Robert Prosinecki’s men were lively in the attack throughout the game, with Edin Visca and Haris Duljevic both denied by the fingertips of Austrian goalkeeper Heinz Lindner. Meanwhile, Bosnia’s star striker Edin Dzeko dragged an effort wide, and Toni Sunjic headed over.
West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic and Julian Baumgartlinger had chances for Austria, who will end their maiden Nations League campaign at the second place of Group B3, regardless of the outcome of Sunday’s match against Northern Ireland.
The match on Thursday evening was Robert Prosinecki’s 11th game in charge; so far, he has five victories, five draws and only one defeat - against Mexico in a friendly match in San Antonio on February 1.
Prosinecki has now tied Safet Susic’s record for most consecutive games without defeat, but he will need something special to improve it - as Bosnia’s next game is a friendly against Spain in Las Palmas on Sunday evening.
