Bosnia and Herzegovina know the size of the task that awaits them in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group B, as they have never beaten Israel in any national team competition.
• The nations' only previous meetings at senior level came in 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification. Current captain Yossi Benayoun came off the bench as Richard Møller Nielsen's Israel beat Mišo Smajlović's Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-1 in Tel Aviv on 11 October 2000, but was an unused substitute in the rematch – a 0-0 draw in Sarajevo on 1 September 2001.
• Israel have won two and drawn one of the nations' three meetings in UEFA age-group competitions.
• In ten meetings in UEFA club competitions, Israeli sides' record against Bosnian opponents is W8 D1 L1; FK Borac Banja Luka's 3-2 UEFA Champions League win against Maccabi Haifa FC on 20 July 2011 is the only men's football victory for a Bosnian side against Israeli opponents in a UEFA competition.
