Vasil Levski Stadium

Vasil Levski Stadium, where Bulgaria host Wales, could be virtually empty

Wales fans could outnumber their Bulgarian hosts as Gary Speed's men complete their failed Euro 2012 campaign in Sofia on Tuesday.

BBC football commentator Nigel Adderley reports: "The Bulgarian FA have said the fans have planned a boycott of tonight's match."

An estimated 400 Wales fans are heading to the 43,632 capacity stadium.

Bulgaria recently sacked coach Lothar Matthaus and could finish bottom of Group G if Wales win.

Wales can finish third in the group if they are victorious and Montenegro win in Switzerland.
