Bosnia & Herzegovina – Finland, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BOSNIA - FINLAND
The problems for Bosnia are constantly increasing. Obviously, their chances of reaching Euro 2020 through the groups are not great. The situation is as follows – they have collected 5 points less than Finland and 2 less than Armenia. If we assume that Bosnia will not win all 3 games until the end and go at least against Italy, for example, even if they win today they will collect about 17 points and Finland have a match with Liechtenstein and the Armenian side at home. So basically if Bosnia does not win today their chances are actually over.
The Finns finally cracked down on defense and failed to take anything from their home match against Italy. Still, it happened in one half, but the Italians are currently booming. Finland knows Bosnia’s capabilities and will certainly be very organized in defense. The Finns are a team that is difficult to concede goals, and in the front positions is so clinical.
Expert view : There is a very important factor in the match here, and it is that Dzeko will not play. This is Bosnia’s star and top scorer. This fact makes the potential victory for Bosnia even more difficult. It is no accident that the odds are so raised. This is also one of the reasons to think that the 1st half will be very closed and there will be no risk. We expect to see some chances in 1st half that will not be realized. Prediction – 1st Half – Draw at 2.00.
Bosnia has no goal in their last 5 home games in the 1st half
Finland allowed only 1 goal in their 3 away games from Italy
