Bulgarian national team took a breather with a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Belarus on Nov. 13, but the truth is that the hosts didn’t impressed much in that game, as well as in each of their previous three games in Group A against Luxembourg (4-3/home), France (1-4/away) and Sweden (0-3/away).It’s obvious that Petar Hubchev must solve many problems, the biggest of which is definitely the poor defense, as the hosts conceded a total of ten goals in their previous four games in this group, which puts them among the teams with the worst defenses in the qualifying campaign.
In addition to that, this match against Netherlands comes in a very inopportune moment for the home team, given the fact that important players like Vladislav Stoyanov (g / 19+0), Ivan Ivanov (d / 40+3), Svetoslav Dyakov (m / 35+0), Mihail Aleksandrov (m / 18+3), Marcelinho (m / 7+2), Georgi Milanov (m / 34+2) and Dimitar Rangelov (f / 40+6) are out due to injuries, while Aleksandar Aleksandrov (d / 16+0) will serve a one-match ban.
Maarten Stekelenburg (g / 58+0), Jeffrey Bruma (d / 25+1), Jetro Willems (d / 22+0), Daryl Janmaat (d / 28+0), Leroy Fer (m / 11+1), Stijn Schaars (m / 24+0), Luciano Narsingh (f / 19+4) and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (f / 76+42) are some of the players that will miss this match for Netherlands, but unlike his colleague, Danny Blind has a lot of options to replace them successfully.
Netherlands significantly excels Bulgaria in terms of individual qualities of the players and considering the current situation in Bulgarian team, I think that the guests are capable to cover this handicap.
