After an impressive victory over Sweden 3: 2 on Friday, Bulgaria hosts the Netherlands in a world qualification of Group A of the Europe Zone. The duel is this evening at 7:00 pm at the Amsterdam Arena.
The Netherlands suffered a heavy loss of 0: 4 as a guest on France on Friday night and was thus offset from third place in the group from Bulgaria. The Dutch have poor qualifications and are about to miss a big international forum for the second time since they failed to qualify for Euro 2016. The tulips have a 10-point asset, while Bulgaria has 12 points and the second Sweden with 13 points, while France already has 16 points in the first place.
The Dutch team recorded two wins and one loss in their own field in their World Cup matches. They stepped on France with 0: 1, and their victories were against Luxembourg and Belarus. It is difficult to determine the state of the "tulips" on our own terrain, but it still looks better than the guest. The low ground team lost to Sofia with 0: 2 and will now try to take revenge for this defeat, but the Bulgarian team will be very confident after the strong match against Sweden and will try to surprise again.
Bulgaria hopes in this game to end the bad series as a guest. So far, our national team has made three losses in three games, the worst defeat being the 1: 2 defeat from Belarus in June. If Petar Hubchev's alumni had won this match, they would have very good chances to win the World Cup. Previously, the team lost 1: 4 from France and Sweden from 0: 3.
The Netherlands, however, is not in the best shape and we have already defeated them at Vassil Levski. We expect the Bulgarian team to use their chances of counter-attack and score a goal, and also the hosts should write to their own audience.
