Italy

Italy is unbeaten for 34 matches and Roberto Mancini's charges are one step away from repeating the world record. Squadra Azzurra became the best national team on the continent at the recent European Championships, where they beat England in a dramatic final on penalties.

As for the selection for the 2022 World Cup, the Italians are leading in the group with one hundred percent after three matches and are ahead of their closest competitors by three points, but have played a game more. In the last round the team defeated Lithuania (2:0) on their field and before that it was more successful than its current opponents, beating them in Sofia (2:0).

Bulgaria

Bulgaria scored only one point in three starting qualifying games and is ranked second to last in the group. In addition, the outsider has a match in reserve and Yasen Petrov's team may drop even lower in the overall standings. The team cannot win over eight meetings, and in the last round they barely achieved a draw against the Northern Ireland national team (0:0).

In the June friendly matches, the Bulgarians were able to draw with Slovakia (1:1) and suffered two defeats from the national teams of Russia (0:1) and France (0:3).

Prediction

The mentor of the reigning European champions has recruited practically same players who won the victory on the continent's fields this summer. Italy is in excellent shape and the team has a chance not only to strengthen its leadership in the group, but also to repeat the world record for the length of unbeaten matches.

Most likely, “Scuadra Azzurra” wants to confirm their reputation as the best team in Europe in front of their native stands and we believe that the Bulgarians will have huge problems from the very beginning. The opponent has nothing to oppose to the opponent either in attack or defense, where Bulgaria makes a lot of mistakes. Considering all these factors, we assume that guests will fail in the away confrontation and suggest taking advantage of this.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-2.5) for Italy. For such an outcome bookmaker 1xBet offers odds of 1.90.

Bulgaria has scored two goals in the last six matches and has a clear deficit of attacking players and problems with creativity. Most likely, only hosts will score in this match, but we believe that their potential will be enough for two and the meeting promises to end with a large number of goals scored.

Our second bet will be over three goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.79.
