Tournament: Qualification for Euro 2024
Stadium: Vasil Levski National Stadium, Sofia
Kevin Schobot is replaced by Jolt Nagy.
Milos Kerkes has been kicked out! The left full-back got into Alex Petkov’s legs unmeasured, which turned out to be enough to get a second yellow card and a red card, respectively.
Chance for Hungary! The second half began with pressure from the guests. The star of the team, Dominik Soboslay, took a direct free kick, but luckily for us, the ball flew past Daniel Naumov’s goal. Another opportunity for the team followed when Callum Stiles from close range failed to register.
THIS IS HOW THE ODDS HAVE CHANGED FOR THE SECOND PART!
Zhivko Atanasov replaces Ivaylo Chochev.
Endre Botka got himself a yellow card for simulation.
Red card for Ilia Gruev! No! Polish referee Daniel Stefanski rightly judged that the last remaining defender Iliya Gruev did not deliberately seek contact, picking up a well-deserved yellow card for Endre Botka.
Valentin Antov has been suspended from the game! The defender of the “tricolors” Valentin Antov acted recklessly, as he committed an unnecessary offense in the center of the field. The referee had an excellent view of the situation and decided to show a second yellow card and respectively a red card for the Cremonese defender.

The riots continue
GOAL FOR BULGARIA! Despite a shaky start, the “lions” managed to restore parity. Our captain Kiril Despodov rushed down the wing, then combined with Spas Delev, who with a magnificent shot stretched the net of Denesh Dybush.
GOAL FOR HUNGARY! In view of the total dominance of the Hungarians from the beginning of the meeting, the logical thing happened. Captain Dominik Soboslay crossed into the small penalty area, where Martin Adam swooped in to head the ball in for 1-0.
Yellow card for Valentin Antov.
Mystery – Hungarian fans were allowed into the stadium
The Bulgarians are protesting
The Hungarians missed another opportunity to open the scoring. Again, left-back Callum Styles got away from his personal keeper when he crossed into the box, where away star Dominic Soboslay headed wide.
As expected, the Hungarians, in the role of favorites, started the match more confidently. The Bulgarian defense lost concentration for a moment when they conceded a lead pass to Callum Stiles, but he fired a shot wide.

Ugly scenes around the “Vasil Levski” stadium
The national football team hosts Hungary today at 19:00 in a Group G match of the European qualifiers.
Two hours before the starting signal of the Polish referee Daniel Stefanski, in the vicinity of the national stadium “Vasyl Levski”, a large-scale protest began against the management of the BFS, demanding the immediate resignation of the boss Borislav Mihailov and his entourage.

The headquarters in Boyana tried to avoid this scenario by moving the match to Plovdiv with the excuse that it was a UEFA decision, but their efforts proved to be in vain and in the end “Vasil Levski” will host the match, but without an audience.
Given the situation in our group, in which Bulgaria occupies the last place with 2 points, the stadium was hardly going to burst at the seams, but BFS raised the interest of the fans with their strange maneuvers. More than 10,000 fans of all colors are expected to protest, and about 1,600 policemen will take care of peace and order.
The match will be the official debut for coach Ilian Iliev, who was appointed after the release of Mladen Krastaic. In their previous match of the group under the leadership of the Serbian, Bulgaria lost 0:3 against Hungary in Budapest, and the result could have been more expressive.
Iliev is expected to bet on a familiar line-up: Daniel Naumov, Viktor Popov, Valentin Antov, Alex Petkov, Anton Nedyalkov, Ilia Gruev, Ivaylo Chochev, Kiril Despodov, Filip Krastev, Georgi Rusev, Martin Minchev.
Regardless of what happens in and around the stadium, let’s wish Iliev and the national team the best of luck tonight.
