Borac Banja Luka
During this summer, Borac stated that ambitions this season are extremely high, which means winning the title. In order to achieve that, respectable head coach Nenad Lalatovic was brought in, and several new players were signed. Although at first everything looked idyllic, things very quickly changed completely.
In the first qualifying round of the Conference League, Borac played against B36 Torshavn. Everyone expected an easy advancing in the next round, but that didn’t happen. After a 2:0 win in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Borac shockingly lost 3:1 in Faroe Islands, and then went out on penalties. Start of the domestic league showed that players hadn’t recovered from the heavy blow. Borac played 2:2 against newcomer Sloga Doboj even though they were leading 2:0, and then they lost 3:1 against Sarajevo.
Coach Lalatovic offered to resign twice, but the club management sided with him. This had a positive effect, as Borac won 2:0 in the last round in always tough road game in Posusje. Now, next opponent is even easier and a new triumph would mean a calmer period for work.
Igman won First League of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina last season. Thanks to that, they achieve promotion to the Premier League for the first time in club’s history. They are a well-organized club with everything they need to stay in this league for a long period of time. Igman only lack experience at this level and that could be only problem in first few games.
Period between two seasons, Igman used to strengthen their team with players who played in the Premier League. Darko Bodul, Demir Jakupovic, Petar Bojo, Amer Dupovac, Anel Hebibovic, Mirsad Ramic and Edin Biber are just some of the players who played important roles in their clubs last season. Such reinforcements should be enough to prevent Igman from finishing in the last two places.
In the first round, Igman lost 1:0 against Siroki. In the first half, they had absolute initiative and controlled the situation on the pitch, but didn’t score a goal. On the other side, Siroki used first chance they got to score a goal, and that is the experience that Igman lacks. They will have an even more difficult task against Borac, but this is a game that they can play without any pressure.
Borac and Igman never played against each other in the past, so this will be their first match.
Nedeljko Piscevic and Aleksandar Subic won’t play for Borac due to injuries, while all players are available for Igman.
Borac BL vs. Igman Prediction
For Borac, this match is extremely important to continue in a good rhythm after win in Posusje. Igman recently signed several players and they are still not fully integrated, so it won’t be easy for them. Borac is the better team and they should win this match without much trouble.
