The Bulgaria vs. France match will be played on Saturday, October 7, at the Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia. This is the ninth round match of World Cup qualification Europe group A. Bulgaria is currently 4th on the table with 12 points, while France is 1st on the table with 17 points at the moment.


  • In their last five qualifying games Bulgaria recorded three victories and two defeats. They defeated all opponents at home in this group so far, and they are currently in a series of five wins in Sofia. We haven't seen a draw in their last 18 games!
  • France was defeated only once in their last five games. However, they failed to beat Luxembourg in their previous home match.


These teams met 21 times so far. France recorded nine victories, Bulgaria had eight wins, while four matches ended in a draw. They played only one match in the 21st century, in the first game in this qualifying cycle France celebrated a 4:1 victory in Paris.

The perfect score at home allowed Bulgaria to stay in the race for the top two positions until the last two rounds in the competition. However, they will have to defeat France to remain in the race. In the previous round, they are traveling to Luxembourg, which is the ideal match for them to break the curse away from Sofia. With six points, Bulgaria might finish in the top two, but it is easier said than done - France is the absolute favorite in the upcoming game.

French attackers missed everything they possibly could against Luxembourg, and the situation in the group is now more complicated because of that unexpected draw. However, in the last round they will host Belarus, and everybody believes France will qualify for the World Cup as the winner of the group.

France shouldn't make the same mistake twice - we believe they will attack from the first minute of the game and secure the first place before the last round.
