This Saturday will be another day of qualifying for the European Championship final which will take place next year.
On the first day of the weekend teams will be continued in the framework of the 5th round of the qualifying tournament, and one of the first Saturday matches will be a match between the national teams of England and Bulgaria, which are involved in the group A.
- The coefficients and forecast
The English team took first place in the standings of group A, despite the fact that played in the qualifying for just a couple of games due to the fact that I was busy in the playoffs of the League of Nations, which took place in the first half of June, as the previous couple rounds of the qualifying tournament of Euro-2020.
In September, England will again play in both matches and will take part only in the 5th round. His British team starts with the maximum 6 points in the standings and a big difference of scored and missed goals: +9, with 10 goals scored and one conceded.
These results are not a consequence of one successful match, as happens with other teams in qualifying for the European Championship — the British scored 5 goals against the Czech national team, and Montenegrin. After winning streak of 7 matches, however, the three lions never beat them in regulation time.
A team from the British Islands took first place in the group division A of the League of Nations, therefore, took place in the playoffs of the tournament, but in the semifinals lost to the Netherlands with the score 3:1 (1:1 in regular time, 2:0 in extra). But in the match for the 3rd place team after a goalless draw with Switzerland won on penalties 5:6.
As a result, in 5 games before the playoffs of the League of Nations with the participation of the English national team haven’t scored less than 3 goals in 2 of meetings — just the same in England — played the home team.
The team from South-Eastern Europe will start 5th round of qualifying in last place in the standings with for the previous 4 games only 2 points due to the fact that Montenegro and Kosovo on the road she played a draw with the score 1:1.
Bulgaria is definitely not considered a favorite to win neither in Albion nor the final part of the Euro, and with goal difference +9 -2 against the odds for the guests, it seems that they can finish the 5th round with the defeat.
Moreover, in the previous 7 games, the lions have not won a single victory in each of them and another one before that missed. However, in the last 6 games with the Bulgarians scored both teams, so it’s not the fact that the British will hold the next home match without conceding goals.
But if the majority of the last matches of England ended with lots of goals, in 5 of the previous 7 fights, Bulgaria was less than 3 goals.
The coefficients and forecast
Bookmakers odds alluding to the fact that guests this Saturday victory does not Shine:
1.07–1.10: victory of the England team;
27-39: the victory of the national team of Bulgaria.
Bulgarian national team — definitely not a competitor to English, but the odds of winning such that it appears that the guests will not be able to score even one goal. In such cases, often is a bet on the opposite.
