Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina

The UEFA Nations League is back and in-form Italy will seek a 12th consecutive international win when meeting Bosnia.

Here are the best betting stats so that you can make better wins.

🏟 Match context

The Azzurri players will be familiar with Bosnia & Roma skipper Edin Dzeko, who is the visitors’ major hope of getting on the score sheet here. Italy has won 11 consecutive internationals, a sequence which included a pair of wins over Bosnia and six clean sheets in ten Euro 2020 qualifiers.

After testing positive for COVID-19, former Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has withdrawn from the Bosnia squad and his absence is a major blow. Watch out for 22-year-old Italian winger Federico Chiesa, the Fiorentina youngster will be eager to impress at his own Artemio Franchi stadium.
