The third match between Montenegro and Cyprus has ended without a winner - after 2:2 and 1:1 nine years ago in the qualifications for the 2010 World Cup, the game also ended in a draw with no goals in a friendly match in Nicosia, reports Vijesti on March 23, 2018.
There was not much excitement, nor a steady rhythm, which was expected because the games between these two nations mostly lacked any charm.
Montenegro had two good opportunities to score against Cyprus. Jovetić's 25-meter shot was saved by the goalkeeper Padro, first hitting the crossbar and then going out for a corner kick.
In the second half, Jovović's shot, which was deflected by a Cypriot defender, also ended up hitting the crossbar then going out for a corner kick.
The host team was better in the second half and had two very dangerous situations over Sotiriou, whose first shot ended right in Mijatović, and then a header which ended up over the goal.
Montenegro plays against Turkey in Podgorica on Tuesday.
