Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Northern Ireland have been poor in this inaugural Nations League campaign, and it’s difficult to see them improving in this round of football predictions. 

They have lost their first two games in the competition, and they are unlikely to stop that record against a strong Bosnia side on home soil. A Bosnia win comes in at 8/13 with Sky Bet.

2 We fancy:

Even if they are underdogs in this clash, manager Michael O’Neill will want his side to go down fighting, and they have only failed to score in one of their last three games. 

With that in mind, a 2-1 home win, priced at 15/2 with Ladbrokes looks to be a good shout as a football score prediction.

3 It's a long shot, but…

If you want to put a Northern Ireland bet into your midweek football bet tips and predictions, there are value options available.

Grigg is expected to start this game, and he netted the late consolation in the reverse fixture in Belfast in September. The Wigan Athletic man is at 11/1 to score last with William Hill.

One to Watch: Edin Dzeko

Despite being aged 32, Dzeko remains the key man for Bosnia, and he is a regular feature of their Nations League previews. 

He scored the winner in their last competitive game, against Austria, and he is expected to be a strong shout as a Nations League prediction this time around. 

The Roma striker is at 5/2 to score first with bet365.

Northern Ireland have an injury concern over striker Shane Ferguson, after he was withdrawn in their defeat to Austria. If he misses out, Will Grigg is on hand to step in.

Bosnia vs Northern Ireland Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Bosnia take on Northern Ireland at the Stadion Grbavica on Tuesday

Michael O’Neill will be happy to see the back of the Nations League competition, with his side losing at home to Bosnia and away to Austria last week.

Those results have essentially confirmed their relegation into Group C for the next edition of the competition, and he will be most disappointed that the tournament has disrupted their progress following a strong showing during World Cup qualification. 

Bosnia on the other hand look to be developing an efficient unit around the experience of Dzeko, Besic, Begovic and Miralem Pjanic ahead of the European Championships qualifiers in 2019. 

Another player catching the eye recently is midfielder Edin Visca, who netted a hat-trick in their friendly win over South Korea back in June. He is at 13/5 to score anytime with Betfair. 

Predicted Score: Bosnia 2 - 1 Northern Ireland
