Ludogorec meets Pirin in a match of the seventh round of the Bulgarian football championship. The match is tonight at 21:00 at the Ludogorets Arena stadium.
On Thursday, Ludogorec made a zero draw on his visit to Sveduva in the draw of the Europa League playoffs, and so he ran into the group stage after losing 2-0 at home a week earlier. In the groups, the Bulgarian team will have quite a lot of rivals - Braga, Istanbul BB and Hoffenheim. For Ludogorets this participation in the Europa League will be a serious test for which Dimitar Dimitrov and the company will have to think in two weeks. They are now directing their attention to Pirin's household in the First League. Ludogorets is third in a 13-point championship after four wins and a draw from the start of the season. Razgrad players have a lesser game after their Levski match was postponed and will be played on September 6, so the "eagles" will have the opportunity to lead the way. In the last round, Ludogorets defeated the Danube 5-0 as a guest to register a third consecutive win in the championship. The only wrong step was in the second round against Lokomotiv Plovdiv (0: 0) at home.
Pirin Blagoevgrad occupies the 10th position in the table with a five-point asset. The eagles have only one success this season - 1: 0 as a guest of Botev Plovdiv in the first round. Then they registered poor results, including losses from the newcomers Etar and Septemvri. On his last visit, Pirin retreated to Eter with 1: 2, before winning a point as Beroe's guest after a 1-1 draw.
Pirin has no victory against Ludogorets, having six draws and five losses. In March, the Razgrad players won their home game with 3: 0, a year before with 4: 1. We expect Ludogorets to win again with three goals and win an easy victory against this rival.
