Ludogorets vs Levski Sofia (By: Stanioooo)
Ludogorets host Levski in one of the last rounds in the Bulgarian league.
To sum up the things- Ludogorets are champions, Levski are still fighting for the 3rd place which gives opportunity for playing in EL. A lot of people will say- maybe the away side will be pretty much more motivated, they have to win points..naah, the situation is totally different right now.
Levski are 2 points ahead of Beroe, three rounds before the end. Beroe lost today, so if Levski also lose tomorrow, the difference will remain the same. Levski have one easy match against Vereya, the weakest team for sure in the first part of the table, absolutely possible to win it, so Beroe have to wait for a miracle- Levski to lose this match against Ludogorets, then again to lose against CSKA and a possible win against Vereya, while Beroe have to win twice against the 1st and the 2nd team in the league in their remaining matches. It's quite possible Levski to lose against Ludogorets and CSKA and to win against Vereya, but I really doubt Beroe can beat CSKA and Ludogorets even if they play with some youghts.
H2H Ludogorets won their last two matches against Levski 2:0 at home and 1:0 away in Sofia. They have full dominance in our league and I doubt we will see anything different tomorrow. WHY? I will try to be short!
Levski lost the final in the Bulgarian cup on Wednesday against Slavia after penalties. Levski had full dominance, but still couldn't find the way to score. In the penalties they lost 3:1 and Slavia will play in EL qualifications for sure, while Levski have to fight for the third place if they want participation in EL in the next season. Today's loss of Beroe can make them breathe a little bit easier, after they know a loss in Razgad will not be a huge problem. The mood in the club is low for sure after they missed another trophy and the main causer is Slavia again! They have 4 main players who are suspended or injured- two players in defense and two players in the midfield.
To make the things even worse for the visitors- they will play against a fresh team, which will also celebrate the title tomorrow after the end of the match against Levski. The stadium is expected to be full and a win against Levski will be a big bonus before the celebrations. Fresh champions with the main starting line-up against Levski which team played 120 minutes three days ago and loss the cup. Also Ludogorets had 14 wins in a row in the league, history record, before it finished last round with the goalless draw against CSKA in Sofia at their 70th anniversary of the club. I can't be 100% sure how concentrated will be Ludogorets, if they will think more about the celebrations or the match against Levski, but the audience deserve a victory tomorrow and the coach together with the president of the club will keep the players focused firstly on the game, I'm sure about that.
I expect comfortable win for the champions tomorrow against depleted opponent and a big celebration of their seventh title in a row!
