Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Finland 31-19 in the fourth round of the 2020 European Men's Handball Championship qualifying Group 5 in Tuzla on Sunday evening.

In a full Mejdan Hall in Tuzla, some 120km northeast of the capital Sarajevo, the visiting team played better in the first half, taking a 3-2 lead. 15 minutes before the end of the half, Bosnia rallied to take the scores to 16-10 at the break.

Into the second half, Bosnia continued to make headway, eventually winning 31-19.

The result means Bosnia now sit first in Group 5 with 6 points, with the Czech Republic also on 6 points followed by Belarus with 4 points, with two group matches still to play.

The 2020 European Men's Handball Championship will take place in January 2020 and be co-hosted for the first time by three countries: Austria, Norway and Sweden.
