Both of these two nations will be hoping for better when 2023 comes around.
Slovakia endured a torrid time in the Nations League this year, winning just twice in a League C group that featured Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Belarus.
Štefan Tarkovič was sacked in the midst of that campaign, with his successor Samuel Slovák lasting a mere two games.
Francesco Calzona took over ahead of the September window, but saw his team beaten at home by Azerbaijan, before a 1-1 draw with Belarus.
So, the Falcons are not going into next year’s Euro 2024 qualifiers with much optimism at all.
Unlike their visitors, Montenegro have never qualified for a major tournament to date.
The Brave Falcons avoided Nations League relegation in September, surviving by virtue of a superior head-to-head record over Romania.
Nevertheless, Miodrag Radulović's team have now won just 11 of their last 38 competitive outings.
So, who will enjoy a rare victory at Stadion pod Goricom?
