Bulgaria vs Wales: Visitors to nick narrow win

Bulgaria vs Wales: Visitors to nick narrow win

Kick-off: 1945, 14/10/2020

Stadium: Vasil Levski National Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Wales dropped points for the first time at the weekend but are top of their Nations League group ahead of the trip to Bulgaria.

Ryan Giggs’ men had to settle for a goalless draw against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin but lead the way in Group H with seven points from their first three fixtures.

Bulgaria are bottom with just one point and an away win at 21/20 is a confident pick as our opening Bulgaria vs Wales prediction.

A Look At Bulgaria’s Betting Odds

Bulgaria began their campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to the Republic of Ireland when they were denied victory by Shane Duffy’s injury-time header.

More late heartbreak followed in Cardiff in September when they again conceded deep into stoppage time as Liverpool teenager Neco Williams came off the bench to snatch a winner for Wales.

Bulgaria went down to a 2-0 defeat in Finland on Sunday, conceding both goals in the second half after another goalless first half.

There have been no goals in the first half in six of their last eight matches so 0-0 at the break appeals at 5/4 in the Bulgaria vs Wales odds.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

The Dublin stalemate was a satisfactory result for Wales – as well as backers of our three winning tips – although Giggs may have felt the opportunity was there for his side to grab all three points.

Ireland lost five more players on the eve of Sunday’s game as a result of Covid-19 protocols after one unnamed member of the squad had tested positive.

They also had to play £15million Tottenham full-back Matt Doherty in central defence for more than an hour and were only able to name seven substitutes, including two goalkeepers.

Wales were at least boosted by the return of Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey to the starting line-up and Giggs said: “There were a few times when we did come out with the ball, we put a few passes together – Aaron was the one who looked dangerous and looked like he could unlock the key.

“But whether it was good pressing from Ireland or just a wrong decision or a little bit careless with that first touch or final pass, it just seemed to break down. But Aaron looked at times the one who was going to make the difference.”

Wales look to have the edge in terms of attacking quality despite striker Kieffer Moore being suspended following his second booking of the competition.

The last four meetings between these two teams have been settled by a single goal, so we’re backing the visitors to grab another 1-0 win at 5/1 as the last of our Bulgaria vs Wales betting tips.
