The UEFA Nations League returns to the fold this weekend as the Netherlands take on Bosnia and Herzegovina in what is set to be an important game in the context of the competition. The Dutch are currently in a period of transition at the moment and will want to prove a point in this game.

Bosnia and Herzegovina narrowly lost to Northern Ireland on penalties during the week and will now have to turn their attention to a particularly difficult game in the UEFA Nations League. The Bosnians will have to be at their best to stand a chance in this game.

The Netherlands suffered a 1-0 defeat against Mexico during the week and newly appointed manager Frank de Boer will likely make a few changes to his starting line-up going into this fixture. The Oranje slumped to a defeat against Italy last month and will want to return to winning ways in this game.


Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Netherlands Head-to-Head

The Netherlands have surprisingly never played an official fixture against Bosnia and Herzegovina since the turn of the century and will want to pick up an important victory in this historic fixture. Bosnia and Herzegovina have only one point from their two games in the UEFA Nations League and currently sit at the bottom of Group 1.

The Netherlands have a formidable squad and will be disappointed with their defeat against Mexico earlier this week. Bosnia and Herzegovina do have their fair share of talented players and can potentially trouble the Oranje this weekend.

Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Netherlands Predicted XI

Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Netherlands Prediction

Bosnia and Herzegovina will have to play out of their skins to take anything away from this fixture. The home side can take heart from the fact that the Netherlands have not been at their best in recent weeks and the likes of Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko will have to step up to the plate this weekend.

The Netherlands kept the ball well against Mexico but struggled to create chances in the final third. Frank de Boer will have to get his tactics right in this game and is likely to field an attacking line-up that gives the Netherlands the best chance of clinching a victory.
