The home team entered the match more offensively, but two attempts by Insigne and one by Lorenzo Federico Chiesa were not precise. Dušan Bajević’s team did not use a good chance in the 27th minute, when Edin Višća shot over the goal after the pass of Armin Hodžić. The Italians later tried to endanger the goal of Ibrahim Šehić through Andrea Belotti and Nicola Barella, but the first half ended without goals.
In the continuation, the defence of the BH team was up to the task on two occasions, so in the 53rd minute, Armin Hodžić passed the goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and hit the goalpost. Two minutes later Chiesa on the other side also hit the post.
Bosnia and Herzegovina gained the advantage in the 57th minute. Višća took the corner, and in the Italian penalty area, Edin Džeko managed best and sent the ball into the net. He was assisted by Toni Šunjić.
Stefano Sensi equalized for Italy in the 67th minute.
Hodžić by his head shot hit Donnarumma with the ball in the 70th minute, after Višća threw the ball in, and a minute later, there was a good chance for the host that Allesandro Florenzi did not use.
Gojak, Džeko and Višća performed a good action in the 83rd minute, but Donnarumma stopped the shot of Višća. In the 90th minute, Muhamed Bešić also missed a chance.
