Bosnia vs Belgium – 2018 World Cup Qualification: Bosnia is still on the fight for 2nd place…
Which ensures access to the play-off, but they have a very tough test here,
because Belgium is clearly the strongest team in this group and, despite already being qualified, the Bosnians know that they won’t ease up.
Bosnia could have already secured the 2nd place when, 2 rounds ago, after leading 0-2 in Cyprus, they ended up losing 3-2 against them.
That’s ridiculous especially considering they were favourites to win that encounter. After that, they won 4-0 in Gibraltar.
Any result other than the win on this match and Bosnia will depend on Greece, who can perfectly win their last 2 matches and snatch the 2nd place from them.
Belgium travels to Bosnia relaxed, already with their 1st place in the group secured and with an amazing record: 7 wins and 1 draw in 8 matches.
Surely they will not want to lose in Bosnia in order to finish this qualification stage without a single loss.
They have a lot of quality, with players like Hazard, Lukaku, Witsel, Kevin de Bruyne, FellainI and some others, who make this National team a very strong one.
Belgium is coming off a 9-0 win over Gibraltar on a match where they even played with just 10-men since the 40th minute.
After that, they went to Greece and won 2-1 on a match where they didn’t falter. They are by far the best team in this group and they have already proven it.
Bosnia vs Belgium – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On this match, which will be decisive for the hosts, I clearly expect an open match with both teams looking to score.
Belgium has a lot of quality on their offense, with a lot of engagement plays and they find it extremely easy to reach their opponents’ box in order to score.
On the other hand, Bosnia, at home, are usually very strong as well. They attack very well and have in Dzeko their main reference and goal scorer.
The draw might not be good enough for Bosnia, who plays before Greece,
so I believe that they will play to win. On an open and emotional match, my bet will be on goals, and on this case, I will go with Over 2.5 Goals here.
