Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Italy

After several questionable years for Italy’s national squad, they found the best way of football and play very confidently. During this Euro 2020 qualification, they won all games, scored 25 and conceded only 3 goals. This is the strongest result so far in the Euro 2020 qualification. Looks like Roberto Mancini turned the squad into the right way and they have a very interesting future in nearest competitions. Of course, in Group J there were no strong opponents for Italy, which were able to confront well, so the full potential of team we will see in the main draw of Euro 2020.

Bosnia & Herzegovina after 8 matches collected only 10 points and stands at 4th place with almost no chances to be among 2 qualifiers. However, we saw previously the same situations, where a miracle happened and teams from the bottoms showed unstoppable football in the last rounds. Squad with such players like Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko can’t be underestimated. So playing against rotated Italy’s national squad can give them needed results.

Key players

Mancini called several debut players to the national squad. This time team will be rotated to watch and follow for the younger and less known players. For guests, this match is not important anymore, as they already qualified for the Euro 2020. However, players will obviously try to win and fight as strong as it is possible. We can find lots of great and talented players in Italy’s squad. However, this time Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko are the most important persons of the game. They play in Italy, so perfectly knows how their opponents are prepared. We see them leading the Bosnia & Herzegovina squad on the 15th of November.
