Bosnia & Herzegovina is welcoming Netherlands to Bilino Polje in round 3 in the UEFA Nations League.
Bosnia hasn’t won any of their last 3 games, and they lost a crucial game in the Euro Cup qualifications playoffs a few days ago. Bosnia was playing against Northern Ireland in that match, and they were solid with 59% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. Bosnia got ahead in the 13th minute of the game, but they conceded a goal in the 53rd minute, and the regular time ended in a 1-1 draw. There weren’t any goals in the overtime, and the game went to the penalty shootout. Northern Ireland was the better team in the shootout, and they have won this game, and with that, Bosnia got knocked out of the competition. It’s too bad for Bosnia because they have a good team, and they have deserved to be in the Euro Cup, but better luck next time. Dzeko and Hajradinovic have each scored 1 goal for Bosnia in the Nations League, while Sunjic added 1 assist. Bosnia is in the last place in the group in the Nations League. Another year, another competition without Bosnia, but the problem for Bosnia goes deeper than the quality of their team.
Netherlands is a good team, but it looks like they still haven’t adopted the new coach’s ideas. Netherlands has scored only 1 goal in their last 3 games while conceding 2 goals. In their last match against Mexico at home, Netherlands has had 48% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, and 2 corner kicks, but once again, Netherlands has been struggling in the attacking end. In the 60th minute, Netherlands has conceded a goal, and they weren’t able to recover from that. Netherlands has lost this match 0-1. In the Nations League, Netherlands is in second place in their group with 3 points. Bergwijn is the only goalscorer for Netherlands so far, while Hateboer has 1 assist. By losing their head coach Koeman to Barcelona, Netherlands has lost that offensive flare they had, and it’s going to be a while before they get it back, hopefully in time for the Euro Cup next year. Netherlands has some of the best players in the world on their roster, and I’m sure this is only a minor setback.
Bosnia and Netherlands have never played against each other in the past. Netherlands hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games on the road, while Bosnia is on a 3-game losing streak at home. Bosnia is shaken up after they lost a few days ago, and I’m not sure they can move forward so fast. I will stick with Netherlands here.
