Finland managed to win 2-0 their desperately needed win against Armenia during their second round match. With the win, the Finns have boosted their confidence. They are looking forward to continue in the same trend as they host Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bosnia and Herzegovina on the other hand suffered a 2-2 draw against Greece. They were leading 2 goals up but by the time of the last whistle, the visitors had managed to upset the lead to a 2-2 tie. The Balkan Dragons are now looking forward to return to the winning ways when they travel to Finland.
