Bosnia v Greece Betting: Visiting defence unlikely to stave off eventual defeat

Both teams have made solid starts to their World Cup 2018 qualifying campaigns and we expect the hosts to edge a tight encounter on Friday evening

Greece look to continue their unbeaten start to World Cup qualifying with a trip to Bosnia on Friday night.

The 2004 European champions were seconds away from recording an impressive victory away to Belgium in March, before Romelu Lukaku grabbed a last-minute equaliser as the game finished 1-1 and the Red Devils stayed top of Group H.

Greece remain two points behind them in second, with the Bosnians a further point back in third, meaning that these three sides all harbour hopes of finishing top. dabblebet price Bosnia at 4/6 (1.66) for the win in Zenica on Friday, with Greece offered at 9/2 (5.50) and the draw available at 13/5 (3.60).

Bosnia remain a strong prospect on home soil and where they are unbeaten in their last eight matches, a run spanning three years. Indeed, they came extremely close to beating Greece on the road earlier in the qualifying campaign before a stunning injury-time strike for Georgios Tzavellas salvaged a 1-1 draw for Michael Skibbe's side.

Ever since their unlikely continental triumph in 2004, the Greeks have built a reputation for defensively solidity, and while that was notably lost during their disasterous Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, the side seem to have rediscovered some of their resilience under German Skibbe.

Under 2.5 goals used to be an almost guaranteed selection in matches involving Greece and with their last five games seeing less than three goals, a repeat is offered at 8/15 (1.53).

Yet Bosnia have a fine scoring record at home where they have netted in every game since September 2013, and the price of 2/1 (3.00) for a home win with under 2.5 goals appeals. The selection pays out with a 1-0 or 2-0 home success, and Friday's match is likely to be a tight affair.

Bosnia overcame Cyprus 2-0 at home last October, while Greece's two most recent defeats have both come by a 1-0 scoreline against Australia and Belarus respectively.
