  • Competition: UEFA Nations League

  • Venue: Huvepharma Arena (Razgrad)

The Bulgarians were disastrous in the previous cycle of the UEFA Nations League, collecting just two points from six rounds, which means they were forced to move to Division C. However, The Lions will want to forget this year's edition of the UEFA Nations League as soon as possible, as they were a huge disappointment, collecting just three points from four games played. Meanwhile, Gibraltar's results from this year's UEFA Nations League cycle are not surprising, since it is known that this national team is composed of amateurs. Namely, Los Llanis made a big sensation in this cycle, when they took a point against Bulgaria, in a 1-1 draw, which was their only point so far.

Bulgaria vs Gibraltar Betting Tips: BTTS - NO

It will be the third meeting between these national teams. Bulgaria secured a routine 3-0 win in their friendly clash from 2020. However, the Bulgarians have struggled with form in recent years, and a 1-1 draw with Gibraltar in the first leg of this year's edition of the UEFA Nations League is the best indication that The Lions are in a huge crisis of results. It would be very bad if the Bulgarians finish this competition in the group without a single triumph, and they will have an ideal opportunity for that on Friday.

The Bulgarians, led by the new coach Mladen Krstajic, will try to start a new life in the best possible way, and they will not have a better opportunity to return to the winning course than this Friday. The Bulgarians have only one goal, and that is to avoid the last place in the group, because relegation to the weakest division of the UEFA Nations League would be a huge disappointment. What's not good for Gibraltar is just one goal scored in their last five away games, while the defense has conceded an incredible 25 goals in that time. The difference in quality is clear, and anything but the routine triumph of the home team will be a shocking result. The Bulgarians will want to prove themselves to the new coach and we expect a clear victory.

Bulgaria Team News

Newly appointed coach Mladen Krstajic will make his debut on Friday, and we can notice that his list is made up of young players, some of whom received a call-up for the first time.

Krstajic's list includes as many as 7 debutants, including Nikola Iliev, who is a member of Inter Milan, so the starting XI will look very different from previous matches.

Meanwhile, Gibraltar arrived in Razgrad without an important striker - Tjay De Barr, who failed to return in time due to injury, and his fitness is also questionable.

Uruguay manager Julio Ribas has called up 27 players for the upcoming UEFA Nations League matches, including Liam Walker, who scored the equalizer against Bulgaria.
