The battle for UEFA Euro 2020 qualification in Group J comes down to a race for second place, with group leader Italy already appearing firmly ensconced in the top spot. But the contest for the Number 2 spot remains wide open, and a crucial game in that race pits fourth-place Republic of Finland against favored, third-place Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday. But Finland will be the more desperate of the sides, as the Bosnians have a fall–back position. By winning their group in last year’s UEFA Nations League, as Reuters reports, The Golden Lilies have earned themselves a chance at Euro 2020 qualification through UEFA’s new playoff system, regardless of where they finish in Group J, or the outcome of the match that will live stream on Saturday.

Fans of the English domestic league will find some added intrigue in the game, as two stars of newly promoted Norwich City find themselves on opposite sides of Saturday’s contest. For Finland, 29-year-old striker Teemu Pukki, who led Norwich City with 30 goals last season (per Soccerway), was named his country’s Player of the Year, as well as winning the same award in the English Football League Championship, in which he was also top scorer.

Pukki will face his Norwich teammate Mario Vrančić, a 30-year-old midfield star who added another 10 goals for Norwich, PinkUn.com reports.

The first — and until Saturday only — time Finland has faced Bosnia and Herzegovina came in 2004, per 11v11, when Bosnia and Herzogovina scored a 1-0 win in an international friendly match.
