Hapoel Beer Sheva vs Ludogorets
Champions League Third qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 26th July 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Yaakov Turner Toro Stadium.
Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Ludogorets are set to take on each other in one of the most interesting clashes of the third qualifying round in this term of Champions League.
Both teams collected a worthy experience in group stages of the continental competitions last year and it is very hard to say which of the two will have an edge in this particular tie.
Hapoel Be’er Sheva
Hapoel were unlucky to suffer the Champions League elimination to Celtic (5-4 on aggregate) last year, but they have had a strong campaign in Europa League group tage past the likes of Southampton, Inter Milan and Sparta Prague.
Ben Sahar and Anthony Nwakaeme are the main stars of the team. The Nigerian striker bagged two goals in matches with Honved (two wins) in the second qualifying round and he will be the main threat for Ludogorets’ goal this Wednesday.
The visitors have as many as eight Brazilians in their squad which seems to be stronger than last year when they came third in a very strong Champions League group featuring the names of PSG, Arsenal and Basel.
Ludogorets had certain troubles with Zalgiris in the second qualifying round as they lost the first leg and conceded an early opener in the rematch but only to bag four and storm past the strong Lithuanian side at the end.
