The draw was quite gentle towards Bulgarian champions who faced Bosnian Zrinjski and Georgian Torpedo Kutaisi after suffering a disappointing UCL elimination to Hungarian Mol Vidi in the second qualifying round.

Paulo Autuori’s side did the job against Zrinjski without being prolific up front, but the Brazilian manager can be satisfied with how his defensive line looks ahead of the clash with a much weaker opposition here.

The Razgrad outfit conceded just one goal in last six games in all competitions and they’ll have a great chance to keep such thread going in the final Europa League qualifier of the season.

Ludogorets vs Torpedo Kutaisi: Head-to-head

Torpedo did nothing to threaten Ludogorets in their inaugural head to head outing last week in Tbilisi.

The Bulgarians were in full control of proceedings and they deservedly picked up a narrow 0-1 victory through Wanderson’s goal late in the first half.

Ludogorets vs Torpedo Kutaisi: Prediction

Georgian manager Kakhaber Chkhetiani has already stated that his team made a massive accomplishment by reaching this stage of the competition.

Torpedo won the domestic league for the first time in 15 years last season, but they only sit fifth in the new Erovnuli Liga campaign midway through the season being miles away from the title defense quest.

Torepdo’s defensive line proved out to be quite vulnerable in the previous Europa League round when they barely avoided the elimination to Albanian Kukesi conceding four goals over two legs.

Ludogorets have strong attacking weapons and we’d not be surprised to see the hosts boosting up their confidence with a demolishing victory on Thursday evening.
