Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina
EURO 2020 Qualifiers
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Ratinan Stadion, Tampere
Bosnia-Herzegovina travel to Finland for their Matchday 3 clash in Group J desperate for an upset at Ratinan Stadion after being denied points in a thriller 2-2 draw against Greece, where they took a 2-0 lead early on but still conceded a late equalizer to the disappointment of the home crowd.
Dragons have narrowly beaten Armenia in Sarajevo beforehand and bouncing to such a defensive display will be pivotal for Robert Prosinecki, who has based their success on a tough defensive approach and will surely be disappointed with three goals conceded in the first two outings – despite four points to their name.
They have a lot to prove in Finland and the rivals will surely have plans of their own, after seeing a somewhat expected 2-0 loss to Italy on the opening day of the campaign but beat Armenia in Yerevan with goals from Frederik Jensen and Pyry Soiri. We have seen Huuhkajat in great shape through their Nations League campaign and we’ll now surely see them very motivated to do damage against slim betting favourites on Saturday afternoon.
Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Head-to-head
Interestingly, this will be the sides’ only second head-to-head clash ever.
Bosnia bagged a narrow 1-0 win in their 2004 friendly, which does give them ground to build on.
Finland have picked it up over the past couple of years and now have a lot to prove in Group J.
Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Prediction
We will now still back Bosnia-Herzegovina to cause an upset and we’ll go for an Away win at 2.40! We have seen them very tough to beat and we now hope to see them in great shape moving forward, led by captain Edin Dzeko as their prime striking option.
We do expect goals and we feel Bosnian Dragons will have to score that extra goal to secure all three points, as we now also go for YES on Both teams to score at 2.00. Bosnians have let up at the back lately and this could prove costly if they don’t manage to impress in the attacking third.
