Cyprus vs Bulgaria
International Friendlies
Date: 16 November 2022, Wednesday
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: AEK Arena – George Karapatakis (Larnaca).

Cyprus and Bulgaria will lock horns in a low-profile international friendly on Wednesday evening at AEK Arena – George Karapatakis.

Both teams have had subpar campaigns in both World Cup Qualifications and UEFA Nations League recently.

Cyprus finished second from bottom in their qualifying group with just five points from ten games. They ended the campaign lock on points with the likes of Malta.

Cyprus then went on to produce another dreadful run in UEFA Nations League, finishing the group with Greece, Kosovo, and Northern Ireland at the very foot of the standings.

This means Cyprus will play in the very last tier of the Nations League in the next edition of the competition.

Bulgaria should enter this tie in much higher spirits following back-to-back victories over Gibraltar and North Macedonia in the previous two matches.

The Bulgarians are now unbeaten in four successive games as they came second in their respective UEFA Nations League group with Georgia, North Macedonia, and Gibraltar.

Bulgaria earned confidence under new manager Mladen Krstajic who will be looking to carry the positive momentum from the recent matches into the following two friendlies against Cyprus and Luxembourg.

By far the biggest threat in this Bulgarian team is captain Kiril Despodov. If you have a chance to back the anytime goalscorer pick for this game, the Ludogorets’ forward should be your top option.

Cyprus conceded five goals in their recent defeat to Kosovo in late-September. Bulgaria by no means represent a dangerous offensive unit but we do see them as the favorites to get the win here, especially after two straight successes in September’s window.

We’ll take Bulgaria to win to nil as the main betting option at the odds of 3.75, while those who prefer correct score punts can try with the visitors to win 0-1 at the 6.50 odds.
