Bosnia-Herzegovina have been enjoying some excellent results of late and they travel to Turkey for this international friendly in high spirits having beaten Austria (1-0) and Northern Ireland (1-2) in their opening two UEFA Nations League outings. The Bosnians have become a tough side to score against under the leadership of boss Robert Prosinecki and they will certainly provide Turkey with meaningful opposition on Thursday evening, the Dragons stringing-together a six-game unbeaten run since the start of the year and looking to extend this in Turkey. Following their disappointing showing in their 2018 World Cup qualifiers last year the visitors will certainly be motivated despite this meeting being a friendly and we can expect a closely-fought affair at the Caykur Didi Stadyumu in Rize, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Turkey v Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The Turks have been struggling with inconsistency in recent outings and their UEFA Nations League campaign has thus far been little different in this regard with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to Russia followed by a 3-2 win in Sweden, Emre Akbaba scoring two late goals for the visitors. The Crescent Stars will be eager to continue the momentum by making it two wins on the bounce ahead of their weekend trip to Russia, however the Turks have been having defensive issues of late and we expect them to struggle against Bosnia. Indeed we’ll be siding with the visitors to manage something from this meeting and as such, we’ll be backing Bosnia on the Double Chance market with Paddy Power Bookmakers going 5/6 on Bosnia-Herzegovina-Draw.
