Bulgaria vs France: Preview and Predictions

Bulgaria vs France Predictions World Cup Qualifier 7th October 2017

Bulgaria vs France
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group A)
Date: Saturday, 7th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Borisov Arena.

France will have a very tough test on Saturday when they need to pick up three points if they want to save the top position in the Group A.

Les Bleus are only a single point ahead of Sweden at the top with two games left to play and Bulgarians can be a tricky opposition on their soil.

This guarantees a very entertaining evening of football on Saturday at Stadion Vasil Levski in the Bulgarian capital.


Bulgarians have already helped Didier Deschamps and his men a lot by beating Sweden 3-2 on the home court last month.

They have made Stadion Vasil Levski a fortress in this qualifying term since Petar Hubchev’s side won five games on the trot on the home soil netting as many as five goals past the likes of Netherlands and Sweden.


Deschamps’ men have been heavily criticized after a shocking goalless draw with Luxembourg at Stade de France in the previous round.

Interestingly, it came only three days after Les Blues bagged four in a demolishing victory over Nethertlands (Thomas Lemar’s brace and goals from Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe).

Bulgaria vs France: Head to head

Bulgaria have always been a tricky opposition for France and you should not be surprised to know that the teams have seven wins each ahead of their 16th H2H encounter.

Additionally, Bulgaria have won six and drawn one of their seven matches with France on the home court.

Bulgaria vs France: Prediction

The value simply has to be with the Bulgarians here as they are heavily underestimated by the bookies, being priced up at 12/1 to pick up the victory.

We’ll remind you – Bulgaria have 6-1-0 in H2H matches with France on the home ground and they have won each of their last five home fixtures in general.
