Northern Ireland travel to Bosnia & Herzegovina in search of a place in the Euro 2020 play-off final

Bosnia & Herzegovina v Northern Ireland live stream and TV channel

Northern Ireland face a tricky encounter in Bosnia & Herzegovina as they seek to secure a spot at Euro 2020 next summer.


Boss Ian Baraclough has had a short time to prepare his squad for this semi-final, where a win would set up a Euro 2020 play-off final encounter with either Slovakia or Republic of Ireland.

And the team then need to turn their attention to two Nations League fixtures before the international break concludes.

Bosnia & Herzegovina come into this clash having drawn with Italy and narrowly lost to Poland during the previous international break.

And the hosts are arguably favourites heading into Thursday evening’s showdown.

Bosnia & Herzegovina v Northern Ireland team news

Bosnia & Herzegovina: Winger Haris Duljevic misses the match in Sarajevo after testing positive for Covid-19, while forward Elvir Koljic is injured.

Salernitana winger Milan Duric has been drafted into the squad. Edin Dzeko is likely to start up front.

Northern Ireland: Jonny Evans is a slight injury worry heading into the game but should partner Craig Cathcart in the heart of defence.

Conor Washington is likely to start up front on his own, while Steven Davis can break the Northern Ireland caps record of 120 appearances with a start in midfield here.

Our prediction: Bosnia & Herzegovina v Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland endured a 5-1 stuffing at the hands of Norway last time out and are yet to find their groove under manager Baraclough.

They will likely try and contain this hungry Bosnia & Herzegovina side, with Evans tasked with marking Dzeko out of the game.

The hosts have several players who can really threaten Northern Ireland here, and it’s difficult to see how Baraclough’s men escape with a win other than via a healthy slice of luck.

Our prediction: Bosnia & Herzegovina 3-1 Northern Ireland
