Bosnia and Herzegovina take on the visitors Montenegro in the round 5 match of UEFA Nations League (League B). The match will be played on Friday, September 23rd at Bilino Polje (Zenica).
Bosnia national team in its entire history, despite its personnel potential, has only played once at the World Cup - and unsuccessfully. Very often, the "golden lilies" were inferior in the playoffs. And in the last cycle, this didn’t work either, in the confrontation with Ukraine and Finland in 2021, Dzeko and the company showed themselves to be mediocre. Even earlier, they lost their "registration" in Division A of the League of Nations. And there is, it seems, a plan to win back positions at least here. In the summer, Ivaylo Petev's wards were able to alternate away draws with home victories. As a result, they took revenge in a certain sense, gaining 4 points with Finland, won at the expense of Prevljak's only goal against Romania and scored 1-1 on the Montenegrin field. As a result, with 8 points, it turns out to be the leader in the quartet. Moreover, the victory now guarantees the final 1st place.

Montenegro team has at its disposal a lot of players with experience playing in the top European championships - Savic, Marusic, Khaksabanovic, Mugosha, Dzhurdzhevich. And, in the first part, Jovetić - and it was Stefan who "made the difference" for years. But he will be 33 this fall, and it’s not in vain that the striker now, who at the peak of his career was not shining with health, is playing for the now modest Hertha. In general, the "brave falcons" have never shown themselves anywhere. Is it possible to note their success just in the Nations League, where in the last cycle they managed to win the group. That's just it was at the level of division C. At a higher level, Miodrag Radulovic's wards, obviously, are already glad that they can gain a foothold. With Romania, they were able to give both matches at all, 2-0 at home and 3-0 away. Yes, and with Bosnia were home 1-1, and only with Finland on the road did not work out, they were able to win with a score, 2-0. By the way, if they win now, it will be possible to rise to the 1st place.
Before this League of Nations, there were friendly matches in 2018 and 2021. Then they both times ended in goalless draws. Bookmakers believe that in the head-to-head confrontation between the leaders, it will be won the Bosnian national team, which plays at home. It is unlikely that the Montenegrin team will be able to resist - we recommend betting that Dzeko and the company will finally be able to win this fight.
Prediction for the match: Bosnia & Herzegovina to win.
