Bosnia’s quest for a first European Championship berth as an independent country will face another huge test when they host Portugal on Monday. Since featuring in the tournament as part of the now defunct Yugoslavia decades ago, Bosnia are hoping to scale the last few matches of the qualifying race successfully and join the league of nations that will be competing for Europe’s coveted prize. They go into this tie 4th in Group J, having garnered 6 points in 6 games. With this very poor showing, Bosnia no longer have their destiny in their hands as they have to fight hard to win their games and hope things go their way in other ties in the Group.
For Portugal, it has been a very impressive outing so far, maintaining a 100% run after 6 games with 24 goals scored. Following the painful Quarter Final exit at last year’s World Cup, Portugal brought in former Belgian gaffer, Roberto Martinez to rejig the squad as they hope to replicate the 2016 Euro triumph and the Nations League 2018/19 victory. Here, Portugal will be buzzing given their current run of form and the hunger of players like Ronaldo to smash more records and possible bow out in grand style.
Certainly, Bosnia have been awful in this qualifying race. However, they still have a glimpse of hope if they can grind out a positive result here. Unfortunately, that is highly unlikely given Portugal’s current form, experience and how dominant they have been throughout this series. Based on this, for our Bosnia Vs Portugal prediction, we expect Martinez’s men to cruise to victory.

Main tip: Portugal Win
Our Bosnia vs Portugal predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Portugal Win
Since losing 1-0 to Morocco in the last 8 of the 2022 World Cup, Portugal have won every game they have played across all competitions. Although some might argue that they have only faced relatively easy sides like Luxembourg and co during this run, it is a reflection of Roberto Martinez’s work so far and what this Portuguese side intend to achieve. With their place at the Euros almost certainly sealed, Portugal will be using the final few matches of the qualification to warm up before they begin their quest for a second continental title. In the reverse fixture of this tie, Bosnia were thumped 3-0 by Portugal, a testament to how dreadful the Eastern Europeans have been. Here, we do not see any miraculous turn around for Bosnia. Hence, we expect Portugal to pick all 3 points in this tie

Prediction 2: Portugal Score Both Halves
Portugal have been a joy to watch in this race for a place at next year’s European Mundial. So far, they have displayed a potent weapon upfront and a solid back line. This was evident in the reverse fixture when they beat Bosnia 3-0. Prior to that, they thumped Luxembourg 6-0, before thrashing the same side 9-0 back in September. This current run makes it logical to back Portugal to deliver on the goals front. In fact, in 4 of their last 6 games, the Portuguese have found the back of the net in both halves. Based on this, for our second Bosnia Vs Portugal prediction, we believe Portugal will score in both halves of this match.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Goals
The flair with which Portugal have been playing has been amazing so far. A return of 24 goals in 6 matched is highly enviable especially considering the short period within which the team has found synergy under Martinez. This goal scoring ability has made Portugal a team to watch as we countdown to Germany 2024. Also, the last 2 meetings between both sides produced at least 3 goals while one of Bosnia’s last 2 games yielded at least 3 goals. This means if both sides do what they are known for, we will be seeing a minimum of 3 goals in this match
