Montenegro aim to complete Swiss double

Montenegro will look to complete the double over Switzerland having defeated the Alpine nation 1-0 in the nations' first meeting at any level in Podgorica in October.

Switzerland will look to avenge an earlier Group G defeat in Montenegro's first away game under their new coach, Branko Brnović.

• With Zlatko Kranjčar in charge, Montenegro beat Switzerland 1-0 in the nations' first meeting at any level on 8 October 2010. Mirko Vučinić struck with 22 minutes remaining to snatch all three points.

• If selected, Montenegro right-back Elsad Zverotić could provide some useful insights into Swiss football. Capped by the Nati at Under-18 level, he has spent his entire career in Switzerland, representing FC Bazenheid, FC Wil 1900, FC Luzern and now BSC Young Boys.
