Bosnia & Herzegovina’s fate lies in their own hands

Despite registering just one win in six matches, Bosnia & Herzegovina still have a chance to finish second in group D. The Dragons have two matches at home against Finland and Ukraine. Hence, if they win both or Finland loses to France in their final match they will qualify for the next round. However, Bosnia & Herzegovina have not won two games in a row since September 2018.

To point out, what’s kept them in contention in this qualification is the four draws that allowed them to reach a tally of seven points. Nonetheless, if they didn’t have some contradicting results they would be in a better place. For example, the Dragons drew in France with Les Bleus. But in their next game, they lost two points to Kazakhstan in the dying minutes. Therefore, it is crucial for Ivalo Petev’s team to take the lead in the match and keep it.

Finland looking for a win to keep their hopes alive

With just two points separating the second from fourth in group D, Finland find themselves in the middle of a three-way battle. To illustrate, with eight points The Eagle-Owls are currently third. And with two matches to play like their opponents, they have the chance to finish second if they win both. In fact, mathematically they could even finish first if France lose both their games.

In any case, Finland face one of the most important games in their attempt to qualify for the first-ever World Cup final. Notably, coach Markku Kanerva’s team came a long way from being a minnow in Europe to challenging for top places. Also, they had their first appearance in a major tournament by playing in Euro 2020 this year. Thus Finland have the ability to be a real threat in this game.
