The main contenders for the championship title of the First League are meeting. “Ludogorets” single-handedly leads in the standings, ahead of CSKA by five points. Therefore, the army team should win in the upcoming game in order to close the distance from a direct competitor. Well, the guests, if successful, will receive a solid groundwork.
In the last round of the championship, CSKA failed to beat Arda away (2: 2). Ludogorets, in turn, lost to Pirin in a large and sensational arena at home (3: 5).
In 2021, the opponents held six fights, in which three victories were drawn by Ludogorets, twice defeated CSKA, and once the rivals did not determine which of them was stronger – an effective draw 1: 1.
In the upcoming match, the bookmakers do not single out a favorite, offering an almost equal line for the main outcomes: W1 – 2.66, draw – 3.20, W2 – 2.55. At the same time, the failure of Ludogorets in the last round is alarming, so it is worth taking a closer look at the outcome of 1X, which goes beyond 1.46.
In the last five home matches of all tournaments, CSKA footballers managed to win four victories. And the army team was not inferior to Ludogorets in the home arena in nine games in a row. True, eight meetings of this series ended in a draw. You can bet on H1 (0) with the odds of 1.95.
In total, bookmakers prefer the grassroots format. Bets on TM (2.5) goals go for 1.69, TB (2.5) – 2.20.
If we take five past CSKA matches, then moderate performance was recorded three times in them. At the same time, Ludogorets finished two of the last three away matches at TM (2.5).
Forecast and rate
I will assume that the bottom will be fixed in this match. In the ten previous teams’ fights in Sofia, the horse exodus took place only twice.
