Bulgaria vs Ireland Prediction & Match Preview

Bulgaria vs Ireland
UEFA Nations League B
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Nacionalen Stadion Vasil Levski (Sofia).

Bulgaria has only one win in their last ten matches in the schedule across all major national competitions and has played only once in any contests this year until now.

Their previous encounter was at home against Belarus in the International Friendly, in which the former lost with a 1-0 score on the board.

It has to be noted that the host has given away clean sheets in four of the recent five fixtures. With this struggling form, the Lions will probably be far from affecting the traveling side in the game.

On the contrary, Ireland has been in a spectacular form with just one loss in their last ten clashes across all major contests in their schedule.

The Boys in Green are on a two-game unbeaten streak, but haven’t played in this year. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Denmark in the Euro qualifiers in November 2019.

Bulgaria vs Ireland Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has recorded four of the overall seven wins.
  • Four of the last 11 meetings have ended in a draw.
  • Jack’s army has been unbeaten in the last five matches.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 3-1 home win for Kenny’s boys.

Bulgaria vs Ireland Prediction

With their most recent visit in September 2019 turning in favor of the Republic of Ireland, they can expect a similar turn of events here at Sofia.

Since Bulgaria is not the strongest side even at home, the visitor will expect an easy win. The double chance favoring Ireland will probably be another suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns from the encounter.

In their recent four h2h meetings, both teams have scored, and at least two goals have been produced within the ninety minutes in each game. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.

Bulgaria vs Ireland Betting tips

  • Over 1.5 goals @ 1.44 (4/9).
