The Montenegro vs Ghana friendly match will be played this Wednesday, March 5, 2014 (9:00 AM Pacific) at Stadion pod Goricom in Podgorica. Ghana is looking forward to the World cup in Brazil, while Montenegro will have an opportunity to see how they fare against strong national team.
Montenegro coach Branko Brnovic will be without the help of the two biggest stars in his team, Manchester City’s Stevan Jovetic and Juventus’ Mirko Vucinic, who are out because of injuries.
On the other hand, Kwesi Appiah has all the stars in his setup, so Ghana will be clear favorites to clinch a win in Podgorica.
Ghana should be in a better form at the moment, since they’ve played the African Cup of Nations in January and February. Ghana reached final game, but they were defeated by Lybia on penalties.
Montenegro played their last game in November against the weak Luxembourg, and won that match by 4 goals to 1.
Brnovic called these players:
Goalkeepers: Mladen Bozovic(Tom) and Vukasin Poleksic (Keckemet)
Defenders: Savo Pavicevic(Red Star), Marko Simic (Kayseri), Marko Basa (Lille), Stefan Savic (Fiorentina), Zarko Tomaševic (Kortijk), Vladimir Volkov, (Partizan), Marko Vesović (Torino), Vladimir Bozovic, (Mordovia)
Midfielders: Nikola Drincic (Partizan), Branko Boskovic(Rapid Vienna), Nemanja Nikolic(Dinamo Minsk), Elsad Zverotic (Fulham), Nikola Vukcevic(Braga), Marko Cetkovic (Buducnost), Blazo Igumanovic(Rudar)

Montenegro vs Ghana Prediction
It will be interesting to see how the battle in the middle of the pitch will evolve, since both teams have their best players exactly packed in midfield. Nikola Drincic and Branko Boskovic are the most experienced and best players coach Brnovic has, but they will have a hard task dealing with the Ghana stars – Prince Boateng, Essien and Muntari.
Whoever succeeds in taking the ball possession from their opponents, that team will probably prevail and win the match at the end. Considering all the facts, the prediction is that the Montenegro vs Ghana match will end in a 1-0 victory for the African side.
