Bulgaria consolidated second place in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group B thanks to a 2-1 success against Malta.

The visitors, who succumbed 1-0 against section winners Italy last time out, responded with intent in Ta' Qali as Radoslav Dimitrov opened the scoring on nine minutes. PFC CSKA Sofia midfielder Emil Gargorov doubled the lead before the hour though Edward Herrera's reply ensured a nerve-jangling final 12 minutes.
