Bosnia and Herzegovina – Italy

Italy National Team training at the Technical Center of Coverciano on Monday 16 November 2020 behind closed doors.  Italy will be playing the UEFA Nations League Group Stage Group A – Matchday 6 game against Bosnia Herzegovina vs Italy on Wednesday 18 November 2020 at the Stadion Grbavica in Sarajevo at 20:45.   Italy has the objective to win the game to get the first position of the Group and qualify for the Final Four, which will be played in Milan and Turin in October 2021.

It is Portuguese Referee Artur Dias to direct the game. Assistant referees will be Rui Tavares (POR) and Paulo Soares (POR). Fourth official will be Vitor Fernandes Ferreira (POR).

👉 Current situation: Italy will reach the finals if they beat Bosnia and Herzegovina, or if they draw and the Netherlands do not beat Poland, or if the other game is drawn.

As reported by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), Italy deserved applause for their performance in Reggio Emilia, which saw them stretch their unbeaten run to 21 games (16 wins and five draws), and they will surely have received it from the 6,629,000 spectators, who tuned in to watch the game on television. Roberto Mancini’s side, who deservedly are the top seeds for the 2022 World Cup qualifying draw, are now called upon to negotiate the final hurdle to get to the Final Four of the Nations League.

Tomorrow morning, the team will leave Coverciano for Sarajevo and will train in the afternoon at the Stadion Grbavica in the Bosnian capital. Italy have played Bosnia and Herzegovina four times (two wins, one draw and one defeat), doing the double over the Balkan nation in EURO 2020 qualifying (21- in Turin and 3-0 in Zenica). The two sides drew 1-1 when they met two months ago in Florence. The only defeat (2-1) was in a friendly in November 1996 in Sarajevo, with Arrigo Sacchi resigning from his position as Italy head coach just weeks after that defeat.
