The home team comes to this 2nd leg match with the advantage of the away draw by (1‑1), so all they need is a tie for under 1 goal to stay ahead in the aggregate result. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium.

They haven’t lost any of the last 5 home matches for this competition. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

To hold the advantage in this play-off the coach Martin O'Neill has already employed the defender O'Shea and the winger Walters, who were suspended in the first leg. However, the Ireland still can not rely on Shay Given neither David McGoldrick. In this game is expected that the Irish coach opt for a more defensive strategy to win at least a goalless draw.

However the coach Mehmed Baždarević lost the central defender Mensur Mujdza: the player was injured at the minute 51. Edin Dzeko continues in great performance: the advanced of Roma scored the only goal of the team in the first leg.

Coach: M. Baždarević.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely stage for this game will be the occurrence of few goals. After tied 1-1 it's expected that this game to be relatively calmer because, playing at home, Ireland will act more defensive hindering the situation at maximum to Bosnia. Thus we can foresee that this game ends with a few goals in marker.
