Wales vs Bulgaria
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
The Dragons are the top dogs in Group B4, and they have already raced to the top of standings. Ever since their semi final run in the Euro 2016, the team has set high hopes for themselves, and they recently backed it up by qualifying for the next edition of continental competition in style.
Meanwhile, the Lions are a team in crisis. They are going through a troubling spell at the moment, and have been on an even worrying run away from home.
Moreover, this is Gareth Bale’s chance to shine. After being on the sidelines for a whole year at Real Madrid, we can count on the wounded beast to return to form.
Wales vs Bulgaria: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, Ryan Giggs’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road.
- They have conceded a total of one goal from the past four match-ups.
- Since 1995, only once have they lost against this opponent.
- Meanwhile, the Dragons are searching for their first win since 1983 at home.
Wales vs Bulgaria: Prediction
Giggs’s men are on a three-game winning run, and a seven-match unbeaten run. They had also won five of their former six appearances at home, and the sole game where they failed to win was against Croatia (World Cup Finalists – 2018).
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 14 of their preceding 15 overall fixtures, and they were winless in 14 of their past 15 road trips as well. In the process, they had also conceded two or more goals in nine of these preceding 15 games away from home.
Furthermore, they had failed to qualify for the 2021 Euros, despite being included in a group that had teams like Kosovo, Montenegro, and Czech Republic.
All through the competition, they were able to secure a total of just one win, and scored a total of just six goals. In return though, they conceded 17.
On the contrary, Giggs’s men stood unbeaten all through their qualification campaign in home fixtures, and finished second in their group – thus obtaining a ticket to take part in the upcoming continental tournament.
Going on, they had also won the latest h2h clash, and they have conceded a total of just one goal from the past four such encounters.
For these reasons, expect Wales to emerge victorious this Sunday at the Cardiff City Stadium.
