France failed to beat Belarus away in the first match of the qualification for the World Cup 2018, so they want to take all three points against Bulgaria upfront their supporters. Home national played very good at Borisov Arena and they’ve created many good chances, had 10 shots on goal, but they didn’t have lucky, so the match was finished without goals. France is one of the main candidate to win the first place in Group A, along Netherlands, so the match against Bulgaria is very important for them and everyone expect victory. Except Belarus, Bulgaria and Netherlands in this group is also Sweden, so home side have to start collecting points, especially against weaker national teams, if they want to secure the first position and qualify directly on World Cup 2018.




Bulgaria took three important points against Luxembourg beating them at home 4-3. They didn’t shine on that match, even visitors had a lead in some moments, but Bulgaria have managed to beat score in the last minutes and win that game. Against France they know that they are underdogs and every result except home win would be a big surprise. Visitors showed in the first round that they have very shaky defence. If you concede 3 goals upfront your own supporters against one of the worst national teams in Europe, it’s very bad. It’s quite disturbing, actually. However, Bulgaria have nothing to lose and they will play the best they can in order to hit the net, at least. France is much better and I don’t give a chance to visitors on this game. Meanwhile, Bulgarian coach Ivaylo Petev resigned and Petar Hubchev has been appointed as a new national team head coach.

Home side miss Giroud, but the good news are that Lloris and Sagna are both back in the squad after they missed the first game against Belarus. On the other side, visitors will be without defender Ivanov.
