The battle to get in EURO 2020 continues with the match between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland. The game will take place on 26 March at Bosnia and Herzegovina’s city of Zenica (65 km away from the capital Sarajevo). The teams played two games in a Nations League' Group, where Bosnians won both matches and performed better. This is probably one of the reasons why the bookmakers point out the host as a favourite to win the game. However, football history has proven us more than once that nothing is known until the referee's final whistle, and bookmakers’ favourite can lose the game.

Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia performed very poorly at its group on the qualifications for EURO 2020. Proven players such as Dzeko, Pjanic, and Besic, played really bad and left their nation far away from the European Championship. Luckily, the team was drawn to play at the playoffs and in March, Bosnians will have one more chance to show their best abilities. Recently, the coach of the team Robert Prosinecki has been sacked because of the weak performance on the qualifications, and now the team is led by Dusan Bajevic. Although the squad won four games, made one draw, and lost five games, the bookmakers give betting odds around 1.75 for the market Bosnia to win.
Michael O’Neill’s team will travel to Bosnia with one major goal - to turn Northern Ireland team’s chances at the playoffs and get the country to participate on EURO 2020. It is a well-known fact that when you are underestimated, you are in a better position because no one expects something impressing from you. However, we have already mentioned in our EURO 2020 betting guide that there is one crucial thing - at the playoffs for the tournament everyone will play as never before. Northern Ireland performed modestly in its qualification group and finished fourth (four win, one draw, three losses). Despite that fact, the team possesses a good team spirit, and is ready to give its best against Bosnia.
The teams met each other two times, and Bosnia won both of the games.
