Torpedo Kutaisi vs Ludogorets Preview and Predictions

Europa League Qualification Play-off 1st Leg 2018-19 by LeagueLane

Torpedo Kutaisi vs Ludogorets Razgrad
Europa League Qualification Play-off
Date: Thursday 23rd August 2018
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Ramaz Shengelia Stadium (Kutaisi).

Ludogorets Razgrad will be seen as the favourites to win this game and take an advantage back home to qualify for the Europa League. The side have done so before and put in some quality results and they are on form to travel to Georgia and get the win.

Torpedo Kutaisi of course have done well to get to this stage but now they will face a side full of quality and this game could be too much for them.

At the same time they need to remain optimistic and hopeful especially as they are the home side and will want to give everything for this match.

Will they keep two players up front or play cautious? That really is the big question. In the last round they beat Kukesi 5-4 on aggregate, so conceding 4 goals against a team inferior to Ludogorets is not a good sign that things could go well for the team.

Ludogorets beat Zrinjski Mostar in what was a tight victory ending 2-1 for them on aggregate.

Torpedo Kutaisi vs Ludogorets Razgrad: Prediction

We should witness an exciting match with a lot of pace to the game. Ludogorets will want to keep up their winning form and try and finish the tie in the first leg and we think they have the quality to hurt the home side in this game.

Our one and only bet will be to see Ludogorets score 2 or more goals, the price remains good value and if the away side can score early on then there is a very good chance to see this choice come in.
