Match Preview

After opening the scoring in their last two Euro qualification games (ECQ), but picking up just one point, Bulgaria will be desperate to get their first victory of the campaign as they take on Kosovo, although an active six-game winless run won’t inspire home fans (D4, L2).
The Bulgarians’ last five matches have now seen both teams score, with four finishing all-square at 1-1. Yet both teams scored in just three of their last 12 ECQ home fixtures, with only three of those 12 featuring over 2.5 goals. That, coupled with the fact that the last time Bulgaria scored more than twice in a home match was a 3-2 victory over Sweden in August 2017 – which was also the last time they conceded more than one goal in a home match – sets this up as a potentially low-scoring affair.
Kosovo’s 1-1 draw with Montenegro extended their record breaking unbeaten streak to 13 games (W8, D5), a run that has seen them score an average of 2.23 goals per fixture, whilst conceding just 0.69.
However, in the six total away tournament qualifiers (ECQ/WCQ) that Kosovo have played since joining FIFA, they lost four (D2, L4). All four were ‘to nil’, with the Kosovans losing 1-0 at half-time in two.
Players to watch: Captain Ivelin Popov provided the assist last time out and is the top scorer in the Bulgaria squad with 14 goals – twelve were as his nation’s first goalscorer.
Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica (KOS) netted the opener against Montenegro – two of his three international goals have been the match opener.
Stat attack: Of the match goals in Bulgaria’s last four home matches, 87.5% arrived after half-time.
There’s been at least three yellow cards in each of Kosovo’s last five competitive games.
Six of Kosovo’s last seven wins came ‘to nil’.
