Bosnia & Herzegovina – Luxembourg Predictions and Preview
- Bosnia and Herzegovina have thus far failed to live up to their tag as the ones to challenge front-runners Portugal and Slovakia for a top-two spot in Group J, after losing 3-0 and 2-0 respectively to those two nations in their most recent UEFA European Championship qualification (ECQ) matches. Much more was expected of the Bosnians, particularly after their lead-in form, where losing only once in the eight prior matches (W5, D2) helped them gain promotion to League A of the UEFA Nations League.
- All five of those wins came at home accompanied by four clean sheets and another all-round performance here will be most welcome if the Dragons are to revive their dwindling hopes of qualifying for their first ever European Championship as an independent state. A 1-0 win over incoming opponents Luxembourg kick-started that fine home run, which also continued their 100% H2H record that has seen them concede just one goal across seven encounters.
- Upsetting that trend will be Luxembourg’s number one priority, and doing so will ensure they at least maintain the one-point lead they currently hold over their hosts in the standings. Qualifying for a first ever major international tournament still seems unrealistic for FIFA’s 91st-ranked nation, but they’ve definitely afforded themselves the right to dream after their 2-0 win over fellow minnows Liechtenstein last time out.
- That result means the Red Lions have now avoided defeat in two of their first three matches (W1, D1) en route to Euro 2024, which already equals their best output from any ECQ campaign this century. Hitting the road might serve as a reality check for Luc Holtz’s men, as Luxembourg have failed to win any of their last 16 away ECQ matches (D2, L14).
- Players to watch: Luxembourg’s Gerson Rodrigues came off the bench to provide a goal and assist against Liechtenstein, meaning six of his last eight international goals have come after half-time. Bosnia and Herzegovina will be hoping Miralem Pjanić can have a similar effect, since his 17 international goals have resulted in 16 unbeaten games for his country (W13, D3).
- Hot stat: Only three of Bosnia’s last 16 home matches have seen both teams score.
