England vs Bulgaria
Date: Saturday, 7 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
The Three Lions have made an emphatic start to their campaign. They won both their opening games and delivered five goals each in either. Their combined scoreline for the ties is an impressive 10-1, and even more arresting is the fact that they took the pole position with every other side in the group playing more games than them.
The English have been a confident bunch for the last two years, with them almost making a run into the final of the recently-concluded FIFA World Cup. Moreover, they had topped their group in the League A of the Nations League and qualified for the semi-finals of the inaugural edition of the competition.
Meanwhile, Bulgaria was a part of the League C of the earlier-mentioned Nations League and finished behind Norway in the Group 3. Their performance in the Qualifiers took a much worse turn, as the squad is winless so far after four appearances, and interestingly is lining up against the toppers for the first time.
Going on, the home advantage and the intimidating strength of the squad surely tips the scale in the favor of the World Cup semi-finalists.

England vs Bulgaria Prediction
The English is unbeaten in their last nine games and won five of their former seven. They had also managed to score twice or more in these five fixtures, and importantly, scored five or more in both their matches in the Qualifiers so far. Moreover, the team has lost just thrice at home in the previous four years, and these were against Netherlands, Spain, and Belgium.
Moreover, the only goal England has conceded in the last four appearances in front of the home crowd was against Croatia, and on the other hand, Bulgaria is winless in their prior seven match-ups, and in 11 of their last 12 on the road.
Finally, in the prior sixty years, the team is yet to record a win against this opponent, and have scored only once in this period. As such, count on the hosts registering a great win.
