Bosnia vs Ukraine

Bilino Polje in Zenica will be packed when Bosnia & Herzegovina and Ukraine lock horns in the EURO playoffs semis. The Dragons failed to impress in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, but they set up a meeting with Ukraine thanks to their good results in the Nations League. Renato Gojkovic serves a one-game ban following his sending-off in a 2-1 loss to Slovakia, while Basel man Adiran Leon Barisic has been ruled out with injury. Fenerbahce striker Edin Dzeko is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.

The Ukrainians, on the other hand, were producing fine performances in their EURO qualifying group against Italy and England, which is the main reason why bookies see them as favourites to win Thursday’s clash. Ukraine are more of a team than Bosnia and with the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Artem Dovbyk in the starting XI, we predict that Sergiy Rebrov’s men are going to defeated Bosnia in the semis.

Recent head to heads

The nations met in the last World Cup qualifiers and Ukraine won 2-0 away, but Bosnia held them to a 1-1 draw in Ukraine’s home game.

Players to watch

Edin Dzeko is still going strong at the age of 38 and the former Manchester City hitman has an impressive 65 international goals in 133 caps. The Fenerbahnce ace is 3/1 to score anytime with Maxjili.

Mykhailo Mudryk has not quite repaid the £62 million Chelsea paid for him so far, but he clearly has plenty of talent. He’s only scored once for his country and will be desperate to increase that tally at 3/1 with Maxjili too.

  • Ukraine was unbeaten in both the h2h clashes against Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Ukraine Prediction

Bosnia & Herzegovina doesn’t seem to have a decent form, even at home. They lost three of the past four home outings and the match they won in that stretch was against Liechtenstein, who have ended at the bottom of the Group J standings, losing all the 10 fixtures.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is having a strong away form at present. They won three of the past four matches and the one they lost in the stretch was against Italy. Ukraine allowed goals in five of the last six away matches.

But that doesn’t change our mind from backing Ukraine to win as the main pick here. The defensive line of Ukraine on the road suggests both teams scoring display, which we like to suggest as the second tip here. Also, Ukraine has scored at least 2 goals in four of the past five and we have seen them scoring 3 in three of them. Knowing that Bosnia & Herzegovina allowed 10 goals in the past four home matches, we like to suggest a 3-1 correct score tip in favor of Ukraine.
