Belarus vs Bulgaria Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Bulgaria goal World Cup

Belarus v Bulgaria predictions and betting tips for Friday’s World Cup Qualifier at the Borisov Arena. Read below to see our free predictions and betting tips for this fixture.


On Friday afternoon, a Bulgarian side who’re hoping to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1994 travel to take on Belarus in Borisov. Of this pair, it is only the Bulgarians who, at the mid-way point in this qualification group, have realistic hopes of making the cut. Having said this, their recent lack of firepower on the road could prove costly and certainly doesn’t inspire much confidence ahead what could be a tricky game.


Belarus vs Bulgaria Predictions


What’s glaringly obvious ahead of this fixture is that these two have been struggling in front of goal in their respective home and away fixtures of late. Belarus have managed to find the net just three times in their last five at home, failing to score in three of those, while Bulgaria too look a little light up top. Petar Hubchev’s side, despite scoring five in their last five on the road, have failed to score twice during that time and have managed just one in their last three on the road. With the pair failing to really fire, it would be no surprise if this match saw few goals go in. At odds of 2/1 with Marathon Bet, ‘Under 1.5 Goals’ looks a decent bet for our first Belarus vs Bulgaria prediction in this World Cup 2018 qualifier.


It’s also worth noting that, for all their impotence in the final third, Belarus are actually fairly useful at the back on their own patch and have conceded just two goals in their last five home matches. Such defensive nous from the hosts further enhances the chances of this one being something of a low-key affair in terms of goals. When these two faced each other in the reverse fixture back in late 2016, a serious goal threat from either team was severely lacking and, unsurprisingly, the match saw just the one goal go in.


From a correct score point of view, a match that doesn’t exactly scream goals is hardly the most interesting but with goals expected to be in short supply, a punt on a 0-0 score-line, at 7/1 with Bet Victor, is also worth a go and that’s our second Belarus vs Bulgaria betting tip.
