Albania vs Bulgaria: top free betting tips
On the back of a winning sequence in Euro Qualifiers, Albania takes on Bulgaria in the friendly game on Tuesday, 17 October. The Lions enter Air Albania Stadium after conceding back-to-back defeats in Euro Qualifiers.
Match result prediction: Albania to win
Bulgaria have gone undefeated in their last five meetings with Albania and won two of them. However, the Lions were without a win in the previous eight matches and they lost the last three games in a row. On the other hand, Albania has found four victories in their last five games while ending one in a draw. The Eagles also with the home advantage where they won the previous four fixtures consecutively. Therefore, we set Albania as our favourites to have the upper hand in this encounter.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Albania remained goalless in three of their last four meetings with Bulgaria. But the Eagles have been incredible on their offensive end recently by scoring in the last five consecutive matches. Meanwhile, the Lions have seemed in trouble, failing to score in two of the recent three games. On the other hand, Albania has also been at their best defensively at Air Albania Stadium by keeping four successive clean sheets previously. Hence, we predict only the Eagles to be strong enough to rattle the net in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Albania
Albania has been unable to find the back of the net more than once in any of the last five H2Hs against Bulgaria. But the Lions have hit that mark in each of their previous four matches at Air Albania Stadium. On the other hand, Bulgaria has also allowed two goals at the back in their previous two consecutive fixtures. Given the current scenario, we predict a 2-0 lead for Albania before the referee blows the full-time whistle.

Ardian Ismajli and Armando Broja will miss out on the upcoming friendly fixture due to injuries.
Bulgaria welcomed Lithuania in the previous Euro Qualifiers fixture and lost all three points with a 0-2 defeat.
