England v Bulgaria Football Betting Preview 07/09/2019
As one of the winners of their Nations League group, England are already assured of a place in the play-offs of Euro 2020 qualifying. Anybody who thought that insurance policy might see their levels drop was left in no doubt that is not the case.
Gareth Southgate demands the best from his players and sees qualifying as a great chance to build momentum heading into the finals next summer. They certainly headed into the Nations League finals on a high following two big wins from their first two qualifying matches and although things didn’t go to plan in Portugal, the bookies expect England to secure another comfortable win when they host Bulgaria at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
England’s Attack to Fire Again
England’s participation in the Nations League finals means that they have only played two qualifying matches whereas Bulgaria have played four times. And yet, England are top of the group with four more points than their opponents on Saturday.
Southgate’s men were at their very best going forwards against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, putting five goals past each of them. That has got to be a worry for a Bulgarian defence which has conceded in each of their four matches including three goals last time out against Kosovo.
Some of England’s most dangerous players have started the Premier League season strongly. That is bad news for Bulgaria and suggests that expectations of a big England win will not be wide of the mark.
If you’re looking for the best way to profit from an England win, we’d suggest ignoring the Match Odds market where England are available at a general price of 1/12. Instead, consider backing England with a two goal handicap applied at 4/5 with Sportingbet.
Another way of profiting from a match in which England makes the most of their firepower is by backing the home side to score over 3.5 goals at Wembley Stadium. Southgate has plenty of top class attacking players available to him who should be able to muster at least four goals between them against a Bulgaria side with little to play for so take the 11/8 with Betway.
Sterling Ready to Lead the Line
Raheem Sterling was given the captain’s armband in England’s last match against the Netherlands. It was a nice gesture from Southgate to mark the Manchester City forward’s 50th England cap.
Reaching that milestone at just 24 is an incredible achievement in itself but the future is even brighter than the past for Sterling. He is one of those England players who has started the season strongly so is ready to step up if the likes of Harry Kane or Marcus Rashford don’t quite have their shooting boots on at Wembley.
Sterling has added an extra calmness in front of goal since working with Pep Guardiola and is the man most likely to open the scoring against Bulgaria at odds of 7/2 with Betfred.
Harry Maguire is another player worth backing to score on Saturday afternoon. He’s generally settled in well since his big money move to Manchester United over the summer and whilst he’ll be most interested in keeping goals out at the other end, his aerial prowess from set pieces makes him a tempting bet to score anytime at 5/1 with BetVictor.
