Albania Bosnia-Herzegovina betting prediction


Preview
Albania and Bosnia‑Herzegovina face , in what is to be the first friendly match of the year for both teams. There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 07‑06‑2011, the match ended with the final score: Bosnia‑Herzegovina (2‑0) Albania. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Albania

This is the first friendly match of the year for the home team, after having played 5 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Albania (0‑0) Morocco, Albania (1‑3) Ukraine, Albania (3‑1) Qatar, Luxembourg (0‑2) Albania and Austria (2‑1) Albania. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 9 conceded; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 14 goals scored and 19 conceded. In their last match, for the WC Qualification Europe, they got an away loss against Italy by (2‑0). In the last 10 home matches Albania has won 2, tied 2 and lost 6. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 12 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Albania starts their game with a 2-0 defeat to Italy, adding to their third defeat in the qualifying round. In this friendly game it is expected that Coach Giovanni De Biasi will play in the usual 5-3-1 privileging of the defensive organization and the direct balls for the attack, especially for the forward Cikalleshi. Note that the Albanian team presents great difficulty in maintaining possession of the ball and defensive transition due to the slowness of their players. It seems that the Albanian picker can count on all the players in the last game.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Strakosha, N. Aliji, E. Hysaj, A. Alla, F. Veseli, J. Hyka, B. Kukeli, A. Llullaku, M. Basha, L. Memushaj, B. Balaj.

Analysis of Bosnia-Herzegovina

The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 3 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Spain (3‑1) Bosnia‑Herzegovina, Switzerland (0‑2) Bosnia‑Herzegovina and Luxembourg (0‑3) Bosnia‑Herzegovina. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 11 conceded. In their last match, for the WC Qualification Europe, they got a home win against Gibraltar by (5‑0). In the last 10 away matches Bosnia‑Herzegovina has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 10 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Bosnia and Herzegovina arrive in this game motivated by the victory over Gibraltar, 5-0, totaling the third game without losing in official matches: the goals were signed by Ibisevic (2), Visca, Vrsajevic and Bicakcic. In this match, Coach Dragan Peric should play the usual 4-4-2 privileging possession of the ball and organizing attacks, looking for the best way to create danger to the opponent. However visitors are aware of Albania's defensive weaknesses, and hopefully opt for a more offensive style of play. For this game the coach can count on all the players at his disposal.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Begović, D. Dumić, O. Vranješ, E. Zukanović, T. Šunjić, S. Prcić, S. Lulić, M. Jajalo, R. Krunić, E. Džeko, K. Kodro.

The '' plus 1.5 goals'' is the market that we recommend for this friendly.
