Finland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina Match Preview
Bosnia-Herzegovina travel to Tampere for their Matchday 3 EURO 2020 Qualifiers clash with four points to their name after two outings, where they beat Armenia (2-1) quite confidently and dropped important points in a 2-2 thriller against Greece – as Robert Prosinecki’s men gambled away a two-goal lead.
Dragons have seen goals coming from all directions and this will be more of a confidence booster but they will be without suspended Miralem Pjanic, who is their creative power in the midfield. They will now have a lot to prove in search of points to bag a top 2 spot ahead of the clash in Italy early next week.
Finland will surely prove no easy nut to crack, though, and we’ve seen them do so in a 2-0 loss in Italy as well as a 0-2 win in Armenia which has them sitting just a point behind 2nd placed Greece and 3rd placed Bosnia-Herzegovina as they surely have hopes still early in the campaign.
Huuhkajat have a great defensive tally in front of the home fans to keep up as well, where they kept clean sheets in four of the last five competitive outings here. With that in mind, we now hope for another great challenge and a very narrow contest at Ratinan Stadion on Saturday.
We will stick our necks out for Bosnia-Herzegovina to turn it their way, though, and come away with all three points in a win priced at 6/4 with William Hill – which does seem a bit overpriced despite a tough challenge for the Dragons looming.
Indeed, we don’t feel we’re in for many goals and just one could untangle the contest, as we now also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with bet365. We’ve seen Bosnia-Herzegovina lose on their defensive stability but it feels they’ll have to rediscover it if they’re to snatch the points now.
