Bulgaria vs Iran: Head to head statistics



Bulgaria vs Iran match preview

These two nations have only ever met once before, playing out a 1-1 draw at Azadi Stadium 45 years ago.

Who will win the rematch in the slightly less glamorous location of Plovdiv?

Bulgaria are desperately searching for their first win of 2023, having lost two and drawn two in European Championship qualifying so far.

In June, Mladen Krstajić’s team did hold both Lithuania and Serbia to 1-1 draws, but the Lions’ two-decade long wait for a major tournament appearance is highly-likely to continue.

Ahead of Sunday’s trip to Montenegro, will Bulgaria claim a friendly victory here?

IR Iran meanwhile have featured at each of the last three World Cups and, next January, are aiming to win their first Asia Cup since 1976.

Amir Ghalenoei’s team picked up the CAFA Nations Cup during the summer, recording wins over Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, but this’ll be a much tougher test.

Nevertheless, Iran will fancy their chances of a victory at Stadion Hristo Botev.
