Pirin Blagoevgrad vs Vereya by Sors
Pirin Blagoevgrad qualified for the quarter-finals of the Bulgarian Cup after a 1-0 win in the visit to Sozopol on Thursday, first for this team in October after two defeats against Ludogorets Razgrad (1-3/home) and Slavia Sofia (1-3/away).
Despite its current position in the lower half of the standings, Pirin leaves an impression of a well-balanced team, whose backbone is built from several very experienced players like Aleksandar Bashliev (defender), Orlin Starokin (midfielder), Anton Kostadinov (midfielder), Daniel Mladenov (midfielder / 7 goals), Vladislav Zlatinov (forward / 2 goals) and Stanislav Kostov (forward / 2 goals).
In addition to that, the hosts traditionally rely mostly on their games at Hristo Botev Stadium, having recorded three victories and a draw in four games here prior to their match against Ludogorets Razgrad on Oct. 14 (2-1 vs. Lokomotiv Gorna Oryahovitsa, 1-1 vs. CSKA Sofia, 2-1 vs. Botev Plovdiv and 1-0 vs. Montana).
Krasimir Kostov (first goalkeeper / 6+0), Aleksandar Bashliev (d / 11+0), Kristian Kostrna (d / 11+0) and Orlin Starokin (m / 10+0) have been rested against Sozopol and will be fresh for that game, while Stefan Genov has almost a full squad to choose from, with the exception of Toni Tasev (m / 10+0), who got injured against Ludogorets Razgrad.
Vereya comes from a 1-0 win at home against Pomorie at the quarter-finals of the Bulgarian Cup on Thursday, but the guests have obvious problems in the league, where they won just one point from their last five games against Lokomotiv Plovdiv (1-3/away), Ludogorets Razgrad (1-5/home), Slavia Sofia (1-3/away), Cherno More (1-2/away) and Neftochimik Burgas (1-1/home).
The guests have recorded five defeats and one draw in their previous six away games in the league (0-1-5 3/13) and will travel to Blagoevgrad without top scorer Georgi Andonov (f / 2+2) and the new signing Salim Kerkar (f / 1+0).
I think that the home team will manage to win three points from this match.
