Team News: Slavia Sofia
The Slavia Sofia boss Zlatomir Zagorčić has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game with a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
We are thinking that The White Avalanche will probably kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system for this game, beginning the first half with Svetoslav Vutsov, Ertan Tombak, Veljko Jelenkovic, Viktor Genev, Ventsislav Kerchev, Ivan Minchev, Erol Dost, Denislav Aleksandrov, Galin Ivanov, N. Jakobsen Hristov and Toni Tasev.
Team News: Beroe Stara Zagora
Due to a fully injury-free squad available for selection, the Beroe Stara Zagora boss José Acciari has no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
We believe Zelenite seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup, giving starts to Rodrigo Accinelli, Temitope Akinjogunla, Luciano Squadrone, Franco Mingo, Enzo Espinoza, Segundo Pachame, Stefan Gavrilov, Gianni Politino, Carlos Algarra, Sebastian Villa and Vinni Triboulet.
In this game, Slavia Sofia will probably be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, Beroe Stara Zagora may well find it hard to make a breakthrough but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting enough chances to score, too.
We can therefore see a controlled 3-1 margin for Slavia Sofia at the end of the 90 minutes.
