Bulgaria go up against Gibraltar on Friday in a game played out at Huvepharma Arena. Tension is heating up as we have reached the penultimate round of the UEFA Nations League group stage.

Bulgaria and Gibraltar had to settle for a point each in their most recent match, which finished with a 1-1 scoreline. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 12.00.

Home side Bulgaria enter this next international as number 74 in the FIFA world ranking. With the visitors from Gibraltar sitting as number 200, we have a rather big gap between the countries.

Bulgaria scored ten goals, conceded 20 and fought their way to one clean sheet in their previous ten matches.

Gibraltar scored two goals, conceded 29 and kept their opponents from scoring two times in ten matches.

Bulgaria vs Gibraltar Prediction

It could have been better, it could have been worse for Bulgaria, who have two points to show from their last three matches. They came up short in a 2-5 defeat against Georgia, followed by a 1-1 draw against Gibraltar. They picked up a point again in the latest round after a 0-0 draw with Georgia. Bulgaria show off three home wins from their previous six outings at home, while drawing one. They also lost two and scored ten while conceding ten times.

Gibraltar only managed to gain a single point in their past three games, which kicked off with a 0-2 defeat against North Macedonia. A 1-1 draw with Bulgaria followed, before North Macedonia ran out 4-0 winners. Gibraltar didn't manage a single away win in their last six matches, but managed zero draws, while suffering six defeats. They conceded 28 and scored two goals themselves.

The initial four rounds of the UEFA Nations League saw Bulgaria picking up three points. Dropping points again would probably mean they are done and dusted before the final round.
