Ireland v Bosnia-Herzegovina Betting Tips, 16th November 2015
In a fog-cloaked match in Zenica on Friday night, Ireland put in a battling performance to each a 1-1 draw against Bosnia-Herzegovina, and they crucially managed to net that potentially all-important away goal.
When Robbie Brady scored for the visitors in the 82nd minute there were high hopes that it might be enough to secure what would be a famous victory, but former Man City striker Edin Dzeko popped up with the equaliser within three minutes to set up a tense finish to the game for Martin O’Neill’s men. They held out and the draw is still a creditable result, but can they finish the job tonight?
The fact that both Shane Long and John O’Shea have returned to training ahead of the second leg is a great fillip to O’Neill and if they are both passed fit to play we would be confident the Irish will have enough to earn the result they need to progress to the finals in France.
Bosnia will clearly be going for the win as they can’t risk the match ending 0-0 and Ireland creeping through on away goals, and as such we fancy this will be a far more open game than the first leg. With that in mind, we think the odds of 4/1 on Ireland scoring at least one goal in tonight’s match are just too good to turn down. We also feel that is a far safer bet than the 5/1 on the Irish qualifying because we can envisage far more scenarios in which they score than they don’t but still qualify.
In short, we fancy Ireland to both score AND qualify, but the better value bet here has to be the 4/1 on Ireland hitting the net at least once, so if you haven’t already got a betting account with Betfair, get over there today and take advantage of this fine enhanced odds offer from one of the best bookies for football there is.
