Bulgaria Netherlands betting prediction


Preview
Bulgaria and Netherlands meet , in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe (1st Round). There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 26‑05‑2012 and ended with the final score: Netherlands (1‑2) Bulgaria. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Netherlands presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Bulgaria

After 2 wins and 2 losses, the home team is currently in the 4th position, with 6 points won. In the last match, they have won (1‑0) at home against Belarus, after in the previous round they have lost (3‑0) in an away match against Sweden. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 15 conceded. Bulgaria has won 3, tied 1 and lost 1 of the last 5 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 13 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Bulgaria side start with a 1-0 win at home against Belarus, putting an end to the two consecutive disappointments of this competition: the triumph goal was signed by Popov. Usually the coach Petar Hubchev plays in 4-4-1-1 with Delev being the most offensive reference of the away team: this player is very powerful and competent in the aerial game. Nevertheless, it is important to emphasize that the visiting team has some shortcomings in maintaining possession of the ball and finishing. For this game the coach cannot use suspended Aleksandrov, in addition to Stovanov, player recovering from injury.

Confirmed Lineup: N. Mihaylov, P. Zanev, V. Bozhikov, S. Popov, B. Chorbadzhiyski, S. Manolev, I. Popov, G. Kostadinov, S. Slavchev, A. Tonev, S. Delev.

Analysis of Netherlands

The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 7 points won, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have lost a home match agaisnt France by (0‑1). In the last round, they have won an away match against Luxembourg by (1‑3). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 27 goals scored and 21 conceded. In the last 10 away matches Netherlands has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 10 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 10 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

The Dutch team arrives at this game motivated by the victory over Luxembourg, by 1-3, thus totaling the second triumph in this qualifying round: the goals were signed by Depay (2) and Robben. In this match it is expected that Coach Danny Blind play in the usual 4-3-3 privileging the possession of the ball and the attacks paused for the attack. In addition it will be visible that the Netherlands use the corridors to create danger to the enemy: Depay is a very fast and excellent player in the transport of the ball. It is important to emphasize that the Dutch have great competence in the offensive organization and maintenance of possession of the ball. It seems that the coach does not have the injured Robben and Lens.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Zoet, M. de Ligt, R. Karsdorp, D. Blind, B. Martins Indi, D. Klaassen, K. Strootman, G. Wijnaldum, A. Robben, B. Dost, Q. Promes.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this challenge will be the victory of ''Mechanical Orange''. Despite playing away from home, Belgium will be expected to have more initiative at the meeting because of the individual quality it holds. On the other hand, the Bulgarians present great weaknesses in the style of game and for this reason they must act of defensive form. Having said this and taking into account these differences, betting in favor of Holland in this game, even outside doors, is of great value. This betting suggestion has expired...
