Bulgaria vs Slovenia UEFA Nations League
Bulgaria is fighting to win the group’s lead. Slovenia is already sure to go down in League D.
State of form
Bulgaria is currently 2nd in Group 3 of League C of the League of Nations and has the same number of points as the leader. Petar Huchev’s men started the competition by winning their first 3 games in Slovenia (2-1), Norway (1-0) and Cyprus (2-1). They then stalled, as evidenced by the setback suffered in Norway (0-1) and the draw conceded in Cyprus last Friday (1-1).
Red lantern of this League of Nations hen with 2 points gleaned in 5 games, Slovenia has greatly disappointed. After conceding 3 consecutive losses against Bulgaria (1-2), Cyprus (1-2) and Norway (0-1), Slovenians have lined 2 home draws in the last 2 days, against Cyprus ( 1-1) and Norway (1-1).
Headcount for Bulgaria vs Slovenia
For Bulgaria, it is important to note the absence of several elements present last October: the goalkeeper Iliev (injured), and midfield Milanov (41 caps) and Tsonev (0 selection), as well as the striker replacing Despodov. In addition, the Nedelev midfielder is suspended. Captain Ivelin Popov (14 goals in 78 caps) is the real leader of this selection.
Slovenia are still without goalkeeper Atletico Madrid Jan Oblak who has distanced himself from the selection since last March, like other executives Cesar, Birsa (Chievo), Kampl (Leipzig) and Matavz (Vitesse). In addition, captain Jokic (ex-Villarreal), midfielder Nantes Khrin, the excellent Kurtic (SPAL) and Vitesse Matavz are missing. Major offensive midfielder Ilicic returns for the match after serving his suspension match. The former Bergamen should animate the Slovenian attack with Verbic (Kiev) and Beric (Sainté).
In the first leg, Bulgaria won in Slovenia (2-1).
