Bulgaria vs France – 2018 World Cup Qualification: This Saturday night, in Sofia, Bulgaria will host the French National team…
In a match counting towards the penultimate round of Group A of this 2018 World Cup’s qualification stage.
Bulgaria still has some chances (although they don’t have much) of qualifying to Russia, currently sitting in 4th place with 12 points, 4 points behind France, who is leading this group A.
And I say they still have some chances to qualify because they will face precisely the French in this round, having then to face limited Luxembourg away from home on the last round.
Therefore, an excellent result here, which would be a win, would strongly increase their chances of attending the World Cup.
What I feel that is more important to highlight on this team is their home record, since they have 100% win rate on the 4 matches they played in front of their fans.
France, as I’ve said before, are naturally leading this Group A with 17 points. They are currently one of the best National teams in Europe, since they have a fantastic set of players in every position.
On their last match, they hosted Luxembourg at home and were unable to penetrate their defence, which resulted in a goalless draw after 90 minutes.
However, they had ton of chances, which means that, after that embarrassing result, the French, with their offensive firepower, can’t go two matches in a row wasting so many chances.
Bulgaria vs France – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I look into this match and I see two teams who score goals relatively easily, including the Bulgarian who have a ridiculous average of 3.8 goals scored/match.
Therefore, the hosts, needing to win in order to still dream of qualifying, will certainly give more space to Griezmann, Mbappé and the rest of the French squad.
