Ludogorets vs CSKA Sofia (By: Stanioooo)
Final phase of Bulgarian A league and a match between Ludogorets and CSKA Sofia.
The 6 time in a row champions of Bulgaria are looking to extend their lead to 6 points win a win in this match between the two best teams in Bulgaria nowadays. The best 6 teams are part of the Champions group and each one of them have 1 home match and one as visitors to the other teams, so home games are almost required for CSKA and Ludogorets, even in this big matches between them. Ludogorets are just 3 points in front and I am sure we will see really focused preduction by them. There was a lot of pressure over them in December when they faced CSKA in the domestic league and in the Cup. Ludogorets suffered a loss 1:2 in Razgrad, first away win for CSKA over Razgrad as visitors, and then a draw in the cup with a winning goal for CSKA in the extra time.
Now the situation is totally different, because the situation in Ludogorets squad is calmed and they finally started to play the way they can. Last two matches finished 5:0 and 6:0 and I can expect goals by the whole team. Their attacking power is full of Brazilian players and everyone can decide this match. The new forward Swierczok is expected to be on the bench, substitution to the Romanian striker Keseru. Supported by Misidjan, Wanderson and Marcelinho, this team is really hard to be stopped scoring goals. Wanderson can be a substitution in this match, because he was injured and maybe Lukoki will start, while Stoyanov(GK) in out of play for a long time and he has excellent substitutions. It's expected the Brazilian goalkeeper Renan to start the match. CSKA also have good news in their team, because their main forward Karanga will return in the starting line-up after one match of suspention, both with Bodurov.
To sum up both teams will be with their best and I'm sure this match will be totally different from these oncein December, when the situation in Ludogorets was with a high pressure, they were also very tired of the EL matches and infact there were some whispers that club thought to replace their coach Dimitar Dimitrov with a new one. If we exclude their last two matches in December, Ludogorets have full dominance over CSKA in the league, especially at home. They finally found their rhythm of play, while CSKA showed a lot of weaknesses after they trashed Vereya in the start of the spring season matches. They succeeded to beat teams like Etar and Pirin in the finals 5 minutes with 2:1, got a draw 0:0 with Cherno More. In the last match they dominated Botev and beat them 4:1 at home, but they always got good results against them and it wasn't such surprise.
Now it will be totally different match from these once in December and I expect solid performance by both sides, but a win for the home side. Maybe 2:1 or 3:1 are the most expected results for me!
