Portugal and Bosnia go into tonight’s second leg Euro 2012 play-off deadlocked at 0-0 with both sides believing that they have what it takes to make it to Poland and Ukraine next summer.

Portugal are theoretically in the better position as they will be at home tonight and captain Cristiano Ronaldo feels that his side will be better equipped to take the game to Bosnia as he admits that last weeks first leg was played on a ‘vegetable patch’.

Man City star Edin Dzeko believes that the pitch also held back Bosnia saying Maybe the Portuguese think we will be easier opponents on a better surface but we won’t. The fact is that we are also looking forward to playing on a quality pitch,”

Bosnia will be looking to make history tonight. Should they qualify it will be the first tiime they have made it to a major tournament since they gained independence.
