Ireland will host Bosnia & Herzegovina second leg of qualification play offs for promotion into European Championship 2016. In previous match away from home Ireland managed to stay undefeated 1:1, and now they must go for a victory in front of their fans. Ireland showed decent performances in qualifications and they ended at 3rd position at the table in group D behind Germany and Poland and they now have a chance to reach Euro 2016 in play offs, after draw in first leg they must give their best to save their net here and secure their place in France next year. Hosts will for sure try to exploit advantage of home field and with strong support of their fans reach European Championship, they must play here on high level and try to achieve positive result. Ireland is in good form, they for sure have enough quality to win here and win their placement on Euro 2016. Goalkeeper Shay Given and midfielder David Meyler will stay out of the action for this match due to injuries while appearances of forwards Daryl Murphy and Shane Long and defender John O'Shea are in doubt due to a minor injuries.
Bosnia & Herzegovina on the other side didn't impressed with performances in first duel must go for a victory here but it won't be easier than in a first match. Bosnia & Herzegovina showed decent performances in qualifications and they ended at 3rd position in group B behind Belgium and Wales, they must show much better performances than in a first match to achieve positive outcome and reach Euro 2016. Before previous duel one week ago, these two sides last time met 3 years ago in friendly match and Ireland was better and achieved narrow victory. This is now decisive match, they must achieve positive result here to progress to France next year. Bosnia & Herzegovina must try to score in this match at all costs, since in case of goalless draw they will be eliminated due to away goal. They are under a pressure now and it will be very hard for them now in this match on the road, they didn't managed to take advantage in first match at home and now they must give their best to win. They have no problems with injuries, all players are fully fit and ready for this match, and Muhamed Besic returns form a suspension.
This will for sure be very interesting clash, after first match where game was ended by draw 1:1, both sides are now under pressure, Ireland must try to exploit support of their fans and achieve positive result, in case of goalless draw they will progress on Euro 2016, while Bosnia has imperative to win, but I believe that the hosts are closer to a victory in this match.
