England vs Bulgaria
Competition – Euro 2020 Qualifying
Stadium – Wembley
Date: 7th September 2019
Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT
England will be looking to continue their excellent head-to-head record against Bulgaria when both sides meet at Wembley here. The Three Lions return from the Euro Nations League to continue where they stopped in the Euro 2020 qualifiers and their fans would be keen on them winning here.
England has a solid recent record against their visitors. The last two times these sides have met, the Three Lions have won by 7 goals scored and conceded 0.
These sides have met 10 times before now – England has 6 wins and no losses, while the Bulgarians have only scored twice in those games and each time they scored they also managed to draw the game 1-1.
England would be looking to end their long wait to win an international trophy in the next Euros and they have started their qualifications well as they come here having drubbed both Montenegro and Czech Republic in their opening two games.
Bulgaria comes here struggling for form and with a new manager in charge. The hope is that Krasimir Balakov has settled in well enough to begin to make his mark in these qualifiers.
A win would be just enough to keep England on course to reach the finals next year and oddsmakers expect them to secure victory in another emphatic fashion here.
Bookmakers have priced England up as extremely strong favourites to come out on top in this game while Bulgaria need a miracle based on their odds.
Goal markets point to a goal-fest as over 2.5 goals is trading long odds-on prior to kick-off while Harry Kane is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
