Tip Reasoning

  • Russia have won eight of their last 13 home internationals (D3, L2).
  • Bulgaria have won just one of their last 20 away starts (D7, L12).
  • The visitors have failed to score in five of their last six away matches, with all of those games producing under 2.5 goals.

Bulgaria to draw another blank on their travels

Russia have been generally consistent on their own turf throughout the last couple of years and Stanislav Cherchesov’s side are tipped to edge out poor travellers Bulgaria in Moscow this weekend.

This is Russia’s final warm-up game before Euro 2020, where they’re pitched into a mightily tough group containing Belgium and Denmark. They earned a decent 1-1 draw in Poland on Tuesday and will want to build further confidence here ahead of their opener against the Belgians on Saturday week.

Only Belgium and Sweden have beaten Russia on their own soil since March 2018 (W8, D3, L2), so it’s easy to see why Cherchesov’s side are around 2/5 for victory in this clash, with Bulgaria winning just one of their last 20 away trips (D7, L12).

The visitors have held out for draws on their last three travelling assignments, but they’ve lost on both previous visits to Moscow. We envisage the same outcome here, and we’re backing Russia to triumph without conceding a goal.

While Bulgaria set themselves up to be hard to beat, they fall woefully short in attack and have managed just one goal in their last half dozen away matches. A win to nil offers punters a much better price than simply siding with the hosts in the match betting and we’re also tipping up a 1-0 correct score.
