In stark contrast to their opponents, the hosts have lost each of their last three games and will be seeking to arrest this slump in form.
Bosnia and Herzegovina failed to return to winning ways last time out as they fell to a 0-1 defeat against USA in a friendly tie, back in December. Prior to that, they picked up one draw and two consecutive defeats in their closing three games of the World Cup qualifiers.
Bosnia and Herzegovina head into Friday’s game winless in all but one of their last six games, in all competitions. A 2-0 win in Kazakhstan on October 9 being the only exception.
Meanwhile, Georgia maintained their fine run of results as they claimed a hard-earned 1-0 win over Uzbekistan in a friendly fixture on November 15. They have now won each of their last three games, having edged out Kosovo and Sweden in their final two group-stage games of the World Cup qualifiers.
However, they have won just one of their last four away games, losing three and conceding 12 goals in that time.
