Though neither can qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament, Montenegro and Bulgaria will battle it out for Balkan supremacy on Friday.

Though three games remain on their schedules, the 2020 UEFA Euro qualifiers are effectively over for both Montenegro and Bulgaria, who each sit with just two points at the bottom of the Group A table. But if nothing else, they have Balkan pride to play for when the two countries face off on Friday. However, for “The Brave Falcons” of Montenegro, they may also be playing for a measure of revenge, after a blown penalty call with just 10 minutes to play gave Bulgaria a chance to level the score when the two countries squared off in May, as The Sun recounted.

Without VAR available, the call stood and 26-year-old winger Todor Nedelev converted to give Bulgaria a 1-1 draw. This was the third draw in five meetings between the two Balkan states, a series that has also seen each side win one game. The regional rivals will try to break that deadlock in the match that will stream live from Podgorica.

In fact, the Lions of Bulgaria have lost four consecutive matches, but stand a good chance of scoring against a team that has now kept a home clean sheet in nine of their last 10 games.
