Venue: Arena CSKA (Moscow).
After their wins in the first two fixtures, Ludogorets had to face back-to-back defeats against Espanyol, which likely have affected their confidence. However, they still are in a position to make a formidable pass at progressing, and considering they are taking on an opponent that they beat 5-1 in the reverse fixture, a win looks likely for Razgrad. Also note that CSKA Moscow are the dead-last placed team in the table, with a single point so far.

CSKA Moscow vs Ludogorets Razgrad Prediction
The Moscow outfit had taken on Samara the last match-day, with aid of home advantage. They were made to sweat for it, but the team did manage to secure the victory at the end of the game. The low-scoring affair had witnessed a single goal, and it was scored by the hosts, in the 75th minute.
The panicked visiting contingent did try to pull one back but had to settle for a 1-0 loss, as a result of excellent defending by the home team.
Ludogorets too had the home status the previous game week. They conceded right away in the 12th minute and went under pressure. However, they responded well and equalized four minutes later. They added one more in the 32nd minute and held the scoreline till the very end to register three points on the board.
This Thursday, consider the motivation level of both teams. The Russians stand just a theoretical chance to make it to the next stage and practically are ruled out of contention. On the other hand, Razgrad are placed second, with six points, while Ferencvaros are third with five points. If the former wins the upcoming game, and as expected, toppers Espanyol defeats Ferencvaros, the Bulgarians will stand a great chance to progress to the subsequent round.
Moreover, take into account the result in the reverse fixture. Moscow had scored the first goal, but in response, their counterparts put five straight goals past them, to register a massive 5-1 victory.
Finally, bring under the microscope, the fact that the Bulgarians have won 13 of their last 15 overall games (both losses had come against Espanyol), and Ludogorets emerges as firm favorite to post the three points.
