After a successful showing in the 2018-19 tournament, Bosnia was awarded promotion to League A Group 1; however, they were relegated to League B for the current season since they were unable to create an impact in the 2020-21 competition.

The Dragons are now in first place in Group 3, having earned eight points in their first four games, and they have a solid chance of achieving their goal of earning promotion back to League A for the next season.

The Dragons still have two games to play in the current campaign. On June 4, Bosnia started their tournament off with a 1-1 tie against Finland. Three days later, on June 9, they recorded a 1-0 triumph against Romania.

Ivaylo Petev’s team is now in first place in their group after a 3-2 victory against Finland on June 24. This victory put them on top of the group heading into their remaining two matches against Montenegro and Romania.

In their third game in the group, they tied 1-1 with Montenegro. If Bosnia were to win this match, they would move up to first place in Group 3, however, they did not qualify for the World Cup in 2022, therefore they will not be competing if is scheduled to begin in November.

Montenegro has seven points after four games, with two wins, one draw, and one loss. The Brave Falcons beat Romania 2-0 on June 4 and Finland 2-0 three days later. Montenegro drew 1-1 with Bosnia at home before beating Romania 3-0 to finish second in the group.

A victory on Friday would put them in top place before their last game against Finland. They are in a solid position to escape relegation back to League C, so losing out on first place would not be the end of the world. Miodrag Radulovic’s team has never qualified for a World Cup final and finished fourth in qualifying.
