As time goes on, the likelihood of Bulgaria qualifying is looking slimmer and slimmer. Even the manager, Petar Hubchev has mentioned that qualifying will be very difficult. There are five points between France and Bulgaria, but the quality of the teams is difficult to compare. Bulgaria do not have many star names that will certainly dominate, but France have many names like this. The worst thing Bulgaria can do is enter the game with a defeatist attitude. They need to truly believe in their ability and not give up until the final whistle.
On the other hand, France are looking extremely dangerous in this game. They have a very strong squad. Not only is their team strong, but their team is absolutely filled with youth. Players such as Dembele, Mpabbe and Pogba spring to mind here. The downside is that France have a few players out, including Pogba and Dembele. Deschamps seems to be very confident about this game, and has insisted that he does not feel a great amount of pressure, nor has he done much different in preparation for the game. This is a very confident way of thinking, but it can also be a slippery slope. If France underestimate Bulgaria, this could easily lead to an upset. France need to treat Bulgaria like any other team, and their talent should easily lead them to a win.
