Bulgaria v Canada Prediction

Bulgaria lost 3 of their last 4 matches in their ultimately unsuccessful bid to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. And they have played just once since – a 2-1 friendly win against Belarus in March.

Manager Luboslav Penev mainly named home-based players in his squad as he assesses his options ahead of qualification for UEFA Euro 2016, which begins in September. Penev insists they will be ready for Friday’s encounter.

“I expect to continue on this good line of development and we will try to consolidate and show something new. We were unable to qualify for the World Cup. I think we (got what) we deserved.”

Canada will go in search of their first win in more than 19 months. They have dropped to 110th in the FIFA rankings after a disastrous run of form which included their group stage exit at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. They have not played since November last year – when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Slovenia.

New manager Benito Floro took charge in August and has not been able to reverse the nation’s fortunes, with just one draw – against the 139th-ranked Mauritania – from 5 matches. They have also not scored in their last 10 matches either.

Given that the match is not being played in a FIFA international break, MLS players will remain with their clubs. Of that squad, 11 players are under the age of 21.
