Bulgaria Prediction – Can Bulgaria claim first win?

Having failed to win any of their 7 matches in Group A to date and an inferior goal difference to second from bottom Montenegro, Bulgaria sit bottom of the group with just 3 points to their name after drawing with Montenegro (home and away) and Kosovo.

However, defeats to Czech Republic (away), England (home and away) and Kosovo have done the damage and Bulgaria’s hopes of an appearance in next year’s European Championships have now been left in tatters.

Only Montenegro have scored fewer goals than Bulgaria throughout these Euro 2020 qualifiers, and having lost 4 of their last 5 matches overall leading up to this Sunday clash with 2nd placed Czech Republic, Bulgaria look to have their work cut out despite holding home advantage here.

With just 1 win out of their last 11 matches overall in Euro qualifiers (which was a 2-0 home win v Azerbaijan), results overall have been pretty poor for the hosts, while 1 win out of their last 12 matches at home is even worse.

Czech Republic Prediction – Can Czech Republic continue dominance?

5 wins out of their 7 matches to date in Group A for Czech Republic have seen them do enough to claim a top two finish regardless of the result in this Sunday’s clash with Bulgaria, with the visitors’ success being largely centered around a 100% winning record on home soil.

A heavy 5-0 defeat away to England at Wembley in the opening match in Group A threatened to de-rail Czech Republic’s ambitions of reaching next year’s European Championships at an early stage, but although they suffered a second defeat away at Kosovo, Czech Republic finished their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign in strong fashion.

A sequence of 5 wins from their last 6 matches saw Czech Republic claim the second spot behind group leaders, England, and blow away their closest rivals and surprise package, Kosovo, into qualification.

Results away from home have also been strong for Czech Republic as they’ve registered 7 wins out of their last 10 matches on their travels in Euro qualifiers, as well as winning 5 of the previous 6 encounters against Bulgaria.


Key-Facts – Bulgaria vs Czech Republic

  • Bulgaria have won just 1 out of their last 12 matches at home in Euro qualifiers
  • Bulgaria are still without a win from 7 matches in Group A
  • Czech Republic have won 5 of the last 6 previous meetings against Bulgaria


Betting Tips Verdict

Bulgaria have really struggled with these Euro 2020 qualifiers so far in this campaign, and this trend should continue against a quality Czech Republic outfit.
