The quality may be far from top, but the Meridianbet First Montenegrin Football League this season brings with it what is most loved in sports - a dramatic finish, at the top and at the bottom.

There are only five rounds left until the end of the domestic championship, and four teams who are separated by only six points - Dečić (57), Budućnost (54), Sutjeska (52) and Mornar (51) have the right to dream of the title.

At the same time, it will be hellish at the bottom of the table, where three teams are fighting to avoid last place and relegation, and later to preserve their first league status through the barrage - Jedinstvo is very close to a calmer harbor with 28 points, while Mladost (25) and Rudar are expecting a much more difficult task. (24).

And, precisely Saturday and the 32nd round will be as exciting as never before and will bring direct clashes between the four from the top, but also a match to escape from the bottom between the clubs from Donja Gorica and Pljevlja.

When it comes to the battle for the title, Dečić is in the "pole position", while it will be the hardest for Mornar, but the very next round could solve a lot of things, given that the team from Bar welcomes the team from Tuza, and in the biggest Montenegrin derby they meet The future and Sutjeska.

There are many possible outcomes of the 32nd round, but a possible victory by the Sailors and a draw under Gorica would only completely seal things in the end and practically all four teams from the top would have a chance to be crowned in the end.

It is difficult to predict who has an easier schedule until the end, considering that the days after the 32nd round will bring several crossovers between the top teams, but for now everything is in Dečić's hands.

It seems that at the bottom equally difficult tests await each of the three teams, with the fact that the last round will also bring one of their mutual clashes - between Mladost and Jedinstva at the "DG Arena".

Five rounds to go - four wishes for the title, three to continue life in the 1st CFL.
