The quest to make it to Euro 2024 continues as Bosnia-Herzegovina host Liechtenstein in Group J.
Still led by captain Edin Dzeko at the age of 37, Bosnia-Herzegovina are looking for the next generation of talent to drag them forward. In midfield, they still have Mirolem Pjanic while at the back Saed Kolasinic and Sheffield United’s Anel Ahmedhodzic are key members of the backline.
Liechtenstein don’t have the same wealth of quality at their disposal. Almost all of their squad plays in their homeland and they have found life tough during qualifying so far.
Bosnia-Herzegovina to win both halves at 4/9
Despite Bosnia-Herzegovina’s poor form, which has seen them lose their last three matches without scoring, this should be a one-sided affair. Bosnia lost 2-0 to Luxembourg last time out in a shock defeat, but Liechtenstein are a level below that and have struggled to find any sort of form this year.
They are the group’s whipping boys, having been battered 7-0 by Iceland and failed to score in their other two matches. However, they also only lost 2-0 to Luxembourg. Looking at the squads on paper however, this should be a relatively straightforward win. Dzeko, Pjanic and Ahmedhodzic are still elite players and between them they should be able to get Bosnia back on track.
Bosnia-Herzegovina 3-0 Liechtenstein
Unfortunately, there isn’t much value to be found anywhere in the market given the home side are 1/33 to walk away victorious. However, if we look at the correct score market, we could nail some value.
Liechtenstein are not going to score, that is plainly obvious. They are nine games without a goal, and that only came against Andorra. Bosnia-Herzegovina are going to be peppering the goal, dominating possession and creating chances. Putting them down to score three goals, even given their goal-shy nature in recent performances feels sensible, without being ambitious.
