Over 2.5 goals at Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Italy 4/5 for Friday’s EURO 2020 qualifier

Competition: EURO 2020 qualifying

Market: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365

Continuing to shine during qualifying, a high-flying Italy will make the trip Bosnia’s Stadion Bilino Polje on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Bosnia may have managed to pick up a 2-1 win over Greece last month, they still remain in an uphill battle to secure a shock spot at Euro 2020. Hunting down a five-point deficit with just two Group J matches left, Head Coach Robert Prosinečki will take some solace from his side’s form on home soil. Yet to taste defeat at the Stadion Bilino Polje since way back in October 2017, the hosts have landed back-to-back victories in front of their own supporters and have found the net nine times in those two victories. It should also be noted that each of their previous four matches on home soil have seen over 2.5 strikes at full-time.

As for the visitors, picking up a 5-0 win over Liechtenstein last month, Italy have continued on what has been quite the resurge. Winning each of their eight Group J appearances and continuing to shine since appointing former Man City boss Roberto Mancini, the former world champions have gained a fearsome reputation for their performances in the final third. Led by Lazio striker Ciro Immobile who already has 14 goals in his 12 matches this season, the Blues are averaging over three strikes per game during qualifying and Friday’s trip to Zenica should prove to be another lively encounter.
