It has been a dismal Euro 2024 qualifying campaign for Liechtenstein so far and it looks like it will get a lot worse when Bosnia head to the Rheinpark Stadion, Vaduz on Friday.
Liechtenstein have lost all six Group J matches and they are unable to qualify for the finals next year despite having four games still to play.
It has not been much better for Bosnia, who have amassed just six points and who are seven points behind Slovakia in second, although The Dragons do have a play-off spot to fall back on.
Bosnia to win and Miralem Pjanic to score @ EVS
With just one goal scored and 19 conceded in qualifying, Liechtenstein are the closest thing to unbackable that you can get right now and another defeat is likely coming their way on Friday.
The Blue-Reds are on a 19-game losing streak and have not tasted success since a 2-1 victory over Luxembourg just over three years ago. It has been a desperate time for the minnows and they won’t be getting any change from Bosnia.
Yes, it hasn’t been a great time for Bosnia either, but they still have enough quality in their squad to pick up the three points and keep their hopes of a top-two finish alive.
Savo Milosevic’s side only have one win from their last five assignments, but that was a 2-1 against Liechtenstein and nothing has happened since that result to suggest they won’t overcome their opponents again.
To get some value into this bet, add in Miralem Pjanic to score anytime to create a #PickYourPunt that pays out at 1/1, if successful.
The former Juventus and Barcelona midfielder, who now plies his trade for Sharjah in the UAE Pro League, is the second highest scorer in Bosnia’s squad with 18 goals – only Edin Dzeko has more to his name.
Pjanic will have more freedom to come forward from midfield against an inferior opponent and it would be no surprise to see him find the back of the net.
Under 2.5 goals @ 6/4
Given Liechtenstein have conceded 19 goals from their six qualifiers it is easy to think this could turn out to be a rout for Bosnia, but that may not be the case.
For all of their woes, Liechtenstein have managed to compete for the large part in their own backyard and they have only let in more than two goals in one of their last six home fixtures.
Under 2.5 goals has landed in five of their last six at home and there is a feeling this same bet could land again against Bosnia, who have only scored five times from across their six qualifiers.
Liechtenstein are the huge 28/1 outsiders to pick up their first win in over three years, with the draw priced at 10/1 and Bosnia the firm 1/14 favourites to triumph.
Bosnia’s all-time record goalscorer Edin Dzeko is 4/9 to score anytime, while he is 12/5 to bag the first strike of the match and 9/4 to hit the last.
A repeat of Bosnia’s 2-1 victory over Liechtenstein at the start of September is available at 12/1.
