TV: Sky Sports; ESPN
A frustrating night for Bosna Herzegovina in Wales seen them come away with just a point in a game that they dominated possession but just could not find the back of the net. Eden Dzeko and Ibisevich cut frustrated figures on Friday night both ended up in the referees book. Bosnia will have to get some points off Belgium in this group if they are to top the group and one would think that this game at home will be there best opportunity. The pressure will be on the home side and they face a star studded Belgium but I think at home Bosnia can draw some inspiration from a very passionate home crowd.
While Belgium caused some stir in the World Cup they probably underperformed in the Quarter Final given the talent within their squad. Dzeko the Bosnian captain will face a tough night against his Manchester City teammate and Belgium captain Vincent Kompany who is among the best center halves in the world. With Chelsea's Eden Hazard pulling the strings in the midfield and Everton's Lukaku up front their is some serious talent here. Alex Witsel and Kevin De Bruynne will also look to continue their great form in midfield, De Bruynne netted two on Friday night.

While Belgium do look the better side here on paper Bosnia are going to be far from a pushover in this one. In fact this may be another war of attrition and I think that taking the draw here may pay dividends for punters. Bosnia lost to Cyprus in the first round of games and that was a huge shock especially as Bosnia had not lost a home qualifier for 4 years. I think Bosnia must get something from this game if they have any hopes of qualifying and although Belgium have a really talented squad I think they may just accept a point in Bosnia as a good result.
