After failing to win their initial matches in the UEFA Nations League 2022-23, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Romania get down to work on Tuesday.
While the hosts were held to a 1-1 draw by Finland, Romania conceded to Montenegro to win, raising tensions between the two countries ahead of their Group B3 clash in Zenica.

Bosnia-Herzegovina Vs Romania Tip and Prediction
Bosnia-Herzegovina has failed to play to their full potential since the return of international football in September 2020.
Only three wins have been recorded in over two years, with the most memorable coming away in Kazakhstan, and while draws with Italy, the Netherlands, and France should not be overlooked, the Dragons urgently need to find some form in this tournament.
Returning to home soil gives Bosnia-Herzegovina an opportunity to gain momentum, but it wasn’t long ago that they were losing on familiar territory to Finland and Ukraine.
Romania has made strides in the last nine months, with only three defeats in ten matches across all competitions.
Edward Iordanescu would have taken his squad to Montenegro anticipating at least a point against a possible title contender, but his team was unable to hold off their hosts in the last 30 minutes.
The home team won 2-0 thanks to goals from Stefan Mugosa and Marko Vukcevic, putting Romania in last place in the group ahead of another difficult away journey.
On a more positive side, Romania has now gone 12 games without surrendering more than twice in a game, but only scoring twice on four occasions.
These two sides haven’t played in 11 years, with Romania winning 3-0 in Bucharest the previous time they met.
Both teams are under pressure to find something extra to stay up with the early pacesetters, as neither is in great form. Although the hosts are likely to win by a slim margin on Tuesday, we believe Romania will do just enough to take home a significant portion of the prizes.
