FINLAND VS BOZNIA & HERZEGOVINA
The FIFA rankings make this match between Finland (#55) and Bosnia @ Herzegovina (#57) look tight, but the chances of a draw seem slim as Finland haven't been involved in a stalemate for 29 games (W 18, L11), during a run that saw the team that scored first win all but one of those fixtures.
That's surely going to worry this Bosnia side who have failed to score in four of their previous five matches (D1, L4).
However, they have more World Cup pedigree than their hosts having appeared in the 2014 tournament, and should have the ability to cause Finland problems after grinding out a result in three of their last four WCQ away outings vs nations ranked inside FIFA's top 60 (WI, D2, L 1).
PREDICTION: GG & FINLAND TO WIN. CS 2-1
ESTONIA VS CZECH REPUBLIC
As the lowest ranked nation in World Cup Qualifying (WCQ) Group E, Estonia (#108) will know they're expected to fulfil the role of group whipping boys here. Yet whilst eight of their last nine WCQ defeats came by a 2+ goal margin
That's bound to fill #42 ranked Czech Republic with confidence, especially after their recent successful UEFA Nations League campaign (W4, L2) that saw them promoted to League A.
PREDICTION: GG, OVER 2.5 GOALS & CZECH REPUBLIC TO WIN. CS 1-3
