Bosnia and Herzegovina welcome Albania to the Bilino Polje in Zenica tomorrow in what will be a re-match of the country’s first game as an independent nation.
That first match in 1995 ended in a 2-0 loss for Safet Susic’s men and the hosts will see this game as a chance to show how much they have progressed in the last sixteen years.
The Dragons currently sit fifth in Group D but a win tomorrow night would see them leapfrog Albania, Romania and Belarus and occupy second place, which could yet lead to a first-ever major finals appearance for the nation.
Despite coming off the back of a 3-0 loss to Romania, Bosnia are undefeated at home in qualifying so far, having beaten Luxembourg and Romania and battling to 1-1 draw with Albania.
As such, the home side enter the clash as favourites, with bwin pricing them at 9/20. The draw is also available at 3/1, but with Albania high in confidence following a 1-0 victory over Belarus last time out, many could be tempted by the 6/1 odds on an away win.
The visitors are also vying for a spot in a major finals for the first time and currently sit one point above their hosts in Group D.
France appear to be too strong to be caught, so the best chance of qualifying for Euro 2012 for either side will be as a best runner-up or via play-off.
Football betting enthusiasts looking to make the game a little more exciting could be tempted to give the hosts a 1-0 advantage in order to alter the odds.
By doing this, the away win moves to a 19/1 shot, while the draw offers odds of 15/2.
Bwin has put a number of markets up for this encounter and many people looking for odds on international matches could be encouraged to predict a final score for the game.
Anyone expecting a repeat of Bosnia’s first game in 1995 can back a 2-0 win for Albania at 35/1, while a 2-1 victory for the away side is priced at 22/1.
These are outside bets, however, as with home advantage the safe option could be to back a home win.
A 1-0 victory for the Dragons is priced at 21/4, while a more impressive 2-0 win offers odds of 11/2, with a £10 bet returning £65.
