France – Bulgaria Preview

  • EURO 2020 heavyweights France have avoided defeat in 18 of their previous 19 internationals (W15, D3, L1), with 11 of those wins being accompanied by a HT lead. ‘Les Bleus’ have also kept a clean sheet in their previous three outings (W3), and notably, a fourth successive shutout would mark their longest run without conceding since June 2008!
  • Older generations of French fans still have animosity with Bulgaria, stemming from a 2-1 loss at Parc des Princes in 1993, which prevented ‘Les Bleus’ from reaching the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The changes since have been drastic, with France winning all three H2Hs thereafter, scoring one goal within 25 minutes and leading at HT on each occasion.
  • Never able to emulate or better their fourth-place finish in that same edition of the World Cup, Bulgaria are looking to end a dreadful run of seven consecutive international games without a win (D3, L4). Significantly, four of their previous eight games have witnessed the opener scored within ten minutes.
  • Yasen Petrov’s men lost 1-0 away to Russia last time out, thereby making it 13 consecutive winless games played outside of Bulgaria (D6, L7), while failing to find the net in all but one of the last seven. That said, Bulgaria have conceded just once before HT across their last eight away outings.
  • Players to watch: Five of French striker Kylian Mbappé’s previous six goalscoring internationals to feature over 1.5 goals have also seen Antoine Griezmann get on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, Bulgaria’s Dimităr Iliev has been the game’s final scorer in his two prior goalscoring international fixtures, during matches that produced three goals precisely.
  • Hot stat: Eleven of Bulgaria’s previous 12 friendlies have witnessed all of the match goals arrive inside one half.
