Bulgaria vs Gibraltar
Date: Wednesday, 11 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia.
Bulgaria have seen narrow losses to Finland (2-0) and Wales (0-1) which saw them out of the race to win the Group in Nations League B, but they have a fierce battle to avoid relegation in November. They host Gibraltar for their Wednesday’s friendly looking to pick it up ahead of the clashes against Finland and Republic of Ireland, which promises a side motivated to win.
Lions have struggled for goalscoring consistency but it doesn’t feel they’ll be in for the same sort of a challenge now, having scored just a single goal in four games now behind them. They have been tough to break down and Georgi Dermendzhiev will want to build on such a feeling. Still, the attacking line to be led by Dimitar Iliev will have to deliver this time around.
Gibraltar top the Group D Group 2 in Nations League, where they beat San Marino (1-0) and Liechtenstein (0-1) in two outings so far. Still, they saw a comfortable 2-0 loss to Malta in October friendly and this feels like a more suitable game to look at, despite it being a friendly. They travel to Sofia with a lot yet to prove and we don’t really see them impressing at Vasil Levski Stadium despite good team spirits.
Bulgaria vs Gibraltar Head-to-head
This will be the sides’ first head-to-head clash as they didn’t have a chance to meet beforehand.
Bulgaria seem to have more to their name but have struggled to show off lately.
Both sides have seen two or fewer goals in three of their respective last four outings.
Bulgaria vs Gibraltar Prediction
We will back Bulgaria to end their losing streak here and we’ll go for them to lift their spirits but we don’t see it as a very convincing setup in the making. We’ve been used to few goals on both ends and with that in mind, we’re now going for Bulgaria to win & Under 3.5 goals FT at 2.00!
We don’t feel Gibraltar will be able to make an impact and going for a NO on Both teams to score feels like a banker bet at 1.50. We have seen Bulgaria tough defensively and with that in mind, going for a Home win to Nil also feels like good value – despite the visitors’ solid run in UEFA Nations League D recently.
