Austria v Bosnia-Herzegovina Prediction & Match Preview

Austria v Bosnia-Herzegovina
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 15 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ernst-Happel-Stadion (Vienna).

Bosnia-Herzegovina need a point in Vienna to secure the top spot finish in the League B Group 3. The Dragons have a maximum nine-point record from three games so far and are as many as six points clear off Austria in second place. However, a potential win here would grant Austrians a chance to move lock on points with Bosnia-Herzegovina with a victory over Northern Ireland on Sunday.

The visitors may have not been dominant on the court in any of three Nations League affairs, but their stern defensive displays guided them through to wins in each game so far. It was Roma’s talisman Edin Dzeko who did the most part at the other end. Dzeko is League B’s top scorer with three goals in three games. He was just the one who made the difference against Austria in the match played in September in Zenica (1-0 win for Bosnians). The visitors conceded only two goals in last eight games (five friendlies and three Nations League matches) under Robert Prosinecki.

Austria vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Head-to-head

This will be the fifth head to head encounter between the two teams.

The draw was most common of outcomes happening on two occasions, while teams snatched a single win apiece so far.

We have to mention that none of four H2H affairs saw three or more goals scored.

Austria vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Prediction

The Under 2.5 goals FT is certainly the best of betting options you can take for this match. Both teams were fairly tough to break down in recent outings, especially Bosnians who are expected to park the bus and defend the draw here.

All of last four games Austria played also saw fewer than three goals scored. You can back the Under 2.5 goals bet at the sky-high 1.80 odds here. Since we expect a very tight affair, the alternative bet would be Under 0.5 goals in the first half at 2.75.

Austria vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Under 0.5 goals in the first half @ 2.75 (7/4).
