Champions League, Ludogorets vs PSG, 28.09.2016
The match will be held on September 28 at 21:45 in Sofia at “National Stadium Vasil Levski”, in the 2nd round of the Champions’ League group stage.
The Parisians held Arsenal in the 1st round of the tournament and drew 1-1. The fast goal of Cavani was replied by Sanchez. The Emery’s squad crushed the Gunners (6-0) in the away match, however, they lost to Toulouse with the score 2-0 quite recently. I think the club have no more options than to confidently win, otherwise fans won’t understand. Moreover, Arsenal most likely will take three points against Basel at Emirates. Parisians shall reconsider the approaches to a game and defeat Ludogorets.
The Bulgarian champion performs a good soccer this season. Ludogorets has drew 1:1 with Basel in the 1st game of Champions League. They played 3 matches in the Bulgarian championship and won all with total score 12:2. The hosts approach the forthcoming clash with a series from 9 matches without defeats. And the Bulgarians played 6 matches on home turf this season, with 5 victories and 1 draw, and never lost. The tell the truth, the rivals were obviously a lower class comparatively to the current opponents.
PSG undergo the process of reorganization. Under the leadership of the new coach Unai Emery It is getting used to play without Zlatan and David Luiz who left Paris this summer. We cannot state that the club became weaker. Though it had demonstrated some unconfident matches. For example, the away match with Toulouse 2:0, plus there was a defeat from Monaco 1:3 as well. As a result, PSG won and lost twice in 4 away matches this season, alternating victories and defeats. According to the season statistics, the Emery’s club have to win this match.
Ludogorets and PSG haven’t come across before. I think that despite some problems in games of the France championship, Champions League, PSG players don’t need to adjust somehow, they will come concentrated and win.
The match will start with a small investigation, then the French team will take hold a midfield and begin to impose the own style of game. The Bulgarians are persistent and should try to break the game course. Now and then, including their attacking actions, Ludogorets will try to create some tension on the rival, but it will hardly reach some dangerous moments. Minimum victory of PSG!
