This is the 4th match in a row without a win for the Bulgarian side. The team of Kosovo took the lead and Bulgaria equalized at the end of the first half. In the 55th minute the Bulgarians scored, taking a 2-1 lead, but Kosovo, the more aggressive team throughout the match, drew in the 64th minute ultimately winning the match with a goal in the 92nd minute.
