Kosovo needs a win against Balkan rivals Montenegro to keep their UEFA Euro 2020 qualification hopes alive.

While Montenegro is only playing for pride, with no chance to qualify for the UEFA 2020 European Championships, as The Inquisitr reported, the country plays its second Balkan derby of the weekend against a team that faces a must-win situation to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Even though Kosovo sits in third place in Group A with eight points, the last time the Dardanians faced their Balkan rivals — which was also the first time the two teams had met — Montenegro held Kosovo to a frustrating 1-1 draw.

England will be the first team to secure advancement out of the group with a win over Bulgaria — but only if Kosovo fails to take all three points from Montenegro in the match that will stream live from Pristina.

To find out how to watch a live online stream of the Kosovo vs. Montenegro UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier Group A match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Central European Summer Time at the 13,500-seat Fadil Vokrri Stadium, previously known as Pristina City Stadium, in Pristina, Kosovo, on Monday, October 14.

In Montenegro, the livestream will also begin at 8:45 p.m., as the Balkan state lies in the same time zone as Kosovo.

In the United Kingdom, the game gets underway at 7:45 p.m. British Summer Time on Monday. In the United States, kickoff will take place at 2:45 p.m. ET, 11:45 a.m. PT. In India, the livestream gets underway starting at 12:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning, October 15, India Standard Time.

The first match between the two countries took place in June, in front of an empty stadium in Montenegro due to earlier crowd trouble leading UEFA to penalize the country. The lackluster atmosphere was reflected on the pitch, as Milot Rashica scored Kosovo’s only goal in the first half, only to see Montenegro Captain Stefan Mugosa nail the equalizer in the second half, as Sporting Pedia reported.

Kosovo have suffered defeat only once in their most recent 17 matches — and even in the loss to England, they jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. England responded with five of their own in the first 45 minutes. Still, the spirited Kosovo squad tallied twice more only to lose 5-3.
