Portugal v Bosnia

Who will win this over 2 legs? Definitely the most interesting play-off and Bosnia should give Portugal a huge game this time. Would be a massive shock if Portugal did not reach the Euros, but I think they could have just enough.

The most exciting legs of the playoffs. It's going to be a different story this time around. Last time Bosnia played against a Portugal side without Ronaldo and still had problems. I think for psychological reasons Portugal will come through. Portugal's speed should be enough to cause problems even if their defenders are sloppy.

Tough prection here and we should have two entertaining legs. Wouldn´t be surprised if Bosnia walked through Portugal to be honest since the Portuguese are very unconsistent and are coming on a low and only qualified for the playoffs on goal difference over Norway.

Bosnia on the other hand almost beat France in Paris, and are looking confident.

Maybe experience and individual brilliance could solve the things for Portugal.

Since Paulo Bento took over the NT we have started playing good football and managed to recover the quality that we have completely lost during the management of Carlos Queiroz.

The debacle in Copenhagen was mostly due to our problems in defence which were also, but not only, caused by injuries.

The play-off games will only happen in one month from now so we should have everybody fit by then. I expect two tough matches, just like it happen two years ago, but like then I believe we will go through.

Could go either way. Portugal have more all around quality but BiH has some good form going into the playoff. I'd give the edge to Portugal.

I think BiH is the better national team but if this board is anything to go by they have a self-defeating attitude and will choke in this fixture. So, I voted for Portugal.

Bosnia was again unlucky in the draw. I dont think they can beat Portugal, but I will cheer for them anyway!
