Bosnia-Herzegovina and Armenia meet at Stadion Grbavica, in a match for this phase of the qualification for the European Championship (Qualifying Round). There is no record of direct confrontations between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last match was played on 05-09-2009 and ended with the score: Armenia (0-2) Bosnia-Herzegovina. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since Armenia presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.
The home team will make its debut in this edition of the competition, as it did not have to play any of the eliminatory games prior to this group stage. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 9 conceded. The team comes to this match after a defeat away with Spain by (1-0). In the last 6 home matches for all competitions, Bosnia-Herzegovina have won 3, tied 2 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has been one of the best in the last 10 matches.
No doubt getting a place of access for the European Championship will not be easy, but Bosnia is in a group where that is possible, so it depends only on itself to make it happen. The team will need a lot of determination and regularity in their games, because good results should happen, even more so when playing in their domains. Thus, the selection of the house does not think about losing points, on the contrary, it intends to play a quality football and without errors to try to win. In this round the best players that are available will go to the field.
The visiting team will make its debut in this edition of the competition, as it did not have to play any of the eliminatory before this group stage. 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 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a draw away with Liechtenstein by (2-2). In the last 6 away matches for all competitions, Armenia won 1, drew 2 and lost 3. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 7 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need improvement. In 15 matches, they suffered the first goal 5 times and only managed 1 comeback.
To say that we will see Armenia in the next Eurocopa is a strange thing, because we know that its quality is low and there are stronger selections in its group, but we know that it will try to give its best in the field. Of course, he is more likely to fight against the last place and not for the first places, so he hopes to get as many points as possible, but to make it real it will be necessary to show a performance above the average in his games, since the difficulty is great. In this round the best players that are available will go to the field.
