After picking up his first winner of the week, Kev's looking for another one from the UEFA Nations League.

"Both teams have found the net in just two of Montenegro's last ten matches."

Back No in the Both Teams To Score market at [1.85]

Local rivals to cancel each other out

Sometimes consolation goals can be the bettor's best friend. Hendon were 4-0 down at Chippenham Town, with their FA Cup dream in tatters, but they pulled a goal back to land our BTTS bet.

We'll switch our attention to international football now, because Montenegro are up against Serbia in the Nations League, and I'd be surprised if we saw many goals.

Montenegro are a hardy bunch who don't give much away. They started their Nations League campaign with a goalless draw away to Romania, and then beat Lithuania 2-0. They have only lost one of their last six matches, and they have kept four clean sheets during that sequence.

Serbia were the favourites to win this section of UEFA's new competition, and they have collected four points thanks to a 2-2 draw with Romania and a 1-0 win in Lithuania. In friendlies and Nations League games, they have won three of their last four away games to nil.

Montengro are defensively solid, as are Serbia, and it's tough to see the attacking players having much joy here. I'll happily back No in the Both Teams To Score market, as that bet has landed in five of Serbia's last eight games, and eight of Montenegro's last ten.
