Renzo Barbera (Palermo, Italia) will be hosting on 6 September 2013, an World Cup 2014 Qualification Europe (Group B) match between Italy and Bulgaria. The match referee will be Carlos Velasco Carballo (Spain).
The Italian national team is in position 6 in FIFA rankings, while the Bulgarian national team is 53. Italy was very impressive during the 2012 Euros when it reached the final, and it is now among the five favourites teams to lift next years World crown. The team has defeated both qualifiers at home and has become on top in the three previous home meetings against Bulgaria 2-0 twice and a 2-1 scoreline. Midfielder, Andrea Pirlo, is still very impressive, even at the age of 34. Players: Balotteli, Osvaldo and Montolivo all miss the game suspended for Italy.
Bulgaria has made so far two wins and four draws in the group, and its much against Italy is its big challenge. Having made two draws with Denmark and Czech Republic gave the team some hope, but, the friendly defeat in Macedonia made the players loose some their hope. Aston Villas, Aleksander Tonev, is a very good player, who is likely to play up front with captain Ivelin Popov in behind.
