Bulgaria vs Montenegro
Europe – Euro Qualifiers
Date: Friday, 22nd March 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Nacionalen Stadion Vasil Levski (Sofia).
Bulgaria just missed out on promotion from their group in the Nations League only due to some marginally superior performance by Norway. The former’s single loss in the group stages came against the eventual winners, Norway, and that too on the road for a narrow scoreline of 1-0. Anyway, the team is really motivated after their spirited performance and is eager to go out and put on an even better show.
On the contrary, Montenegro’s only saving grace was the presence of minnows Lithuania in their group. The latter lost all their games in the group stages, and Montenegro’s only two wins came against them. As a cause for worry, one of the only three goals Lithuania registered in the competition came against Montenegro.
Bulgaria vs Montenegro Head-to-head (h2h)
- The biggest h2h win was recorded by Bulgaria, and at their home. A 4-1 scoreline.
- Two of the last four matches saw Bulgaria scoring two or more goals.
- Maximum Montenegro has scored in a game is two goals. All the rest had one or none at all.
- The last two matches had under 2.5 goals.
Bulgaria vs Montenegro Prediction
Bulgaria will want to keep on going with their momentum and achieve something out of it. The presence of England in the group will be a worrying factor for the rest of the teams. One of the two qualifying spots is most probably going to the English, and the remaining five groups will have to fight it out for the last single spot.
Consequentially, as many points need to be posted on the board, and no match is unimportant. Bulgaria is high in confidence right now, and they are at home. Moreover, they are taking on Montenegro, who performed extremely unsatisfactorily in their most recent international competition.
And additionally, Bulgaria was unbeaten in ten of their last twelve matches, whereas Montenegro went winless in 16 of their last 20 games on the road. The latter also failed to score in three of their last five road trips, while Bulgaria found the back of the net in 15 of their last 19 ties.
Expect the hosts to come out on top this Friday.
