Bulgaria – Slovenia, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BULGARIA - SLOVENIA
Bulgaria finished 1-1 with Cyprus in a very, very interesting match. It was neither a nice, nor a bad result. But let’s pay attention to the game and the character the lions have shown. They have won all the respect, because for more than 30-35 minutes they have literally surrounded the post of Cyprus and it is a miracle that finally it was only 1-1, not a complete comeback, because definitely the better team was Bulgaria . In addition, the referee did not give a penalty in several controversial situations and it is not exaggerated to say that the Bulgarians were harmed, because if they had scored a goal earlier from penalty they could catch up later, because they would have more time. Lions should defeat Slovenia and even if they can it should be with more than 1 goal. Unfortunately, some very important players like Despodov, Iliev and Nedelev, who is suspended, will miss. It is now time for Kraev, Delev and the other attackers to take responsibility. Kraev scored the both goals against Slovenia in the first match of the group.
Slovenia has started to play well yet now, when it is no longer meaningful, as there are no chances to qualify. In addition, they have never achieved a victory in this group. There is serious rejuvenation in this team and obviously they look to the future. Slovenians perform well in attack, but in their last 10 matches they have only 1 win that came against Montenegro in a friendly match. However, it has been seen that they have made Norway suffer in the last match, but they will now be visitors and it will be harder for them.
Bulgaria is undoubtedly another team at Vasil Levski. Lions go out for anything or nothing. They have to show at least this level of the match against Cyprus and if it is backed up with a better performance in the ending phase, everything will be fine for them. Of course, they must also rely on a favorable outcome of the other match between Cyprus and Norway. Bulgaria has 9 wins in their last 11 home games, with the only two losses coming from the world champion, France, and Bosnia in a friendly game in Razgrad a few months ago. Obviously here you can rely on something obvious and it is to Bulgaria to win. The match this time, however, has no logic to be particularly closed. 1-0 is a good result, but uncertain. The Bulgarians, though with key absentees in the attack, will be looking for the goals, which will allow the Slovenes to play at counter. Our prediction is Over 0.5 goals first half at 1.54. An alternative to this is for Bulgaria to score first half at 1.93.
