Bulgaria vs Norway
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday 9th September 2018
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Vasil Levski National Stadium (Sofia).
Bulgaria got off to a great start in the UEFA Nations League by beating Slovenia 2-1 on Thursday night and they will know that a win here will bring them a long way into qualifying from their group and trying to go far in this competition.
They are in good form too with just 1 loss from their last 5 international matches which came against Bosnia in a 1-0 defeat. What is true is that even though the nation is in good form they haven’t really been tested since they have won games against the likes of Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia and even drew against Luxembourg in a shock result last year.
Norway are not the force they once were and come into this game as the outsiders to win. But like Bulgaria they got off to a winning start in the Nations League with a 2-0 win over Cyprus. They come into this game in rich form with 5 wins in a row. Including an impressive 3-2 win away to Iceland. They haven’t lost a game in 10 months.

Bulgaria vs Norway: Prediction
Bulgaria start as the favourites and yet on paper Norway are the most impressive team. They are in great form and have had to play tougher nations over the past year.
The only advantage for Bulgaria is that they play this match at home. With very limited betting markets available for this match we need to pick a straight result and the one we will opt for is the value one. Norway have had an impressive 2018 and we think that can continue so will go for the away win.
