The Champion of Bulgaria Ludogorec stays tonight at 20.00 in Slavia in a match of the 8th Round of the First League. This is the second consecutive visit of the "eagles" from Razgrad to the capital within a few days. On Wednesday Dimitar Dimitrov's - Hero ended 0-0 with Levski at the "Georgi Asparuhov" stadium, although for a certain period of the match they were on the pitch with a man more.
Ludogorets is the only loss-free team since the start of the season in the First League. However, the Hero-led team is in a mini-series of two consecutive draws, with the 1: 1 hiccup with the Pirin (Blagoevgrad) at the Ludogorets arena quite disappointing at the end of August.
"The Whites" have started very poorly and have only one victory here. Zlatomir Zagoric's footballers have just one point in their last four games and in the previous round they have suffered a heavy defeat by Levski 0-4. Slavia failed to score a goal in its last six home games against the champions, winning just one point at the 0-0 draw in 2012.
"White" will be able to rely on their new addition, Julis Ndong, who moved to the team from Ovcha Kupel from Lokomotiv Gorna Oryahovitsa. Sofia citizens can also boast a new name under the door frame after they secured the signature of the Italian watchman, Jerry, who was attracted after a trial.
At the same time, the Greek defender Teodoris, who was not impressed with his performance, was taken from the team and Yannis Karabeliev was rented in the village of Tsarsko village.
In the fight with Ludogorets, Georgi Petkov and Ivan Minchev are injured while Georgi Yomov remains in question until the last moment.
Before the start of the match Ludogorets is second in the ranking with 15 points and lags behind 4 behind CSKA Sofia. Slavia is 12th with 5 points.
Ludogoretz's camp continues to speculate about transferring Missidjan to Turkey. According to the media in our southern neighbor, he is in front of a transfer to Bursaspor.
At the same time, the leadership of the champions continues negotiations with striker Kaloudu Kesheru for a new contract. The current contract of the Romanian expires at the end of the year.
Guest coach Dimitar Dimitrov will not be able to rely on Sissyne, who was punished for one game after receiving a red card in the delayed derby with Levski on Gerena on Wednesday.
However, Igor Plastun returned to the greens, after recovering from the trauma.
