Our Prediction:

Bulgaria will win

Bulgaria – Romania Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 11:15

Bulgaria kicked off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw with Montenegro, with the team sharing the spoils with self-proclaimed Kosovo in their second group game as well. The Bulgarians, though, suffered a loss to Czech Republic on Friday evening and, as a result, they face a must-win situation against self-proclaimed Kosovo. Krasimir Balakovs troops are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Mondays football game, but beating Bernard Challandes charges is easier said than done.

Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is on the cards. When the two teams met in Pristina earlier in the process they played out a 1-1 draw and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. The visitors proved their worth in a 1-1 draw with Montenegro and we are positive that they are going to hold Bulgaria to a draw as well.

Malta vs Romania Prediction

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. 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 Bulgarians defeated Germany in the quarter-finals, but Italy proved to be a big catch for Dimitar Penevs team. Bulgaria eventually suffered a heavy loss to Sweden in the third-place playoffs.

The Boys in Green have been producing fine performances in the qualifiers and, as a result, they are on the right track to book their place at the next years showpiece tournament. After sharing the spoils with Switzerland in their Euro 2020 qualifying match, Republic of Ireland will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Bulgaria at their Aviva Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Republic of Ireland coach Mick McCarthy is likely to use upcoming friendly to rest key players, therefore, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Bulgaria, on the other hand, who have yet to record a win in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, are determined to grab something from Tuesdays friendly. A close encounter is on the cards in Dublin and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in their first meeting since 2009.

Despite not exactly boasting an enviable goalscoring record for a centre forward, Long was always held in high regard by both managers and his peers, with his incredible work rate and never-say-die attitude winning him plenty of admirers. Long will also go down as one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the Republic of Ireland national team, which he represented at the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 finals.

The Kosovo national football team played their first ever international friendly against Haiti in March 2014 and the match ended in a goalless draw. Albert Bunjakis men have slim chances of qualifying for the showpiece tournament in Russia, but, no doubt, they will use qualifying matches to gain a much-needed experience. Kosovo recorded their biggest win over Monaco on April 22, 2006, but they were not a member of FIFA back then.

When the two teams met in Pristina earlier in the process they played out a 1-1 draw and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is on the cards.
