Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Italy Prediction
Bosnia had a tough fixture the last game week, as they were on the road, against Greece. The first half did end on even terms, as the hosts’ goal was equalized just five minutes later by the Bosnians. However, with just two minutes remaining till the final whistle, the Greeks forced an own goal, to secure the victory.
Meanwhile, the Italians had a whopper of a match the same game week. Against Liechtenstein, on the road, the table-toppers had a fantastic battle. Despite being on the road, the four-time world champions recorded five goals in a row, and that too without conceding even once.
The pace actually was picked up in the second half, as in the final twenty minutes of the match-up, four goals were added by the visitors. Finally, the game ended 0-5 in favor of the guests.
This upcoming match-day, the Italians will easily be the favorites. They are at the top of the table and have won all eight of their matches in the qualification campaign. They have scored a total of 25 goals in the process, with no one else even managing to touch the 20-goal mark. Defense-wise, the team has conceded a total of mere three goals, while the Bosnians have let in almost five times that number.
Moreover, Herzegovina has just three wins to show for, from their efforts in the prior ten match-ups, whereas Italy is on an impressive nine-game winning run, and scored twice or more in their preceding eight battles. They have also kept clean sheets in eight of their former eleven clashes too.
Finally, the Italians also had won the reverse match of this upcoming game, and for sure, are on the front-foot to post all three points against Bosnia, this Friday.
