Dunav Ruse takes on Pirin Blagoevgrad in the third round of the Bulgarian First League. The game will commence on “Ludogorets Arena” in Razgrad as Dunav’s stadium did not get a license for this season.
Dunav managed to snatch up 4 points so far. In the first round they finished in a goalless draw against Vereya Stara Zagora here in “Ludogorets Arena” while somewhat surprisingly they won away at Neftochimic in the second round with a 2-1 score after a wonderful first half. Both games they showed determination and nice defensive play allowing little to no chances to the opposition. They managed to score their two goals against Neftochimic with swift direct play searching for striker Miroslav Budinov with long passes depending on him to either cause trouble with his speed or just flick the ball on for a teammate. It is expected that this game Budinov may be partnered with Branimir Kostdinov up front as head coach Veselin Velikov aims for taking all 3 points.
Pirin is one point behind their opposition. They played at home both rounds so far and managed to get 3 points. First game they lost to current leaders Cherno More Varna 1-3 and in the second round they managed to grab dramatic victory over Loko Gorna with a stoppage time goal. Despite the win Pirin did not impress at all in this game. They managed to create very little chances up front and made some huge mistakes at the back. Goalkeeper Argilashki was the main reason Loko Gorna equalized after conceding a goal from not so dangerous long range effort. After they conceded the equalizer Pirin looked disheartened and lacking discipline picking a lot of cards. It was pure luck they managed to get the 3 points after a long shot got deflected from defender right to the feet of Stanislav Kostov who score facing the goalkeeper one on one. Huge boost for head coach Stefan Genov will be the return of experienced winger Daniel Mladenov who missed a few months with injury. He along with goalscorers from last game Stanislav Kostov and Vladislav Zlatinov are expected to be involved in anything interesting the team creates.
The first two rounds Dunav showed far more impressive performances than Pirin or at least they looked more determined. In the last 8 home games against Pirin there hasn’t been a draw with hosts winning 5 and Pirin winning 3. From what I’ve seen so far this season I believe Dinav has some advantage in terms of form and determination. I’m expecting a close game with Dunav being slight favourites that’s why my pick here is Dunav 0.0 AH.
