Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Italy betting preview on the upcoming match shows an interesting situation in Group J. Its topper, Italian football team, has already qualified for the finals, so the question is whether their rival can outplay them on November 15 and fill the last slot.
The match against Italy will be one of the most defining for Bosnia and Herzegovina. If the team wins, its chances to qualify for Euro 2020 will increase significantly. The current standings in Group J show the following picture:
- Italy – 25 pt (qualified)
- Finland – 15 pt
- Armenia – 10 pt
- Bosnia and Herzegovina – 10 pt
- Greece – 8 pt
- Liechtenstein – 2 pt
So, Bosnians have to win two remaining matches to get a chance to join Italy at next year’s European championship. Obviously, this scenario is possible if only Finland and Armenia won’t get 3 points in any further game. For now, let’s evaluate the situation in the BiH-Italy pair.
Bet on UEFA Euro 2020:
Who’s the favorite by Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Italy betting preview?
Experts from online gambling sites in Bosnia have already made the earliest predictions on the possible winner. Following them, Italy is just a half step ahead with 2.22 odds on its victory on the 9th matchday. However, as its team had already qualified for Euro 2020 with a wide margin, there’s nothing holding them back from being relaxed during the next matches.
At the same time, Bosnia is predicted to win with a 3.30 odds, which is a comparatively huge possibility. As it was said, there’s no reason for Italy to try hard to defeat their rivals. This fact can play for Bosnian footballers if they decide to do their best to reach the group stage. A tie is also a possible option to bet on with its 3.70 odds at 1xBet Sportsbook. However, an equal score won’t help BiH on their way to Euro 2020, so the team is more likely to play hard on November 15.
What are Bosnian footballers’ chances to score?
Following Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Italy betting preview, the underdogs still have good chances to win the match. The most possible score that can bring them victory is 1:0 with 11.00 odds. This slim victory will be enough for BiH to reach the necessary 3 points and continue their fight for Euro 2020.
Online sportsbooks in Bosnia and Herzegovina, however, suggest also a less positive outcome of the match. One of the best predictions shows that BiH is likely to lose to Italy with a 1:2 score. This variant has the lowest odds to bet on – 8.00.
There is one more factor that can save the Bosnian team from a defeat and this is a penalty. According to the predictions, one or more pens will be awarded during the match for either BiH or Italy (2.70). Fans of Bosnians have to cross fingers for a positive outcome for their team.
