Wish we got Copenhagen.

Milan really does have bad timing with just about everything, such a strong EL this year. One can just hope laws of the universe wont allow such unfortunes to continue for an eternity and that we will eventually see a damn well prepared tailwind.

Ah I see. Don't know why I always thought they were your second team.

What I can say is that we should not underestimate Ludogorets. I am not saying that they're anything special, but they're not Shkendia and we will not trash them 6-0, I can guarantee that. Also, the experience is on their side. Such a shame. I am talking about current players, not history. For the past 5 years they have been in the UCL twice and in EL groups twice as well. This makes around 45-50 games of european football, while most of our players got their debut this year.

Their game is aggresive and offensive with a lot of running and fast distribution of the ball. They usually do not park the bus, even against very strong opponents. They always play open, good-looking football which relies on their brazilian players.

Their defence is crap though. We will have our chances to score, so it is up to us to turn them into goals.

Notable results:
Win against Braga - away, EL, 2017
Win against Hoffenheim - home, EL, 2017
Draw against PSG - away, UCL, 2016 - last second equalizer by Di Maria
Draw against Basel - away, UCL, 2016
Win against Basel - home, UCL, 2014
Draw against Liverpool - home, UCL, 2014
Win against Lazio in Rome - EL, 2013 and knocking them out after scoring 4 goals in 2 games
Two wins against PSV - EL, 2013
Two wins against Dinamo Zagreb - EL, 2013

Other results worth mentioning:
Lost to PSG 1-3 after scoring first - 2016
Lost to Arsenal 2-3 after last minute winning goal by Giroud - 2016
Lost to Liverpool 2-1 after last second winning goal by Gerrard - 2014
Lost to Real Madrid 1-2 after 2 penalties and late winner by Benzema - 2014

I know it is not much, but it is not bad for team from Bulgaria and is certainly more than what Atalanta (for example) have to offer.

Wanderson should get proper attention, as he is their best player.

My prediction is 1-1 in Bulgaria and 3-0 in Italy

In case somebody has spare time today, he may watch the 1/4 cup derby between CSKA and Ludogorets. 4:30 CET

Leader vs runner-up. Last chance to see Ludogorets play as after this game there will be a 2-month break.

It matters not, we are not in a stage where we can mould our team game by game based on our opponents.

Our lads have only started playing like a team in the last few days, our focus should be on our game, regardless of the opponent in the coming weeks.

Lost 2-1 against CSKA and got knocked out of the Cup. Not impressed by them to be honest. I think they dropped their performance during the past 1-2 months. Hope this 2-month break makes it even worse for them and we trash them without much effort.

If we play in the same manner as against Verona and Atalanta, Ludogorets will definately know us out. Need massive improvement.

Ludogorets just lost their best striker for the games against us due to suspension. They literally have nobody to substitute him. They have some fast wing players, but not anyone else to cover the CF position.

Ludogorets got this guy for the CF position - https://www.transfermarkt.de/jakub-s...spieler/193554
Never heard of him but 16 goals in 21 games is quite good, especially while playing for the 5th in the table.

During the weekend Ludogorets played against Shakhtar Donetsk. Final score 2-2. Just a friendly, but most of Shakhtar's best players were present - Butko, Rakitsky, Stepanenko, Marlos, Tyson, Dentinho, Fred, etc.

Is it just me or does EL appear to have a lot more quality than usual? The late stages could almost look like CL

that's because of our bad luck, if we had united's luck last season, we would have been favorites to win the EL.

hopefully someone knocks out atleti or they don't take it seriously, the rest are beatable.

Aw Atalanta (vs Dortmund), what a pity.

They missed an open goal from 3 yard and conceded in extra time.

2-3 is not a terrible result to take home though.
