Euro 2016 Qualification action on Saturday evening comes from the Bilino Polje Stadium with the whole game Live on Sky Sports 2 High Definition, with a scheduled 19:45pm (BST)Kick Off Time.

Euro 2016 Qualification – Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Wales Betting Preview

Bosnia currently sit in 4th position, just two points a drift of the 3rd place play-off spot which is currently occupied by Israel so they still have a chance of overtaking them but they will need Israel to drop points to either Cyprus or Belgium.

Bosnia’s main goal threat this campaign has been Edin Dzeko who has netted seven times which means he is tied-3rd top goalscorer in the qualification stage. It will be a huge miss if he cannot recover in time for this match and could well determine the game because without him, Bosnia will struggle to break down the strong defensive back-line of Wales.

Wales have already guaranteed qualification to the finals but they will want to top their group, they currently sit in 1st place just one point above Belgium who are facing Andorra on Saturday. Wales will face Andorra at home for the final game of the qualifiers which should be a certain win so if they can take all three points here, they will be set to remain in 1st place of Group B.

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Wales Head to Head Statistics

10/10/14 EUR Wales vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 0 : 0
15/08/12 FRI Wales vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 0 : 2
12/02/03 FRI Wales vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 2 : 2

These two sides have met just three times throughout their combined history with Bosnia coming out the better as they remain unbeaten with one win and two draws.

All three meetings have taken place in Wales meaning that there are no head to head records to use for games that are hosted by Bosnia.

Although there has been just three games between these teams, I think we can deduce that the head to head statistics alone will suggest that Bosnia have the better chance of victory in this game as they have been the better team in three away games and teams usually perform better with the home advantage.

Bosnia & Herzegovina Recent Form

30/09/15 EUR Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Andorra 3 : 0
26/09/15 EUR Belgium vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 3 : 1
22/06/15 EUR Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Israel 3 : 1
18/03/15 FRI Austria vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 1 : 1
14/03/15 EUR Andorra vs Bosnia & Herzegovina 0 : 3

Bosnia are in decent form going into this game as they have won three, drew one and lost one of their last five matches. Their draw came against Austria in a friendly and their loss came against a strong Belgium side away from home which are both understandable results.

Wales Recent Form

06/09/15 EUR Wales vs Israel 0 : 0
03/09/15 EUR Cyprus vs Wales 0 : 1
12/06/15 EUR Wales vs Belgium 1 : 0
28/03/15 EUR Israel vs Wales 0 : 3
16/11/14 EUR Belgium vs Wales 0 : 0

Wales are in terrific form at the moment after remaining unbeaten in their last five including two games against both Belgium and Israel who are 2nd and 3rd respectively. They have kept a clean sheet in all of those five games which has been a base for their success and has seen them make their way to the top of their group heading into the last two matches.

Bosnia & Herzegovina Team News:

Bosnia have a major concern heading into this fixture as their top goalscorer Edin Dzeko has remained in Roma over the last couple of days to give them the best chance of being fit. They will also be without midfielder Muhamed Besic as he picked up a red card in the win over Andorra.

Wales Team News:

Wales face just one injury problem heading into this fixture as David Cotterill was forced to pull out of the squad after he suffered an injury which has seen Wes Burns earn his first call-up to the senior squad.

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Wales Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the three matches that have taken place between these two sides, there has been an average goals per game statistic of exactly 2.

That alone would suggest that we should see around two goals in this match and Bosnia’s recent matches would tend to towards there being more than two goals whilst Wales’s last five games have averaged just a goal a game.

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Wales Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I am expecting a very close game on Saturday as Wales will want to continue their unbeaten streak and their defence has been very solid in recent games whilst they have lacked an attacking edge scoring just two goals in their last three matches. Bosnia have been scoring frequently in their last few matches but with Dzeko looking like he may only be able to play a half and against a Welsh defence that has conceded just once in seven matches, I am not expecting them to get more than a goal in this game.

I am expecting Wales to come out of this game with at least a point as they have managed to do so against arguably harder opposition in Belgium as well as the fact that Bosnia have won just three of their last eight games with two of those wins coming against Andorra.
