Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Hungary will look to cement top position in Group G when they take on Bulgaria at Stadion Hristo Botev on Thursday afternoon. The Hungarians have chance to finish their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign above star-studded Serbia and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Dominik Szoboszlai, who played all 90 minutes for Liverpool in a 3-0 win over Brentford at the weekend.
The Bulgarians, on the other hand, have not been competitive in this group and they have yet to record a win in the process. Hungary are more of a team than Bulgaria and we predict that the visitors are going to showcase their worth on the field. To make things even worse for the home side, Andrian Kraev is banned for the match following his sending-off in a 2-0 loss to Lithuania.
Highlighted Team (Bulgaria):
Bulgaria national football team are well known for their “Golden generation” of players led by Hristo Stoichkov. The Bulgarian football legend was producing thrilling performances for the national team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in USA and he helped the Lions make it to the semi-finals of the tournament.
The likes of Trifon Ivanov, Krasimir Balakov and Yordan Letchkov enjoyed a very successful tournament as well and, no doubt, they recorded a historical result at the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The Bulgarians defeated Germany in the quarter-finals, but Italy proved to be a big catch for Dimitar Penev’s team. Bulgaria eventually suffered a heavy loss to Sweden in the third-place playoffs. Nowadays, Bulgaria struggle in qualifiers for major tournaments and it has to be noted that they have not participated at the finals since 1994.
Vasil Levski National Stadium is considered Bulgaria’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 43.320. Bulgaria wear white shirts, green shorts and white socks when playing at home, whilst green and red are their second colours.
