A 4-2 win against Iceland on Thursday secured second spot in Group J for Slovakia, who now face Bosnia in Zenica on Sunday evening (19:45), safe in the knowledge that they will be playing at the European Championship next year.

For Bosnia-Herzegovina, the game represents a chance to salvage some pride after a 4-1 hammering at the hands of Luxembourg last time out.

Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Slovakia Betting Tips:

  • Over 2.5 goals @ EVS
  • Slovakia to win @ 15/8

Team News

Dennis Hadzikadunic misses out for the home side through suspension, but there are no such issues for Slovakia, whose head coach Francesco Calzona must decide whether to rest key stars such as Milan Skriniar, Stanislav Lobotka and Juraj Kucka.

Match Odds

Bosnia-Herzegovina are favourites at 6/4 for this one, with a Slovakia win priced at 15/8. The draw can be backed at 11/5, and both teams to score is 8/11.

Over 2.5 goals @ EVS

The reverse fixture in Bratislava in March produced two goals and with qualification from the group already sewn up, I think there's room for at least one more goal in Zenica.

Both sides were involved in high-scoring games on Thursday - Bosnia-Herzegovina lost 4-1 in Luxembourg while Slovakia were 4-2 winners over Iceland - and the defences may lose out again on Sunday with little on the line for either.

This bet has won in five of Bosnia-Herzegovina's nine group games, and four of Slovakia's.

Slovakia to win @ 15/8

Qualification is already assured for the visitors, who could make changes for this one.

However, the odds still look generous for a Slovakia win given the issues surrounding Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Savo Milosevic's side have shipped nine goals across their last two games, and they can't call on the reliable talents of Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic, who were both left out of the squad for this month.

Slovakia can equal their best-ever Euro qualifying points tally of 22 with a win on Sunday, and I think they have enough in reserve to outscore Bosnia.
