Finland vs Bosnia And Herzegovina Predictions

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in 12 of Finland’s 14 matches played in the last year.
  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in 10 of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s 12 matches played in the past 12 months.
  • Edin Dzeko has been on a barren run at club level, scoring only once in his last 14 appearances for Inter Milan.

Goals should be short on supply in Helsinki

Two sides that know all there is to know about each other face off in Nations League B Group C on Saturday with a tight tussle expected between Finland and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Group rivals in their most recent World Cup qualifying and European Championship qualifying campaigns, familiarity between the two squads could lead to a stale encounter in Helsinki.

Scoring goals have been a problem for both sides of late, more so for Bosnia-Herzegovina who have found the back of their opponents’ net only once in their last four internationals. Edin Dzeko’s struggles at club level are unlikely to help their cause on Saturday as the skipper comes into the clash with only one goal in his last 14 Inter appearances.

He registered his nation’s solitary strike in their 1-0 friendly win over Luxembourg last time out, but a glance at the Dragons’ xG numbers of late reveals them to be a team that lack a killer touch in front of goal.

Finland doused Dragons’ fire last time they met

Finland struggled to make any impact in their World Cup qualifying section, where they were more reliable goalscorers on the road. But Markku Kanerva’s men did put three past this opponent when they overcame an early red card to win 3-1 in Zenica last November, so Bosnia-Herzegovina will surely respect their hosts.

It leads us to conclude that taking the ‘unders’ option could be a profitable move here with the stats of both nations since last year suggesting no more than two goals will be scored. Ivaylo Petev’s charges have been in a rut since that November defeat and might need some luck to get a goal, but Finland are rebuilding after some experienced defenders called time on their careers so we are encouraged to take a 1-1 correct score forecast.
