Nations League betting preview
Relegated to Nations League Group B after a difficult spell in the top flight, Bosnia have got off to a good start in their battle to return to the big league and can improve their prospects by winning in Montenegro on Saturday night.
Ivaylo Petev’s men have four points thanks to a 1-1 draw in Finland and a 1-0 win over Romania.
And they were in better form before their match in Podgorica than the hosts, who won’t be anywhere near full strength.
Montenegro defeated Romania 2-0 and lost to Finland by the same result. They did so without Atletico defender Stefan Savic and Levante’s Nicola Vukcevic – both absent again – while skipper Stevan Jovetic takes a hit and is yet to play in either game.
Having won just three of their last 14, they can’t afford to be without many of their star names.
In contrast, Bosnia looks strong. You had a thoroughly disappointing World Cup qualification despite draws against France and Ukraine, but you trained well.
They were also able to take Sead Kolasinac, Miralem Pjanic and Mo Besic off the bench as a second-half substitute against Romania, so everyone should be fresh from the start.
Petev also has a welcome headache in attack as Edin Dzeko is pressured by Smail Prevljak, who came on as a substitute and scored both goals for Bosnia after scoring 16 goals for Eupen in Belgium’s top flight.
Group C1 appears to have turned into a neck-and-neck race between Turkey and Luxembourg and the Turks are expected to prevail. At the other end of the period, the Faroe Islands and Lithuania are preparing for a pointless and goalless clash in Torshavn.
The Faroe Islands have home field advantage, although not much else speaks for them, and while these teams look about as bad as the others, there is a lot to be said for siding with Lithuania at a decent price.
The hosts need a small pool of good players and the best of them – midfielder Brandur Hendrikssen Olsen – is injured. So did goal scorer Peter Knudsen, while top scorer Joan Simun Edmundsson went into these games with a cloud of injuries and only played five minutes. Two of their regulars – right-back Rene Joensen and midfielder Solvi Vatnhamar – are suspended.
