Team News: Ludogorets Razgrad
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Ludogorets Razgrad manager Ante Šimundža to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Shaquille Pinas (Shoulder Injury) won’t play.
In all likelihood, The Eagles will probably use the 4-2-3-1 formation for the game and select Sergio Padt, Cicinho, Igor Plastun, Olivier Verdon, Zan Karnicnik, Claude Goncalves, Show, Kiril Despodov, Spas Delev, Rick and Pieros Sotiriou.
Team News: Cherno More Varna
From a largely available squad, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Cherno More Varna boss Ilian Iliev to contend with. Vasil Panayotov (Fractured Arm) won’t be playing here.
We believe The Sailors might begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation with a starting lineup of Ivan Dyulgerov, Viktor Popov, Daniel Dimov, Vlatko Drobarov, Martin Dichev, Stefan Velev, Pablo Alvarez, Velislav Vasilev, Mazire Soula, Zakaria Benchaa and Jeka.
We’re of the opinion that Ludogorets Razgrad certainly have the ability to get amongst the goals when they line up against Cherno More Varna, who could well struggle finding the net themselves.
We’re tipping a comfortable 2-0 victory for Ludogorets Razgrad at the conclusion of the game.
