Ten-man Bulgaria survived more than an hour of constant pressure from Denmark to keep intact their unbeaten record in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group B.

Having taken four points from the first two home games against Italy and Armenia, Bulgaria made the best possible start as Dimitar Rangelov headed them into a seventh-minute lead. The game turned when Bulgaria's Ivan Bandalovski was sent off in the 26th minute but, though Nicklas Bendtner levelled for the visitors before the break, the hosts held firm in the second half to stay second in the section.
