Gibraltar vs Bosnia-Herzegovina
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group H)
Date: Sunday, 3rd September 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio do Algarve.
In the 8th round, Gibraltar is hosting Bosnia-Herzegovina for a rematch at Estadio do Algarve.
After the 7th round, Gibraltar is still without points; only 3 goals scored, and amazing 33 goals conceded. Naturally, they are positioned at the bottom of the table. Their latest debacle was a visit to the first ranked Belgium. They returned home with not just any loss on their backs, but a 9 – 0 loss, their biggest loss so far in the qualifications; and with a red card for Barnett, too.
The 7th round brought the second loss so far in the qualifications for the third ranked Bosnia-Herzegovina. They played away against Cyprus and, even though they had been favourites, they were defeated with 3 – 2. So, they still have 11 points, but now Cyprus is only a point behind them at the fourth place.
There is still hope for them of going through the group stage. They are only two points behind the second ranked Greece, that unexpectedly tied against Estonia. With an easy fixture that Bosnia-Herzegovina expects, and a tough one against Belgium Greece expects, Bosnia-Herzegovina might have a real shot at taking the second place in the table.
Gibraltar vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Head to head
The first leg of this group stage has been their only head to head encounter so far. Bosnia-Herzegovina won at home a score of 5 – 0.
Gibraltar vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Predictions
Bosnia-Herzegovina needs to be ware of Cyprus lurking from behind their backs, and this fixture is the perfect opportunity for gaining three points easily, thus escaping Cyprus and maybe even moving up to the desired second place. So, we can expect Bosnia-Herzegovina to bring yet another terrible defeat to their hosts.
