Vidi vs Ludogorets
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 1 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Puskas Akademia Pancho Arena, Felcsut.
It was one of the most one-sided affairs we’ve seen in a while when Ludogorets hosted Vidi seven days ago in Razgrad, but the dominance counted for little for the Bulgarian outfit who will travel to Hungary with a goalless draw as the first leg score.
Paulo Autuori’s men are still massive favourites to advance into the next round, but they could face troubles breaking their rivals down once again regarding their current spell of form in the final third.
Ludogorets scored just two goals in last three games in all competitions which is generally poor for their standards. They took four points from two opening ties of the new First League season only thanks to the 1-0 win over Etar and a 1-1 draw to Beroe at the weekend.
They did notch as many as nine over two legs of the first qualifying round tie against Northern Irish Crusaders, but they’ll clearly not repeat such showings against a much stronger opposition here.
Vidi vs Ludogorets: Head-to-head
This will be the second head to head game between the two sides.
The first one ended in a goalless draw even though Ludogorets completely dominated it from the very first whistle.
The Bulgarian outfit took as many as 11 corners to Vidi’s none and had 16 attempts to Vidi’s two.
Vidi vs Ludogorets: Prediction
Marko Nikolic has reasons to be thrilled with the result from the first leg, but can his stern defensive line hold it out in the return fixture as well? The team conceded just one goal in last three games across competitions and they will no doubt park the bus here as well.
The Under 2.5 goals FT is thus worth backing at 1.66, while we will alternatively back the visitors to confirm the quality and the favourites tag and win the match at 1.72. Braver tipsters can try with the 0-2 correct score at 7.00 or Ludogorets to keep a clean sheet at 2.10.
