Slovenia – Bulgaria Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 14:30

Luka Zahovic Son of national hero Zlatko, the Maribor striker was top scorer in last seasons PrvaLiga as he hammered in 18 goals all in the latter half of the campaign.Bojan Jokic The most experienced player left in the squad, the Ufa defender has won 90 caps for Slovenia.Tim Matavz Long overdue another international goal, but he scored 17 times in 41 games at club level for Vitesse Arnhem last season and already has four in eight this year.

Petar Hubchev uses a very interesting 3-4-2-1 formation which obviously suits Bulgarians who did not concede two or more goals in any of last nine games in all competitions. They were on a thread of four consecutive victories before falling narrowly 1-0 away against Norway a month ago. The Lions picked up three wins in opening four outings.

They lost four of five trips in the World Cup qualifiers, while they were beaten in three of their last four in the race for Euro 2016, only picking up points at minnows Malta. However, their big issue is producing results on the road, having lost six of their last seven matches away from home. The visitors finished a distant fourth in back to back qualifying campaigns, so the Nations League is great news for them.

The Bulgarians defeated Germany in the quarter-finals, but Italy proved to be a big catch for Dimitar Penevs team. Nowadays, Bulgaria struggle in qualifiers for major tournaments and it has to be noted that they have not participated at the finals since 1994. The likes of Trifon Ivanov, Krasimir Balakov and Yordan Letchkov enjoyed a very successful tournament as well and, no doubt, they recorded a historical result at the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Bulgaria eventually suffered a heavy loss to Sweden in the third-place playoffs.

However, seeing that Bulgaria have been impressive at home ground in the process, we predict that the Zmajceki are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Sofia. Slovenia, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Norway in their last group game, meaning that they are still eyeing their first win in the UEFA Nations League. The Bulgarians are level on points with top-placed Norway, meaning that they do not have destiny in their own hands. When the two teams met in Ljubljana in September Bulgaria defeated Slovenia 2-1. Bulgaria will be looking to regain top position in League C Group 3 with a win over Slovenia at Stadion Vasil Levski in Sofia. Anyhow, Petar Hubchevs men, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home, are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Mondays football game.
