Bulgaria is welcoming Hungary to National Stadio Vasil Levski in the semifinals of the Euro Cup Qualification Playoffs.
Bulgaria is in terrible form, and they have won only 1 of their last 16 games, but they haven’t won any of their last 3 games. In the Nations League, Bulgari has tied against Ireland, while losing to Wales on the road. Bulgaria has had 50% of ball possession in that game, 0 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 0 big chances created, and 87% of the correct passes. Bulgaria has done absolutely nothing in the attacking end in this game, and they ended up losing this match 1-0. Bozhikov is the leading goalscorer for Bulgaria in the Euro Cup qualifications with only 2 goals, but Bulgaria has scored only 6 goals in said qualifications. There are no reported injuries in Bulgaria as of right now. It has been a while since Bulgaria has played good soccer, and their national team is a disaster, and they are not improving. The big part of the problem is that the Bulgarian soccer league is weak, and it’s not producing young talented players that could carry the national team in the future, and because of that, I don’t think Bulgaria will go to the Euro Cup next year.
Hungary has a good amount of talent in their team, but they lack consistency. Hungary has won only 2 of their last 8 games, but they have been solid in the Nations League with 3 scored goals and 2 conceded goals in their last two games. Hungary has beaten Turkey on the road, but they ended up losing to Russia at home. Hungary was the better team in that match with 59% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. Hungary has made a lot of mistakes on the defensive end in this match, and they were losing 0-3 in the 46th minute of the game. Hungary was able to score a couple of goals until the end of the match, but they ended up losing this game 2-3. Patkai and Orban have each scored 2 goals for Hungary in these qualifications. Hungary is coming into these qualification playoffs with their strongest lineup, and I think they have a solid chance of qualifying for the Euro Cup, but Hungary will need to get better on the defensive end. There are no reported injuries in Hungary as of right now, which means we can expect their best players on the pitch.
The trends are mixed here, and the away team has never won a game in this matchup. Hungary is the better team here, but I think Bulgaria could defend well here because a lot is at stake. I will give this a shot at a draw.
