Bulgaria vs Iran Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Bulgaria vs Iran is an important game for both sides ahead of their official fixtures. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
Bulgaria have been out of shape for years, literally. They have won games only against the absolute weakest national teams on the continent like Gibraltar. Against anyone else, they struggle. Lately, the results have been bad but the team at least started scoring more goals. And Iran are a national team that typically has goal packed games. We expect goals on both ends here.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We think that the most possible result in this game will be the draw. Bulgaria have been bad lately but they at least find a way not to lose with a lot. And while Iran have been quite impressive lately, their opposition has not been on a high level. Bulgaria will try to get a positive result ahead of their qualifications. We think that the draw is just as possible as the Iran win here.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This seems like the most possible result for this match. Bulgaria have at least improved in defense lately and they concede less goals than usual. We think that one goal per team is a good option for this particular game. When we compare the Bulgaria vs Iran line ups, we think that the teams are more or less equal in strength and Iran have a slight advantage in strength overall.
Bulgaria vs Iran Team Previews
The Bulgarian national team is having one of its worst periods in history. And that period has continued for years now. There seems to be a slight improvement in that team and a lot of young players are beginning to step up. However, with all the corruption in their football union, there is no way anyone can expect much from that team. They are the weaker team on paper.
Iran have been unbelievable over the last few years and they showed it in the World Cup too. They got a win over Wales and almost beat USA. Since the WC, they have been unbelievable. They won four games in a row against fairly weaker sides and Bulgaria will be their biggest challenge in a while. We still expect a strong performance from them.
