Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina UEFA Nations League Prediction by LeagueLane

Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 4 June 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium.

Bosnia were part of the top-most league in the previous edition of the Nations League, but as expected they could not hold on to this prestigious position. At the end of the campaign, they were relegated to the lower division and now they will have to spend at least one season in League B.

They are going through a worrying stretch of performances and are letting in goals in huge numbers. And one huge reason would be their presence in the top-most tier of the competition, where they were pitted against some of the absolute best teams in the world.

It also needs to be mentioned that they failed to secure a ticket to the upcoming Qatar World Cup, which will further have reduced their confidence and momentum.

Meanwhile the Finns were part of League B itself and they had narrowly missed out on promotion below Wales the last time around. Since then, they failed to qualify for the World Cup, as they had to settle for a 3rd place finish below Ukraine and France.

They too are finding it hard to keep clean sheets consistently and have let in goals quiet in plenty in high-pressure fixtures. Going on goals have also come in plenty whenever these 2 teams have locked horns with each other in the past.

For these reasons, anticipate a high-scoring thriller this Saturday between the 2 squads.

Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last 3 encounters in a row had 4 or more goals.
  • The past 3 meetings also had goals from both teams.

Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina Prediction & Analysis

The Finns were winless in 14 of their past 18 overall fixtures and they had let in two or more goals in 4 of their past 7 games. Do also note that they have won just once at home in their past 10 appearances.

On the other hand, the Bosnians had lost 4 of their past 5 overall games, and they had remained winless in 20 of their past 23 fixtures. In addition, they had also remained so in 15 of the past 17 road trips, and during this stretch they had also gone on a 5-fixture losing streak.

Taking into account these observations, expect a goal-fest this Saturday.
