Italy vs Bosnia and Herzegovina – UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier match preview, predicted line-ups

Italy vs Bosnia and Herzegovina
Italy will play Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday in Euro 2020 qualifiers

Italy will take on Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers as both teams eye a win. The Gli Azzurri go into this game as the favourites.

Kick-off : 8:45 PM (Local)

Venue : Bilino Polje, Zenica

Italy have been extremely solid in their display in this European qualifiers for next year’s Euro’s. They would like to continue that.

Italy at present are first in their group after 8 games with full 24 points. Their goal difference too is very healthy of +22.

In Bosnia and Herzegovina and that is also away they have got some tough opponents who will test them. Italy will need to pass the test with flying colours.

Italy are a good defending side historically and if they can maintain that then points will come. Good luck to them.

On the other hand, Bosnia and Herzegovina have had a poor qualifying campaign for next year’s Euro’s and they are in need of points.

The Dragons are currently 4th in the group after eight games with just 10 points. The goal difference is +3.

Against Italy comes an opportunity for exposure. More than it they will be hoping for success against the four time world champions.

For that they need to create a strategy like being good defensively and being good in the final third or hit Italy on counters. Practice makes perfect.

Team news and possible line-ups

Ibrahim Cehic will keep for Bosnia and Herzegovina against Italy.

As for Gli Azzurri, Salvatore Sirigu will keep for them. While Gianluca Mancini is available and will likely play.

Bosnia and Herzegovina XI : Sehic, Todorovic, Kovacevic, Bicakcic, Kolasinac, Cimirot, Pjanic, Saric, Hajrovic, Dzeko, Gojak.

Italy XI : Sirigu, Florenzi, Mancini, Bonucci, Biraghi, Barella, Jorginho, Zaniolo, Chiesa, Belotti, Insigne.


I expect this to be a close game and it might end 1-1 in the end.
