The Turkish team had surprised everybody with the win over Sweden in UNL. The Swedish side which gave a stupendous performance at the Russian WC was struggling against an inspired Turkish side. It turned out to be one of the best comebacks in world football.
The game ended 3-2, courtesy to a brace from Emre Akbaba. The midfielder who plays for Galatasaray came up with two late goals to win the match against the Blue-Yellow. Not every day you come back from 2-0 down and win the match against a quality side like Sweden.
Turkey will be looking at this game as a practice for the upcoming UNL matches. They are second in the group behind Russia in Nations League. Their win over Sweden will help them to build up their morale and approach the coming games with a positive attitude.
The Crescent-stars will be hoping that their star players Hakan Calhanoglu and Cengiz Under will rise up to the occasion. Both are performing well for their respective club sides in Serie A.
Turkish will need these two to impose their control over a match.Maybe they both will be rested in this game.
Bosnian team which is led by Edin Džeko has won both their competitive matches in UNL. They sit at the top of the group with 6 points above Northern Ireland and Austria. Miralem Pjanić has been the playmaker for both his country and his club. The little magician reads the game well and helps is teammates to play without worry.
In their last UNL match against Austria they won 1-0 at home.
