Tsarsko Selo will be hoping to bounce back here after the 2-1 First League loss in their previous game against CSKA 1948.
In that game, Tsarsko Selo had 46% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For Tsarsko Selo, the goalscorers were Panagiotis Louka (23' Own goal) and Dimitar Kostadinov (67'). At the other end, CSKA 1948 had 9 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Georgi Rusev (74') scored for CSKA 1948.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Tsarsko Selo have shown defensive steel. The reality is that The Kings have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 12 goals along the way.
Analysis of their past results shows that Tsarsko Selo:
- have not registered a win against Botev in their last 2 league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Arda Kardzhali in First League action, Botev and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Botev managed 47% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Arda Kardzhali got 10 shots on goal with 7 on target. Juninho Piauiense (12', 53') was the scorer for Arda Kardzhali.
It is worth noting that Botev have failed to get amongst the goals in their past six clashes, netting the unsatisfactory return of just 1. In those matches, The Canaries have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 16. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Coming into this fixture, Botev are without an away win for the past 11 league games. It's not a good run at all.

Team News: Tsarsko Selo
Tsarsko Selo manager Lyuboslav Penev doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game owing to a fully healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Botev
Botev boss Azrudin Valentic has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tom (Unknown Injury), Kostadin Nichev (Hip Injury) and Yuliyan Nenov (Ankle Surgery) will miss out on this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Botev will have to perform well to put one past this Tsarsko Selo team who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Tsarsko Selo at the end of this one.
Should be an interesting one.
