Match Preview

  • Seeking just their second win since October 2018 (W1, D6, L9), Bulgaria have seen 11 of their last 16 matches produce under 2.5 total match goals, including the last five. Furthermore, five of Bulgaria’s last ten games won/lost have come with a 1-0 scoreline, whilst four such winning goals arrived at or before the hour mark.
  • Bulgaria have also won just twice in their last 13 European Championship qualification (ECQ) home matches (W2, D4, L7) whilst only four witnessed goals at both ends. By extension, the team scoring first hasn’t lost in Bulgaria’s last 15 home ECQ matches (W11, D4) since the last such instance in June 2007.
  • Hungary haven’t drawn since October 2018 (W7, L7 hence). Eight of those results saw the winner keep a clean sheet, with 2-0 the result in four matches. Similarly, each of Hungary’s last 12 ECQ fixtures have produced a winner (W7, L5) with exactly half (six) of the results witnessing a clean sheet.
  • Travelling here on the back of their longest winless H2H streak (D2, L2), the visitors struggle on the road, as their recent record (W2, D2, L6) away from home indicates. Hungary have lost four of their last six ECQ away fixtures (W2, L4), including three losses ‘to nil’.
  • Players to watch: Bozhidar Kraev has been Bulgaria’s only scorer in his last two goalscoring matches, with all three goals arriving before the 60th minute.
  • Ádám Szalai has been Hungary’s first scorer in each of his last three goalscoring ECQ games.
  • Hot stat: The team scoring first hasn’t lost in any of Hungary’s last 32 ECQ away matches to produce a goal (W26, D6).
