Thanks to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the CSKA Sofia manager Stoycho Mladenov has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match.
We’re inclined to think that CSKA Sofia will need to push hard to hit the back of the net against this Ludogorets Razgrad lineup who we reckon should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
That’s why we have predicted a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for Ludogorets Razgrad when the full-time whistle blows.
Should be a close one.
