Bulgaria vs England Betting Tips & Predictions
England will be looking to bounce back from that Czech Republic setback when they travel to Sofia on Monday, with the Three Lions having thrashed Bulgaria 4-0 at Wembley as recently as early September.
Gareth Southgate’s side were a goal to the good by half-time before adding three second-half goals and we’re backing England to lead at the break and the final whistle again, something that has happened in all matches to date.
Southgate is likely to shuffle the pack after Friday’s clash against Czech Republic, with Tammy Abraham, Callum Wilson and Marcus Rashford among those players hoping for some game minutes in this Euro 2020 qualifier.
Similarly, we might see impressive Chelsea pair Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount take to the pitch against a team who are yet to win in qualifying and are now playing for a pride.
Bulgaria are not a complete no-hoper and they have taken two draws along the way, with Krasimir Balakov’s side claiming a 1-1 draw in Kosovo as well as the same scoreline against Montenegro.
There was also a slender defeat away to Czech Republic, with the home side needing to be respected and striker Ivelin Popov will lead the line and make life difficult for his opposite number.
However, the majority of the Bulgaria squad play in their native domestic league and that lack of quality is likely to be a problem against an England side who have so many options.
The Three Lions managed to win 5-1 away to Montenegro who are a similar calibre of opponents and we’re expecting a large margin of victory in this clash, with England looking to set the tone early and we’re backing them to have their noses in front yet again.
