          Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Liechtenstein Preview, Tips & Stats

          Bosnia and Herzegovina host Liechtenstein at the Bilino Polje on Friday in their fifth match of the UEFA Euro Qualifiers. Both sides are in desperate need of a win if they want to get anywhere near challenging for Qualification.
          Bosnia and Herzegovina sit fourth in Group J after four games. With just one win and three losses they find themselves four points behind third place Luxembourg and seven points adrift of the last qualification spot.

          The first game of the group stage was a big win for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Rade Krunic scored twice along with Amar Dedic to give Bosnia and Herzegovina an impressive 3 - 0 win to start their qualifying campaign. Next was a visit to Slovakia, where the outcome was vastly different. Robert Mak and Lukas Haraslin both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Slovakia in a game where Bosnia and Herzegovina had more of the ball. The next away day was as miserable as the last, this time travelling to Portugal. Bernardo Silva scored with Bruno Fernandes picking up a brace to give Portugal the 3 - 0 win.

          Bosnia and Herzegovina’s last time out was against Luxembourg. In a game that they had 67% of the possession, Yvandro Borges Sanches and Danel Sinani both scored to give Luxembourg the 2 - 0 win and all three points.

          Liechtenstein currently occupies the undesirable bottom spot in Group J. In four games, Liechtenstein have zero wins and four losses leaving them on zero points. Not only are Liechtenstein three points away from the closest competitors, but ten points away from Qualification and also have the worst goal difference having failed to score but conceding 14 goals.

          Portugal were the first opponents for Liechtenstein in their qualifying campaign. Joao Cancelo gave Portugal the lead going into halftime, but it was the second half that saw Liechtenstein taken apart. Silva scored early in the second half and Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals, one being a penalty, to give Portugal the 4 - 0 win. Next was a visit from Iceland which saw Lichtenstein’s goal difference take an even bigger hit. Davio Olafsson, Hakon Haraldsson, Andri Guojohsen and Mikael Ellertsson all scored along with an Aron Gunnarsson hattrick to take a 7 - 0 win. Another defeat was imminent as Liechtenstein travelled to Luxembourg. Goals from Sinani and Gerson Rodrigues scored in a 2 - 0 win for Luxembourg.

          Liechtenstein’s last outing in the international break was a home tie against Slovakia. The hosts had just 23% of the possession and slumped to defeat as Denis Vavro scored for Slovakia in added time of the first half to give Slovakia the 1 - 0 win.

          Bosnia and Herzegovina and Liechtenstein have met just eight times in their histories, the first coming back in 1999. Liechtenstein have never beaten Bosnia and Herzegovina, having lost seven times and drawing just once in that first meeting in 1999.

          Head coach Faruk Hadzibegic has alternated between a 5 - 3 - 2 and a 4 - 3 - 1 - 2 depending on the opposition. With the two sides having a somewhat similar rating, Hadzibegic may opt for the 4 - 3 - 1 - 2. The two up front will likely be Fenerbahce's Edin Dzeko and Fehervar’s Kenan Kodro, being supported by Sharjah’s Miralem Pjanic in the middle of the field.
