World Cup 2014 — 06 September 2013

Italy Bulgaria World Cup QualifierToday at 20.45 local time Italy will be facing Bulgaria in a Group B World Cup qualification match. This is an important match for both sides as the group matches are soon coming to an end and none of them have achieved qualification yet. Italy are currently leading the group with 14 points, 4 points clear off second placed Bulgaria. Italy need to win today to solidify their position and to nearly guarantee the top spot of the group. On the other hand Bulgaria need to win both to close their gap from Italy but also to stay second in the group as Czech Republic are just a match away from them.

Italy are clear favorites to win but as what happened in the previous encounter between these two sides, every match has its own story. In the last match between them, Italy and Bulgaria ended in a 2-2 draw even though Italy were clear favorites to win the match. Both sides haven’t lost a match yet as Italy drew two matches whilst Bulgaria drew four. At Football Cosmos, we believe that today’s match will be a balanced one with lack of goal scoring opportunities. Our prediction is that the match will end 1-1.

Football Cosmos Prediction: Italy 1 Bulgaria 1
