Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Belgium
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group H)
Date: 7th October 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Grbavica.
Belgium are one of rare European teams to have already secured the top spot in their respective group and the direct qualification for the World Cup in Russia 2018.
The Red Devils will thus travel to Sarajevo to take on Bosnia-Herzegovina in the penultimate 9th round of the competition without significant ambitions, but they are still favourites with all of theirs tars in a fantastic shape.
The Dragons, on the other side, are desperate to pick up the victory which would keep them in the battle for the second position and the playoffs.
Mehmed Bazdarevic and his men missed out on a huge opportunity to finish the job earlier when they dropped a two-goal cushion against Cyprus to lose the match 3-2 at the end a month ago.
The hosts will be handicapped without one of their best players Miralem Pjanic who is sidelined, but the good news is a promising form for their top scorer Edin Dzeko who bagged a fabulous goal in Roma’s away win at Milan last weekend.
The visitors collected 22 points from eight matches and they actually helped the Bosnians by beating Greece away from home in September thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s late goal.
Man United’s striker has been enjoying a spell of excellent form at the start of the season and he notched four goals in last three matches.
Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Belgium: Head to head
The head to head tie is all square at three wins for each of the sides, but Belgium were much more successful in last two clashes with Bosnia (3-1 and 4-0).
Eden Hazard, Toby Alderweireld and Romelu Lukaku were on target in a demolishing victory for the Red Devils at the start of the qualifying campaign at Stade Roi Baudouin.
Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Belgium: Prediction
Even though Bosnia will have a much greater motive, we’ll stick to Belgian quality and back the Red Devils to pick up another victory at the odds of 11/8.
You can also take Romelu Lukaku to score anytime at 6/4.
