Bosnia-Herzegovina Prediction – Can Bosnia-H stake last claim?

Time is running out fast for Bosnia-Herzegovina to stake one last claim for a top two finish and they could hardly have asked for a more difficult fixture than facing Group J leaders, Italy, in their penultimate match of the group stages, needing all three points in order to just stay in the race.

It’s been a campaign of two halves for Bosnia-Herzegovina as they still remain unbeaten at home with a solid looking record of 3-1-0 13/4 to their name, but their efforts on home soil have been undermined by a wretched sequence of results away from home which has seen them lose all 4 of their matches on the road with defeats at Finland, Italy, Armenia and Greece.

However, back to results at home and victories over Armenia, Liechtenstein and most impressive of all, a resounding 4-1 win against Finland gives Friday night’s hosts a fighting chance, especially as Bosnia-H are unbeaten in their last 9 home matches in Euro qualifiers.

The fact that 2nd placed Finland play host to bottom side Liechtenstein though could have a major bearing on Bosnia-H’s and Armenia’s immediate hopes.

Italy Prediction – Can Italy finish with 100% record?

Having won all 8 games to date in Group J, Italy sit proudly top of the group with a 100% record, winning 4 at home and all 4 of their matches away from home too, and no doubt will be looking to round things off on the road with victory in Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday night before returning home to face Armenia.

Italy definitely seem to be a team back on the rise again under Roberto Mancini as they not only possess a 100% winning record in these Euro 2020 qualifiers but they’ve also won their last 12 Euro qualifiers on the trot too.

In addition, Italy are unbeaten in their last 19 matches away from home in Euro qualifiers, so even though Bosnia-Herzegovina possess an unbeaten record at home in Group J so far in this campaign, the hosts will do well to get anything out of this impressive Italian outfit.

Within this 19-match unbeaten sequence on the road, Italy have also kept a total of 8 clean sheets as their upturn in fortunes has been built upon a solid defensive unit.

 

Key-Facts – Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Italy

  • Bosnia-H are unbeaten in their last 9 home matches in Euro qualifiers
  • Italy are unbeaten in their last 19 matches away from home in Euro qualifiers
  • Italy won the previous meeting against Bosnia-H 2-1 at home

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Bosnia-Herzegovina have been impressive at home but they’ve already suffered defeat to Italy and they’ll face another tough test against Italy on Friday night despite holding home advantage.
