Sweden will be aiming to stay top of Group A on Thursday night as they hit the road to visit Bulgaria. This could be a pretty big qualification night for Sweden on the same night that France and the Netherlands showdown in the group. Can Sweden get the win that they need to stay top of the pile? They will be facing off against a Bulgarian side who could really need the win to stay in touch with the qualification race.

Bulgaria vs Sweden Betting Tips

What a night this could be in Sofia for Bulgaria. The home side have to shoot for a win in this one because that would blow the qualification race in the group wide open with three to play. A home win here sees Bulgaria move to just one point back of Sweden, who start this round of matches top of the group. So the importance of this home game for Bulgaria is crucial. There is reason enough for them to be optimistic as well having beaten the Netherlands 2-0 in their last home game. That was a massive win for them to keep their qualification hopes alive and along with wins over Belarus and Luxembourg, they have delivered on home soil. Bulgaria have two clean sheets in three home games in qualification. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 4/7. Bulgaria have scored in just one of their last eleven games against Sweden now and a Draw/Sweden half time/full time bet at bet365 fetches a price of 10/3. Their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option is Ivelin Popov at a 13/5 quote for the game.

So a big night for Bulgaria to pull themselves well in into the qualification mix and a big night for Sweden too. Sweden are top of the group and they would, of course, like to stay there and hold that advantage with three games to play after this one. They landed a dramatic injury time win over France last time out and have to build on that, especially at night when France are playing the Netherlands and anything could happen there. The Swedes have to take care of their own business and build on their W 4 D1 L1 record so far in their campaign. The Swedes have averaged two goals per game in their six games during qualification so far and this will be just their third away game of the campaign. The only narrowly edged a 1-0 win in Luxembourg and then lost 2-1 out in Paris against France, so it hasn’t been great away form. But they did crush Bulgaria 3-0 in Solna when they met earlier in the group and that continues strong form they have against them.

Sweden have won each of their last three games against Bulgaria 3-0 and therefore you have a price of 12/1 on a Sweden 3-0 in the bet365 correct score market. In the bet365 correct score market, a Sweden 1-0 result returns a 9/2 price and that is the shortest priced option in the market with the 1-1 draw next at 11/2. The Swedes have big form going against Bulgaria, with a tremendous seven match winning streak currently going against them. Each of those seven wins were with a clean sheet as well. Sweden to win to nil at bet356 is trading at a price of 13/8 which is looking some value because of all of that. Sweden’s Emil Forsberg is their top scorer in qualification with three goals and he is a price of 11/4 in the anytime goalscorer market with Marcus Berg favourite at 8/5 followed by Ola Toivonen at 2/1.
