FCZ are in stunning form altogether and are coming on the back of a 5 match unbeaten streak (4W, 1D).

The Swiss side have a good home record at group stage of the competition as well and are currently 8 match unbeaten having won and drew 4 each.

Ludogorets lost to Bayer Leverkusen 2-3 on matchday 1 and they will be thoroughly disappointed having lead the game 2-0 around the half-hour mark.

The Bulgarian champions are making it to the group stage for a third time and successfully made it to the knockout round in previous two occasions.

The Razgrad club are strong travelers as well, having lost just 2 of their 13 matches, won 6 and drew 5.

Zurich vs Ludogorets Head-to-head

This will be their first ever head-to-head meeting.

Zürich’s lone meeting with a Bulgarian club happened in the 1977 UEFA Cup against CSKA Sofia. They won 1-0 at home before losing by same margin in the return leg.

Ludogorets lone Swiss opponent is FC Basel, but they met this side 6 times between 2013 and 2016. The h2h record is an underwhelming 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses.

Ludogorets are win-less in Swiss soil, drew 1 and lost 2 and are yet to score a goal.

Zurich vs Ludogorets Prediction

Zurich start the game with 3 points while Ludogorets on 0, but there is little to separate the sides on current form.

The Swiss outfit bagged a huge away win at Cyprus a fortnight ago and their current home form as well as home record in the group stage of the competition is impeccable.

Ludogorets suffered a loss on the opening day, but that was against a strong side Bayer Leverkusen. That defeat remains to be their lone loss since August and won 10 of the 13 games in all competitions during the period.

This could be a tight match and there will be nothing to separate at full-time whistle. Both times to score and the correct score 1-1 looks good to me from here.
