Italy: Want to go back to the top ( Recent Form: D W W W W )
Under the new national coach Roberto Mancini, Italy wants to become the world power it once was. It is still too early to draw conclusions, but Mancini is well on the way. Under his leadership the Azzurri managed to avert degradation from the Nations League, and in Group J of the European Championship qualification they were still without a point loss after three matches. Last Saturday, Greece was convincingly put aside for its own public with 0-3. Italy never ran into trouble in Athens, because thanks to goals from Nicolo Barella, Lorenzo Insigne and Leonardo Bonucci, the final score was already at rest on the scoreboard. The only reproach that you could make the Italians is that they took it a bit easier after the tea, although that is understandable with such an intermediate score and the game against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Italy is full of self-confidence, and with various new faces in the selection is fast becoming a ticket for next year's European Championships.
Bosnia-Herzegovina: Dreams of first ever European participation ( Recent Form: D L W D L )
Bosnia-Herzegovina has been dreaming of its first European Championship participation since the break-up of Yugoslavia, but that dream has been further away than ever since last Saturday. Visiting Finland, the men of coach Robert Prosinecki went 2-0 for the ax, which means that the country now has to chase one of the two starting certificates for direct European Championship qualification. Despite the defeat against Finland, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a favorite to directly qualify for the European Championship together with Italy. To keep it that way, the country will have to stand on Italian soil. So there is a lot of pressure on Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic, the two star players at De Draken. The country is damaged in the back, because both Sead Kolasinac and Asmir Begovic are not involved.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Bosnia's attacking line is ineffective, on the contrary, the defense of the home team is very solid, moreover, remember that the Italian team's specialty is defense. With the above statistics, it is predicted that this match will have few goals scored.
