Worth mentioning: Bulgarians and Italians have met on a total of six times throughout history so far. In 1983 Roma and CSKA Sofia faced each other for the first time, as they were paired at the 1/8 finals of the Champions League and the Wolves won both legs via slender 1:0 scores. Roma won all of the first four matches, but are currently winless in two after losing 3:1 in the Bulgarian capital just less than an year ago in a game of Europa League group stage and the previous one in Italy ending in a boring goalless draw. Two of the six meetings produced over 2,5 goals, while just one witnessed goals at both ends.
