Bosnia and Herzegovina - Italy
Tonight, from 20:45, within the last 6th round of Group 1 of the UEFA A League of Nations, the national teams of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy will compete in front of the empty stands of the Grbavica stadium in Sarajevo.
The team of Bosnia and Herzegovina enters this match as the last placed team in the group without any chances to survive in the A league and in the next cycle it moves to the B league, in the course of the competition so far they have won 2 points in 5 games. On the other hand, the Italian team is in first place with only one point more than second-placed Netherlands and 2 points more than third-placed Poland, and for them this match will have a competitive character because victory guarantees them first place in the group and placement in the playoffs.
The national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina is in a bad form, and today marks exactly one year since they did not record a victory, the last time they achieved a victory against a certain Liechtenstein exactly a year ago. An aggravating circumstance for them in this match will certainly be the absence of the best player Edin Dzeko, I would say an irreparable loss as far as the attack is concerned. On the other hand, Italy is in great form and they do not know about the defeat over 2 years, the last time they left the field with their heads bowed was on September 10, 2018, when they were defeated by Portugal with 1:0.
All in all, I think the quality is on the side of the visiting team, the imperative of victory as well, and I expect them to record a triumph tonight in this match.
