Cyprus will host Bulgaria in an international friendly match at AEK Arena on Wednesday evening. Both sides have not qualified for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, as the hosts finished fifth in Group H of the UEFA Qualifiers, while Bulgaria managed to secure only a fourth place finish in Group C. Meanwhile, the two Nations were involved in Nations League fixture in September, with Cyprus suffering a 5-1 thrashing away to Kosovo, while the visitors secured a narrow 1-0 win over North Macedonia.  

Both nations will be playing their first match since completing disappointing campaigns in the UEFA Nations League. Cyprus finished at the bottom of League C Group 2 while Lions managed to secure a second-place finish in League C Group 4, not enough to earn promotion. Cyprus’ last outing against Kosova ended in a 5-1 defeat despite the fact that Valentin Roberge got on the scoresheet. Prior to that, Temuri Ketsbaia’s side secured a narrow 1-0 win over Greece courtesy of Marinos Tzionis’ early goal. Bulgaria, on the other hand, got the better of North Macedonia on September 27 courtesy of Kiril Despodiv’s 50th-minute goal. The Lions will also take on Luxembourg in a friendly on November 20 before beginning their EURO 2024 qualifiers against Montenegro late in March. Bulgaria are drawn in Group G alongside Hungary, Lithuania, Serbia and Montenegro.
