The hosts will be looking to boost up the momentum ahead of the EC Qualifications as their performances in most recent friendlies were by no means promising.

Michael O’Neill saw his men struggle to create in the final third failing to find the back of the net against the likes of Panama and Costa Rica.

Green and White Army might have problems in the build-up play here as well as a very tight affair is expected when they host Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The visitors had an underwhelming WC qualifying campaign which caused the change on the bench as Robert Prosinecki took over Mehmed Bazdarevic.

The team plays very tight under the Croatian manager who guided Bosnia to two wins, three draws and one loss in six tests so far. The visitors shipped just two goals in the process.

Northern Ireland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Head-to-head

The two teams did not have the chance to play each other in the past.

Northern Ireland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina: Prediction

We have the impression of hosts being underestimated here at 2.87 to win the match.

Yes, Bosnia-Herzegovina have two world class players in the likes of Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic, but Robert Prosinecki will have plenty of issues with his team’s defensive line through injuries here.

On the other side, O’Neill will practically have the best squad possible, including the likes of Kyle Lafferty and Will Grigg who are expected to feature up front.

Lafferty returned to Rangers where he looks to be enjoying his time at the start of the new Premiership season and he could be a massive threat to the weakened Bosnian defense on the afternoon.

The value is definitely strong in backing the hosts not to lose in Belfast at 1.50. Braver tipsters can also shoot for the home win at 2.87.
