Ludogorets Razgrad vs Hapoel Beer Sheva
Champions League Third qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 2nd August 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Ludogorets Arena.
Ludogorets will have a mountain to climb in order to annul Hapoel’s massive 2-0 edge from the first leg played in Beer Sheva seven days ago.
However, it’s far from the closed tie since the Bulgarian champions managed two opals past both Arsenal and PSG in the last term’s group stage of the competition and there is no reason for us not to believe in their inspired attacking evening at Ludgorets Arena.
Chances for such an evening are fairly slim if we are to consider Ludogorets’ most recent form in the final third.
The hosts have made it two games on the bounce without scoring a single goal as they only drew 0-0 with Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the second round of the new season in the elite class of the Bulgarian football.
We have to mention that the head coach Georgi Dermendzhiev rested some of his main stars for the second leg with Hapoel which is why the goalless draw with Lokomotiv does not have to be relevant.
Hapoel Be’er Sheva
Hapoel obviously mean business as they clinched five wins on the bounce ahead of the visit to Razgrad.
The team led by Bachar Barak demolished Hapoel Ashkelon 3-0 in the Israeli Super Cup final on Saturday making it fourth consecutive match with at least two goals scored.
The most lethal of strikers is Nigerian Anthony Nwakaeme who already had three goals to his name in Champions League.

Nwakaeme was just the man who broke the deadlock for Hapoel in the first leg seven days ago, while Michael Ohana doubled the lead for the Israeli side eleven minutes from time.
Ludogorets vs Hapoel Be’er Sheva: Prediction
Ludogorets have to push forward from the very start of the game and it will clearly leave plenty of space at the back.
Knowing that the visitors have been red-hot in the final third lately, we’d not be surprised to see them getting the away win at the odds of 7/2.
