Italy vs Bulgaria Match Preview and Live Stream

It’s finally time to see the reigning UEFA Euros champion in action again. The Azzurri were imperious this summer and deservedly lifted the trophy at Wembley. Even in their qualifiers, they have a perfect record. Roberto Mancini’s men have beaten Northern Ireland, Lithuania, and Bulgaria by a 2-0 scoreline, and with 9 points out of three matches, are top of their group.

Yasen Petrov’s Bulgaria have been awful in the competition so far. They have just 1 point from three games, and even that came in a scoreless draw against minnows Northern Ireland. The country is seeing its best talent retire and the new generation isn’t close to being as good. But this could be the chance for their current players to prove a point as they face the European champions in Italy.

However, one would need to buy a premium SonyLiv account to live stream the matches. Italy vs Bulgaria kicks off at 12:15 AM IST on Friday, 3rd September 2021 at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence, Italy.

Italy and Bulgaria are miles apart in their quality. Mancini will go with a strong team because this is perhaps the toughest game they will have in this group. Plus, a win here would ensure Italy can relax in the last few matches. Hence, a strong Italy side beats Bulgaria any day of the week.
