Before the match
The battle at the “Alexander Shalamanov” stadium will take place under serious security measures because of the doubts in the SDVR that the battle scenes from the mass protest against the BFS on November 16 may be repeated.
In the last month, Bulgaria made two draws with Kosovo – 1:1 and 2:2, and before that, they also lost dramatically at home to Germany with 3:2. Estonia, on the other hand, is in an even more complicated situation, since it has not been successful for a year. Last crushed Lithuania in November 2022 with 5:1.
However, the history between the youth selections of Bulgaria and Estonia is rich – in 7 official meetings, Bulgaria has three wins and no losses.
