Euro 2016 – Qualifications: Bulgaria vs Norway

Bulgaria vs Norway Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 7th round in Group H in qualifications for EURO 2016, Bulgaria take on Norway.

Bulgaria stand at the 4th position with two points less than Norway and this is one of the most important match for them. In the case of win, home national team would take the 3rd position which leads in play-off and be closer to the first two places. Bulgaria have only two wins after 6 played matches and both wins were against the worst two teams in Group H, Malta and Azerbaijan. They are still without win at home in these qualifications and everyone except their first win, but It won’t be an easy match against very good Norway.

Norway is in the better position and for them every result except loss would be good. For visitors the best result would be win and in that case they would make one step forward to play on European football championship next year. Their last two results in these qualifications were very poor (lost against Croatia 5-1 and goalless draw against Azerbaijan), so they hope that one of the most important matches would be good for them.

Bulgaria vs Norway injuries and suspensions

Home national team have many problems with absences on the goal line. The first first goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov (31/0 gk) and the second goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov (14/0 gk) are both out, so on the goal line will be Mitrev

Visitors miss defender Tore Reginiussen (21/2 d), while top 3 scorers: Morten Gamst Pedersen (83/17 m, top scorer), Tarik Elyounoussi (39/9 f, 2nd top scorer) and Mohammed Abdellaoue (33/7 f, 3rd top scorer) are all out. Joshua King (17/4 f) is also unavailable for this game.

Bulgaria vs Norway possible lineups

Bulgaria: Mitrev; Bandalovski, Terziev, Bodurov, Minev; Dyakov, Gadzhev; Manolev, I. Popov, Aleksandrov; Micanski.

Norway: Nyland; Elabdellaoui, Nordtveit, Forren, Linnes; Skjelbred, Tettey, Johansen; Odegaard, Henriksen; Nielsen.

Bulgaria vs Norway betting tip and predictions

Both teams are looking for win in this match, so I expect very tough match. Bulgaria have an advantage because they are playing at home, but I’m not sure that they can take all three points. I expect very tough match between Bulgaria vs Norway and less than three goals.

Bulgaria vs Norway Betting Tip: under 2.5 goals @ 1.53 (Bet365)
