Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Armenia Match Preview
Bosnia-Herzegovina have finished 2018 strong and topped the Nations League B Group 3 with confident displays against Northern Ireland (2-0 win) and Austria (goalless draw), only to see their nine-match unbeaten streak ended by Spain in a narrow 1-0 loss at Estadio de Gran Canaria.
Dragons have been rock-solid at the back and it showed in Spain too, which was only their first goal conceded in five outings across competitions. We now hope for more of the same at Stadion Grbavica and Robert Prosinecki’s men should be able to get it as they host Armenia for their EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash.
Armenia have, on the other hand, finished their Nations League campaign with points against Macedonia (4-0), Gibraltar (2-6), and Liechtenstein (2-2) and boast great goalscoring records. However, they still failed to make it to the Leauge C with a five-point gap to the 1st placed Macedonia.
Havaqakan haven’t really been able to impress in the final third away from home and this will be more worrying for Armen Gyulbudaghyants. Causing an upset at Grbavica will obviously be even more of a challenge and we don’t see them making it happen on Saturday evening.
We’ll thus back Bosnia-Herzegovina to secure the points and do so with confidence, as we go for a Home win to Nil at Evens with Paddy Power – which has caught a lot of support after the Dragons’ rock-solid defensive displays under Robert Prosinecki.
However, we feel it will be no smooth sailing for the home side and we feel this should prove a tough deadlock to break, as we also go for a low-scoring contest and Under 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with William Hill. We’ve seen such matches in all of Bosnia’s last five outings and this feels like further evidence for such an approach.
