Edin Dzeko scored as Bosnia-Herzegovina beat Liechtenstein 5-0, while Italy’s next Euro 2020 opponents Finland squeezed past Greece.
The Azzurri fought back for a 3-1 victory away to Armenia, maintaining their perfect start to qualifying Group J with a fifth straight win.
In the evening kick-offs, Bosnia found it tougher than expected to break down minnows Liechtenstein, as it was only 1-0 until the 80th minute with Amer Gojak on target.
When Andreas Malin accidentally put through his own net, it opened up the floodgates for four goals in the final 10 minutes.
Roma striker Dzeko was among them, having also rattled the crossbar earlier on, with Gojak completing his brace and Edin Visca on the scoresheet.
Finland remain second in Group J with 12 points from five games, as only a Teemu Pukki penalty proved the difference against Greece in a 1-0 victory.
It was Finland’s sixth straight win in Tampere without conceding and they host Italy on Sunday evening in a top of the table showdown.
