Tip Reasoning

Bulgaria and Norway are locked in a battle to win Group C3, and the pair are each hunting final day wins to seal top spot. As things stand, the hosts are in second place, only narrowly off the pace. They have identical points totals, and matching head to head records following a 1-0 home win each. Those two results show how evenly matched both Bulgaria and Norway are, but they will be hunting for a decisive win on Monday night to get some space at the top. Can Bulgaria finish the job with a victory over Slovenia?

The hosts missed the chance to move top on Friday, drawing 1-1 away to Cyprus. Meanwhile, Slovenia drew 1-1 with Norway, setting up a dramatic finish to this group. The pair are apart by a single goal in this group, with Norway narrowly ahead on goal difference. That could all change in this final game, especially as Norway are following Bulgaria’s visit to Cyprus. Meanwhile, the second placed side host bottom side Slovenia in this clash, which seems like a perfect opportunity to boost their push for top spot.

Slovenia are already relegated from the Nations League, and they’ll be mixing it with the likes of Andorra and Gibraltar in the next edition of the new competition. They could be pretty far apart by the time the 2020 competition rolls around, as Bulgaria could start that one in the second tier. Slovenia will be aiming to land a first win of the competition, although it won’t lift them above Cyprus. The visitors are three points shy, and their poor head to head record against Cyprus has put them down.

The visitors head here without a victory in their last five matches. They’ve lost six of their last seven, and make this trip with just two away wins in the last three years. Even worse for the away side, is that they have a torrid record against Bulgaria. They lost the reverse fixture back in September, which marked a third straight loss in meetings between these two.

Bulgaria won their last three matches at home, while they’ve won four of their last five games here. In competitive matches, the hosts have won six of their last seven at home. Their only defeat came against world champions France just over a year ago, so we see Bulgaria as the best value bet in this game. We’re backing the hosts to claim a win, as they push to win the group and make the Euro 2020 play-offs.
