Greece v Bosnia & Herzegovina Betting Tips – UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier, 15th October 19.45pm

Greece welcome Bosnia & Herzegovina to the Olympic Stadium in Athens on Tuesday evening for a vital UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier. It’s all to play for in Group J with three fixtures left, as only two points separate Finland in second to Armenia and Bosnia in second and third respectively. Roberto Mancini’s Italy have won the group, picking up maximum points from seven games, leaving just one automatic spot left.

Greece News and Form – Can the Greeks keep their slim hopes alive?

Despite taking just five points from seven qualifiers, Greece’s qualification hopes are not over just yet. Victory on Tuesday will take them to within two points of Bosnia. However, results will have to go their way if they are to make the finals via the top two route.

The Greeks have lost four of their seven qualifiers, winning just once along the way. That sole victory came on matchday one, when goals from Kostas Fortounis and Anastasios Donis gave them a 2-0 win over Liechtenstein in Vaduz back in March. Since then, they have taken just two points from six Group J matches.

Bosnia & Herzegovina News and Form – Will the Golden Lilies make it back-to-back wins?

Robert Prosinecki’s Bosnia & Herzegovina are currently fourth out of six in Group J, but their automatic dreams of reaching the 2020 European Championship finals are still well and truly alive. Bosnia are just two points behind Finland, and they are level on points with Armenia.

Last Saturday, Bosnia picked up a stunning 4-1 win over Finland at the Bilino Polje Stadium in Zenica. Juventus star Miralem Pjanic was the hero, scoring twice in the comfortable victory. With Armenia only managing to draw with minnows Liechtenstein, Prosinecki’s men are right back in the mix for a top two finish.

After travelling to Athens to face Greece on Tuesday, Bosnia’s next match is against Italy in Zenica in November. The Golden Lilies then end their qualifying campaign with a trip to Vaduz to take on Lichtenstein.

Bosnia & Herzegovina to win and both teams to score at 9/2

Greece v Bosnia & Herzegovina Predictions

Bosnia & Herzegovina win: When these two sides met in Zenica back in March, Greece came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2. Bosnia raced into a two-goal lead after just 15 minutes, but Miralem Pjanic’s red card 20 minutes into the second half completely changed the game, swinging the pendulum in Greece’s favour.

Bosnia will not want to make the same mistake again, and I fancy them to take all three points from Tuesday’s clash in Athens. bet365 are offering the very tempting price of 9/2 for the away side to win and both teams to score.

Roma ace Edin Dzeko, who has scored three goals during qualifying, will miss out through injury. Therefore, Prosinecki will be looking elsewhere for goals. Miralem Pjanic was on the scoresheet before being sent off in the reverse match in Zenica, and I can see him netting against the Greeks again. The Juve man, who also has three qualifying goals to his name, is available at 15/2 to score first.
