Bulgaria have offered little for their faithful to cheer about this campaign. As such, the final nail in the coffin could well be at the hands of the in-form Czech Republic contingent this weekend.

Bulgaria vs Czech Republic Prediction
Bulgaria suffered their biggest defeat yet when they squared up against England last month at home. The Three Lions hardly broke a sweat in that matchup and finished the ninety minutes with a whopping 6-0 scoreline.
With no more than three points to their name, albeit from sharing the spoils on three different occasions, Bulgaria are deservedly at the bottom of the ladder. It also looks like they will be heading to the exit without a taste of success as Czech Republic have been a force to reckon with.
The away side recorded their third successive win in their most recent matchup against Kosovo after they came back from behind to post a 2-1 victory. Prior to that fixture, the guests secured all three points against mighty England themselves, also by a 2-1 scorecard.
To pile on even more misery for the Bulgarian faithful, the hosts have not been able to take down this foe in any of their last five h2h meetings. With home advantage turning out to be a myth for Bulgaria so far, an easy for the Czech Republic is certainly in the reckoning.
Furthermore, despite losing out on the win, the hosts have bagged a consolation goal at the least in two of their last three games here. Moreover, the visitors have not been at the best, defensively, on the road and have just one clean sheet to boast of from their last three outings.
Taking into account that both teams got their names on the scoresheet together in their last meeting too, expect goals down each end without fail in this one.
