Ludogorets vs Hoffenheim: Preview and Predictions

Ludogorets vs Hoffenheim
UEFA Europa League
Date: 28th September 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Ludogorets Arena.

Ludogorets managed to keep things quiet at the back on the opening day when they held on to a goalless draw at Istanbul Basaksehir.

Can they back up the fine defensive display this Thursday when they host Hoffenheim in an important second round fixture?


Dimitar Dimitrov can be satisfied with his team’s form given that Ludogorets picked up three straight wins since the mentioned Europa League draw with Istanbul.

The hosts have some super strong options in the final third in the likes of Claudiu Keseru, Marcelinho, Juninho Quixada, Virgil Misidjan and Jody Lukoki and they will enter the clash with the Germans on the back of netting nine goals in last three outings in all competitions.


Julian Nagelsmann’s men got off to a flying start of their Europa League debut when Sandro Wagner pushed them in charge midway through the first half of the match with Sporting Braga two weeks ago.

However, the Germans allowed the Portuguese outfit a comeback in the second half which is why they will have an imperative to get three points against Ludogorets in Razgrad.

Ludogorets vs Hoffenheim: Head to head

This will be the first ever head to head meeting between the two sides.

Ludogorets vs Hoffenheim: Prediction

Hoffenheim have seen improvements to their form with back-to-back Bundesliga victories over Mainz 05 and Schalke 04.

However, the 3/4 odds offered for the away win pick just won’t do the job regarding the value as we see the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS as by far the best choice from this one.

Ludogorets vs Hoffenheim: Bets

The first pick is Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS at the odds of 21/20 @ 888 Sport.

Braver tipsters can try with Claudiu Keseru to score anytime at 12/5 @ 888 Sport.
