Russia vs Bulgaria: Predictions and Betting Tips
The level of the Russians has risen considerably in the last three years, as we saw at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, although it is true that playing in your own country helps a lot. However, the level of the Russian domestic league has also improved a lot, which has a positive effect on the national team as well.
However, the Russians need to improve defensively, as this is their biggest problem. While in attack they are a good team, having Dzyuba in attack helps a lot.
The decline of Bulgarian football is not likely to disappear in the short term, as it is a team that has neither a collective level nor any above-average players. Since Berbatov, the legendary Manchester United player, the Bulgarians have lacked a star player.
The Bulgarians finished last in their Nations League group and were relegated to League C. In the World Cup qualifiers they have lost two matches and drawn one.
- Russia have conceded at least one goal in their last five games
- Four of the last five games of Russia have ended with over 2.5 total match goals
- Two defeats, two wins and one draw for Russia in their last five games
- Eleven consecutive away matches without winning for Bulgaria
- Bulgaria have only scored six goals in their last ten matches
Russia vs Bulgaria Predictions
We see the Russians as clear favourites to win this match, apart from the fact that they are playing at home and with their fans, the Bulgarians have eleven consecutive matches without a win away from home, and scoring goals is a very difficult task for a team that lacks the collective and individual level.
As far as goals are concerned, we think it could be a match with a big score for the Russians while the Bulgarians could end the match without scoring a single goal.
