Can Bulgaria finish the job with a victory over Slovenia? Those two results show how evenly matched both Bulgaria and Norway are, but they will be hunting for a decisive win on Monday night to get some space at the top. As things stand, the hosts are in second place, only narrowly off the pace. Bulgaria and Norway are locked in a battle to win Group C3, and the pair are each hunting final day wins to seal top spot. They have identical points totals, and matching head to head records following a 1-0 home win each.

They did not play in the summer, having beaten Kazakhstan 2-1 in Hungary in March, but won their first three UEFA Nations League matches Bozhidar Kraev scored both goals in a 2-1 defeat of Slovenia, Radoslav Vasilev scored the only goal at home to Norway and Kiril Despodov and Todor Nedelev helped Bulgaria come from behind at home to Cyprus before their winning streak ended with a 1-0 loss in Oslo. Bulgaria were on a four-match winning streak before their defeat to Norway in Oslo last month.

Match Schedule

Slovenia and Bulgaria went head to head only twice before with Bulgaria winning the first match and Slovenia their second encounter. Slovenia beat Montenegro 2:0 away and Bulgaria beat Kazakhstan at home 2:1. Its a tough call so we think they will play out a draw. The game at Stoice, Ljubljana is set to be a real tactical battle as both coaches know whats at stake and that the League of Nations gives them a better probability of reaching the Euro 2020 since they will still get to play the Euro qualifiers separate from the League of Nations. Neither Slovenia nor Bulgaria have had great results in international football in the past year, confirming their absence from the 2018 World Cup. In their last six matches, both teams have two wins, one draw and three defeats. However, both teams can go into this match with some confidence as they both won their last match.

The Bulgarians are level on points with top-placed Norway, meaning that they do not have destiny in their own hands. 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. 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. When the two teams met in Ljubljana in September Bulgaria defeated Slovenia 2-1. 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. Bulgaria will be looking to regain top position in League C Group 3 with a win over Slovenia at Stadion Vasil Levski in Sofia.

Victory in their most recent friendly against Montenegro was Slovenias first in five games as they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup and then lost back-to-back friendlies afterwards. Slovenia then lost 3-0 to Austria and 2-0 to Belarus but bounced back with a 2-0 defeat of Montenegro last time out Bezjak and Miha Zajc scoring the goals. A 1-0 defeat to England and 2-2 draw with Scotland ended their hopes of reaching Russia despite Roman Bezjaks double against the latter.
