National football team of Bosnia and Herzegovina closes their 2020 UEFA European Football Championship qualifying campaign with tonight’s match against Italy and Monday’s clash with Liechtenstein.
Robert Prosinecki’s men need a miracle to qualify directly for the UEFA Euro 2020, as they have to beat both Italy and Liechtenstein, and hope that Finland will not collect more than one point in their remaining two matches against Liechtenstein and Greece.
That is highly unlikely to happen, however, as Liechtenstein has managed to remain undefeated in only five of their last 30 away games, recording only two victories in the process - against Moldova (1-0) in qualifications for the European Championship five years ago, and against Qatar (2-1) in a friendly match back in December 2017.
However, Bosnia can still qualify for the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship through the UEFA Nations League play-offs.
UEFA has updated the list of teams that would be involved in the play-offs on the basis of the current European Qualifiers standings.
According to the current list, Bosnia and Herzegovina would play at home against Northern Ireland in the semi-finals, and against the winner of Wales-Slovakia tie in the finals of the play-off, the host of which will be drawn in advance on November 22.
The match against Italy will be played at the ‘Bilino Polje’ Stadium in Zenica at 20:45 hours.
