Can France qualify from Group D without losing a match?
Literally, the Tricolors instantly secured the first position of the tournament bracket from the beginning of the qualifying rounds in Group D.

- 31.03.2021 – Bosnia and Herzegovina: 1-0.
The question of whether France will remain a successful leader of Group D will be decided in the re-match of the teams.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina are in a precarious situation!
Bosnia and Herzegovina have just one point from two games and, thus, occupies the penultimate position in Group D. The team still has opportunities to improve the situation in further games to gain more points but, unfortunately, will not be able to join the elites. The Golden Lilies seem to be playing out the selection.
Thus far, the Golden Lilies have played two matches that ended with a draw and a defeat:
- 24.03.2021 – vs Finland: 2-2;
- 31.03.2021 – vs France: 0-1.
Considering the results of the last meetings, the potential of both rivals, and their levels of play, we are ready to name the favorite of the upcoming match: the balance of power will remain in the first half and no team will score; but in the second half, a real struggle will begin. Both teams will score one goal, then France will defeat Bosnia and Herzegovina and become the winner of the match.
