Tuesday in a limp display, so manager Miodrag Radulović may opt to make a few changes.

Igor Ivanovic, who came off the bench, may be reinstated on the right wing to add width, while Danijel Petković may return in goal.

Montenegro vs Greece Prediction

The sides enter the match on the back of contrasting results but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

There's a similar level of quality in both squads and we could see a low-scoring draw here.

Prediction: Montenegro 1-1 Greece
