Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Armenia Prediction & Betting tips
Group J qualifying for the pan-European Football European Championship 2020 has a big favorite with the Squadra Azzurra from Italy. The Bosnian national football team has the best chances of winning second place, Greece and Finland will probably only have outsider chances, while Armenia and Liechtenstein do not expect a realistic outlook. Nations League Group winners Bosnia face Armenia at home on Matchday 1
Thanks to the success in the B Division – Bosnia prevailed against Austria – the team of head coach Robert Prosinecki in the worst case even the possibility of one of the four Nations League tickets to secure. But there is no thought to be wasted on it, but the concentration is the home game against Armenia. Of course, the hosts are the clear favorites. The game starts on Saturday evening at 19:45.
The Croatian Robert Prosinecki took over the Bosnian national team in early January 2018 and last year in a dozen internationals five wins, five draws and had to cope only with Mexico and Spain (each in test matches) a defeat. Striking is the fact that in Bosnia no peat festival can be expected. In ten of the twelve matches in 2018, the tip on the under 2.5 was the right decision. Overall, there were only two games in which both Bosnia and the respective opponent met. The Prosinecki-Elf puts a lot of value on the defensive, this is underpinned by only four goals in 2018. Offensively, the team knows that they have a forward with superstar Edin Dzeko, who can score at any time from half a chance. Should the Bosnia defensiveness once again keep a clean sheet and celebrate a “Zero Victory”, there are odds of 2.00 in the match between Bosnia and Armenia for this prediction.
Prosinecki will be without Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac on Saturday night and midfielder Elvis Saric for the qualifying match of the “Zmajevi” against Armenia. The duo is due to injuries not available, Kolasinac but could be ready for Tuesday for Greece game again. Creative spirit Miralem Pjanic was a bit weak this week, but gave the green light for Saturday. The central midfielder of Juventus is particularly important in view of its standard strength of extreme importance. The dormant ball could be against the defensively oriented Armenians on Saturday the “can opener”.
The Nations League should also give small teams a chance to qualify for a major event. After all, at least one of the teams from league D will be represented at the European Championships next year. However, Armenia did not take advantage of this opportunity last autumn. With three wins, a draw and two defeats, the team of head coach Armen Gyulbudaghyants took second place. For Armenia, the 0: 1 home defeat against football dwarf Gibraltar was particularly embarrassing.
In the number 101 squad of the FIFA World Ranking, nearly 50 percent are legionnaires and 50 percent are from home. For the legionnaires, of course, ex-Dortmund player Henrikh Mkhitaryan stands out. The 30-year-old Arsenal player is the thinker and driver in the game of Armenia. However, the captain is often on his own. While he can certainly be described as an “upscale international class”, the rest of the team is at most mediocre. A look at the current market values at Transfermarkt illustrates this. Striker Sargis Adamyan (25-year-old Jahn Regensburg striker) is the only player in addition to “Micky”, who owns a market value of over one million euros. The Germany legionary Adamyan has scored in 13 internationals but only one goal. However, he has scored 18 points (ten goals, eight assists) for Jahn Regensburg this season. Qualitatively, the big difference to Bosnia can not be denied. Normally, the Armenian national football team will occupy fifth place in this group in front of the Principality of Liechtenstein. Point wins against favorites would be a surprise.
