Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Italy Betting Tips
For Italy, the job’s already done. This national team has qualified for EURO 2020. Even though two matches are left to be played in their group, the Italians can simply relax and enjoy those games. Whatever happens in the two remaining rounds, Italy will not lose their spot in the next year’s tournament.
When it comes to their next opponent, Bosnia and Herzegovina, they still have a theoretical chance to get to EURO 2020 as well. However, the chances for such a scenario to actually play out are close to zero. The thing is that Finland, the team that’s in second place in the group (the final spot that leads to the EUROS), has 5 points more than Bosnia. What this means is that if Finland win their next game, they’re going to get qualified.
And winning their next game should not be a big problem for Finland, considering that they’re playing a home game against Liechtenstein. Still, the match is played at the same time when Bosnia and Herzegovina are playing Italy. That said, you can expect Bosnia to give their utmost to win that game and hope that Lady Luck will look at them.
If Finland fail to win the next two matches, Bosnia can get to the EUROS. In that case, they would need to win the remaining two games. Beating Liechtenstein in the final round would be easy, but beating Italy on Friday evening is guaranteed to be difficult.
Still, you can be sure that Bosnia will go for a win in this game from the very first moment. And considering that they’ve been playing very well at home, they do have the right to hope for a win. Especially because Italy don’t have too much to fight for.
That’s why Italy coach, Roberto Mancini, might decide to give some youngsters a chance to acquire valuable experience. He did call up his regulars to this duel, but he also brought a few inexperienced players with him, who could make their debut in the national team on Friday. We’re talking about Alex Meret, Andrea Cistana, Gaetano Castrovilli, and Riccardo Orsolini, all of whom still haven’t been capped for the Italian national team.
Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the other hand, are probably going to play with their best eleven from the very start. And those players definitely have what it takes to beat Italy. Of course, a completely opposite scenario can happen if they receive bad news from Finland. Learning that their EURO 2020 hope is gone could make them lose their motivation to win this game.
