Ludogorets Razgrad vs Ferencvaros Prediction
Ludogorets Razgrad brought a two-match losing streak in Group H to a halt in their last clash with CSKA Moscow after the final scores read 1-1. Despite taking the lead through Claudio Keseru six minutes after the hour mark in that matchup, their counterparts leveled the scores ten minutes later through Feder Chalov, subsequently forcing both sides to share the spoils.
Nevertheless, the Bulgarian outfit are still in the race for a ticket to the next round, as they are sporting a slender one-point cushion over Ferencvaros and a five-point advantage over CSKA Moscow.
On the other hand, Ferencvaros have been recording back to back draws in their last two group clashes. Their previous fixture at home saw them play out a four-goal thriller alongside Espanyol. Prior to that clash, CSKA Moscow managed to hold them to a stalemate.
Furthermore, their previous meeting with this foe did not end too well for them, even with home advantage at hand. The guests conceded thrice and failed to reply with even one of their own, despite Ludogorets being reduced to ten men close to the break.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have stumbled just once at home so far, which to their defense, was against the table-toppers Espanyol themselves. That too, by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
Hence, given that Ludogorets are arguably at their best in front of the home crowd, a defeat is certainly looming large for Ferencvaros this week.
In addition, h2h history indicates that there have been no dearth of goals when these two sides square up against each other. All of their past three meetings have featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
With Ferencvaros desperate to come out on top to keep their hopes of progression alive, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair in this one.
