Reasons for betting on Bulgaria vs Sweden tip

Bulgaria hasn’t got any room for calculations, and they have to win against Sweden. Meanwhile, the guests in this game are at the top of the group B, and have a nice chance to stay there. This is one of the crucial games in this group, which can define the final outcome and the teams who will travel to Russia.
Vasil Levski stadium will be the venue for this important match.

Bulgaria overview

If it weren’t for a defeat in Belarus 1-2, the Bulgarians would be in an excellent position in these qualifications. Now, with 3 wins and losses apiece, they are in a must win position. With 9 points, Bulgaria is in the fourth place with one point behind Netherlands and 4 points behind the leaders France and Sweden. The game against the Scandinavians marks the start of a tough period for Petar Hubchev’s team because they are about to play with all the teams who are in front of them in the standings. Bulgaria plays high efficient games, and 6 of the 8 previous ended with 3 or more goals. Also, they are very confident at home, and they won 4 most recent encounters. In those meetings, the hosts have kept clean sheets on 3 occasions. In 3 games during that span, the Bulgarians scored 2 or more goals.

Sweden overview

After Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to retire, everybody had an opinion that the Blagult are going to struggle. The totally opposite thing has happened. Sweden is playing quite solid, and they are at the top of the group with France. After 6 games, they have 4 victories and one draw and a loss against France in Paris. However, they got even with them, and now they have to maintain the pace with the Gauls. Three points in Bulgaria would be perfect especially because France has a tough game with the Netherlands. Sweden currently has 5 games in a row without a loss, and 5 from the most recent 6 encounters have ended with over 2.5 goals. Also, there is one unpleasant fact. The defense has allowed at least a goal in 3 straight meetings. Celta Vigo star, Joh Guidetti will be unavailable for this match because of an injury.

Head to head matches

Throughout history, the guests have a much better record. Sweden was better in 9 games, Bulgaria in 2 and the same number of games ended with a draw. Also, Sweden has a better goal difference, 25-6.
In the previous 7 head-to-head encounters, Blagult kept clean sheets in each game! In all of those games, they were victorious and netted 20 times.
The reverse leg in Sweden finished with a commanding presence from the hosts, 3-0.

Prediction for Bulgaria vs. Sweden tip

Our first suggestion would be over 2.5 goals, because both teams play aggressively. For the second pick, we chose both teams to score. After 24 years we think that, finally, the time has come for the Bulgarians to score. They are in good shape, and on the other hand, regarding Swedish strikers, we do not doubt that they will be efficient.
