World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Bulgaria vs. Belarus is a game about ambition, ego and determination to succeed, much more than the actual 3 points put in the game.
Both teams know perfectly well that they can’t compete for any place from the top half of the group, where France, Sweden, and the Netherlands are currently sitting. What can we expect to see from this game?

Looking at Bulgaria’s recent games, we can almost surely expect to see goals. A 5-10 goal difference from 3 games (0-3 vs. Sweden, 1-4 vs France and 4-3 vs minnows Luxembourg) showed us a team which is able to attack to some extent but also concedes goals rather easily.
The Bulgarians will want to win the game, since they also play at home, and thus will attack from the first whistle, hoping to catch the Belarusian defense off guard. The fate of the game will rely heavily on the success of the Bulgarian attacks.
Meanwhile, Belarus is currently sitting on two draws, although the two games are very different from one another.
An impressive and lucky 0-0 home draw against France was the surprise of Day 1, while a 1-1 game against Luxembourg was surely very disappointing for their fans.
They also managed a 1-4 loss against the Dutch between these two draws, and will now face Bulgaria – knowing that their away game isn’t the best.
Bulgaria vs Belarus Betting Tips
That being said, we do think that the Bulgarians are slightly ahead in terms of quality, form and team chemistry – add home ground advantage to that, and we have ourselves a favorite.
A solo home win is a good bet, while Bulgaria to score is the sure bet in this case. We don’t expect lots of goals since Belarus will defend for longs periods of time, so under 3,5 goals is another idea. Good luck!
