Tip Bosnia & Herzegovina - Finland
Both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Finland are already assured of a play-off place as they bid to make the Euro 2020 finals. Finishing in the top two and avoiding that is their aim though. Bosnia-Herzegovina are fourth in the group with seven points from their six games. That puts them five points behind second-placed Finland so a win here is vital for them. Anything less would make it even more likely they will have to go into the play-offs especially as they still have to play group leaders Italy. Bosnia-Herzegovina are a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde side. They have earned all of their points in this group at home and lost all three away games, including a 2-0 defeat in Finland. Only one of their last 17 home games have been lost and that was to Belgium in 2017.
Finland are in second place and three points clear of Armenia in third. They have never qualified for the finals of a major football tournament and at least a draw in Bosnia will strengthen their qualifying hopes, especially if they can then beat Armenia at home on Tuesday. Finland have won four of their six qualifiers, the other two games being home and away defeats by Italy. Away form has seen them win in Armenia and Liechtenstein. They will be hoping for more goals from Teemu Pukki, though he hasn't been scoring too many in recent games for Norwich City. A double chance bet on Bosnia and Herzegovina to win or draw this game is the sugggested bet.
Key points Bosnia & Herzegovina - Finland
Bosnia and Herzegovina have one loss in their last 17 home games.

Conclusion Bosnia & Herzegovina - Finland
Finland go into this game knowing a win would take them a giant step towards automatically qualifying for next year's European Championship finals. They already have a play-of position secured as do their opponents. This isn't an easy place to go and get a win though. The tip is for Bosnia-Herzegovina to get a win or draw from this fixture.
