Stevan Jovetić believes that "only a win" will suffice for Montenegro as they meet Sweden in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group G.

"We must be honest and admit that we made a terrible mistake when we drew against Liechtenstein. We must compensate for these two lost points and only win against Sweden could improve our situation," said the Manchester City FC forward.

Mirko Vučinić misses out through injury for Montenegro, while Zlatan Ibrahimović remains a doubt for the visitors.

"[Ibrahimović] is not 100% fit and we will not take any risks. We'll see tomorrow. But, even at 70 or 80% Zlatan is still a very important player for us, a player who make the difference," said Sweden coach Erik Hamrén in Podgorica ahead of the tie on Saturday.

"This is very important game for both teams. Montenegro is a contender for a UEFA EURO 2016 place and if win against them away, we would be in very, very good position," Hamrén added.

Mirko Vučinić will not be able to play in Montenegro's crucial game against Sweden on Saturday after failing to recover from a hamstring injury. "Mirko is big player, very important for us, but we must find a way to play without him", said midfielder Elsad Zverotić.

With four points from three matches, Montenegro have drawn with Liechtenstein and lost to Austria in their last outings. "This is not a pleasant situation, but we can recover," said the Fulham FC man. "Sweden are a great team, very compact and experienced and we must be at our best to get a good result. There are no set rules in football. We didn't beat Liechtenstein despite having numerous occasions – so favorites don't win always."
