Bosnia and Hercegovina welcome the visitors Greece in the Euro Qualification – Round 2. The match will be held on Tuesday, March, 26th, at the Bilino Polje (Zenica).
Last World Cup qualification campaign, Bosnia and Hercegovina were about to qualify – they missed three points that they dropped in the clash with the frugal Cyprus then. The team were 2:0 ahead after the first half, but they contrived to lose. Thus, one of the most effective top European scorers Edin Dzeko had to miss the major tournament.
The homeside on the day are presently guided by Robert Prosinecki who is reigning since the beginning of 2018. The forty-eight-year-old Croatian specialist used to manage the Azerbaijan national team (2014-2017), and now he signed a contract by the end of Euro 2020 qualification. Though the side did not qualify for the Russian World Cup, the last year was fine for them overall. They competed in the Nations League last autumn. In the League B, they had to face Austria and Northern Ireland who did not provide for adequate competition. Therefore, Bosnia and Hercegovina may advance to playoffs not only through qualifiers, but may try to do so from the Nations League, if they don’t take the first or the second place in the group. The team pleased their fans by the defensive performance, having allowed a sole goal in four clashes. In the next Nations League, they will compete with the strongest European clubs, but presently they focus on the Euro qualification – though the first tier is hardly possible there, the second one might be fought for by Bosnia, Greece, and Finland. As for Armenia and Lichtenstein, against these sides, the hosts need to attain the maximum number of points.

Yet in 2004, the visiting Greece became European champions, whereas now they undergo tough times. Needless to say, a few years back, they lost twice to the Faroe Islands. In the autumn Nations League, the Greeks competed in the League C wherein they faced Finland, Hungary, and Estonia. With such humble opponents, they managed to take the third place only though, having registered three wins and three defeats. Notably, the Greek Football Federation were not fine with this result, so, the fifty-three-year-old German specialist Michael Skibbe was dismissed from his managerial post. Greece are currently guided by Angelos Anastasiadis. For outings against Lichtenstein in Vaduz and Bosnia and Hercegovina in Zenica, he called a few new players, but all the leaders are still there: the Galatasaray forward Konstantinos Mitroglou, the Benfica midfielder Andreas Samaris, and the Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos (captain).
The Bilino Polje hosts a crucial encounter in which none of the side will be ready to concede, as a defeat may hurt their qualification prospects. The Greek team boast qualified players, but their game is badly organized, so, they won’t attain a point in their Tuesday trip to Zenica.
Prediction for the match: Bosnia and Hercegovina to win home.
