World Cup 2014 qualifiers’ preview: Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Greece

Although the Group G leaders Bosnia-Herzegovina are level on points with the second-placed Greece, they are considered to be sure-fire favourites to win the top-of-the-table clash in Zenica. Both teams have 10 points from four games, but while Bosnia bagged 15 goals and conceded 2, Greece managed to net just 5 and concede one. Greece faced Bosnia on October 12th, 2012, but the game ended in a goalless draw.

Bosnia-Herzegovina team news:

Bosnia-Herzegovina could make it through for a major tournament for the first time in their history, after failing to qualify through play-offs for 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012.

Man City’s Dzeko and Suttgart’s Ibisevic are expected to team up front, while another star player Stoke’s Asmir Begovic will take his place between the sticks.

Roma’s Miralem Pjanic and Hoffenheim’s Sejad Salihović will definitely miss the forthcoming game through injuries.

Greece team news:

Greece boasting a clean bill of health and are prepared to deliver a fight against the free-scoring Bosnians. Theofanis Gekas and Dimitrios Salpingidis are likely to lead the attacking line against the Group G leaders.
