Bulgaria vs. Netherlands Betting Tips and Match Preview

Bulgaria vs. Netherlands predictions for Saturday’s European World Cup 2018 qualifier clash at Vasil Levski National Stadium, Sofia

Bulgaria have been leaking goals and our tipsters think that Netherlands could edge a high-scoring World Cup Qualifier tie in Sofia on Saturday night.

Netherlands face a crucial World Cup 2018 qualifier against Bulgaria on Saturday night.

Holland have already dropped 4 points in their opening 4 WC 2018 Group A matches and, with only the winners of each section guaranteed a place at the WC 2018 in Russia, Netherlands knows that there is no room for error when they travel to face Bulgaria.

Netherlands finished 3rd in the World Cup in Brazil 3 years ago, but a disastrous Euro 2016 qualification campaign saw Netherlands come up short in their bid to make the finals in France last summer.

A 2nd consecutive unsuccessful qualification campaign is unthinkable for Netherlands and Blind's side can be backed @ 1/2 (1.50) with bet365 to get their bid to reach Russia firmly back on track by claiming a vital victory in Sofia.

Bulgaria have won both of their opening two home matches in Group A - against Luxembourg and Belarus respectively - and there are odds @ 13/2 (7.50) that Bulgaria make it a hat-trick of home victories with a defeat of Netherlands; the same bookie offers odds @ 11/4 (3.75) that the match ends in stalemate.

Bulgaria's aim of reaching WC 2018 in Russia, though, has been severely hampered by damaging defeats against France and Sweden away from home - 4-1 and 3-0 - and their lack of defensive discipline will surely give Hubchev cause for concern ahead of Netherlands' visit.

Bulgaria have shipped at least 3 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches; bet365 offer @ 9/4 (3.25) that the visitors will score more than 2 goals in this fixture, while the odds compilers offer @ 17/20 (1.85) that more than 2 goals will be scored.

Netherlands certainly have an impressive record away from home, for they have avoided defeat in each of their last 8 away from home matches. Netherlands will be hoping for more away-day delight from this encounter.

Bulgaria vs. Netherlands Stats

Bulgaria have earned a 1-2 win in their only h-2-h encounter in just under a decade, where Ilijan Mitsanski scored a 93’ winner to complete the comeback. It is hard to expect this line-up to repeat such success and Netherlands look in great shape to take revenge.

We will go for a 1-3 away win in this encounter, backing the correct score prediction at an eye-catching @ 12/1 with Bet365 and hoping to see another great display from Netherlands. 

We should be in for a thriller and Over 2.5 goals look like a banker bet @ 17/20 with bet365.


Recommended Bets:

Away win @ 8/15 with SkyBet

Over 2.5 goals @ 17/20 with Bet365

Odds @ 1/2 (1.50) for an away win are short and better value may lie in backing Netherlands to edge a goal-laden match. There have been more than 2 goals scored in 6 of Netherlands' last 7 wins, as well as in each of Bulgaria's last 5 defeats.

Odds @ 11/8 (2.38) for more than 2 goals to be scored and Netherlands to win could offer punters a solid selection ahead of Saturday's match.
