Competition: Champions League qualifying
Market: Ludogorets win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Two sides who are looking to extend on their Champions League adventure on Wednesday night, Ludogorets will welcome Mura to the Huvepharma Arena.
Starting with the hosts, while Ludogorets might have been disappointed to have only played out a 0-0 stalemate in their first-leg contest last week, the Bulgarian outfit are still tipped as a leading pick to extend on their Champions League run. Dominating large spells of their trip to Slovenia last week, Head Coach Valdas Dambrauskas saw his side pick up some perfect momentum over the weekend. Opening up the defense of their domestic crown on the road at Lokomotiv Plovdiv, The Eagles picked up a convincing 3-1 win on their travels and the mood in their camp should be at a high. Likely to still be boosted by a stunning display as they lifted the Super League trophy thanks to a remarkable 4-0 win earlier in the month, Ludogorets have really impressed since opening their competitive campaign.
As for the visitors, although Mura might have managed to hang onto what was a shock 0-0 draw against the Bulgarian champions in their first-leg meeting last week, many from across Europe feel that Ante Šimundža’s side could need a minor miracle in midweek. While Ludogorets might have managed to pick up some perfect momentum last weekend, The Black and Whites have endured a torrid domestic opening run. Last seen getting hit with a 3-2 defeat away at Koper, Mura have lost back-to-back contests since opening the SNL campaign earlier in the month. Facing what could be another tough trip when they travel to the Huvepharma Arena in midweek, we’re backing a home victory here.
Bet: Ludogorets 1/2 to beat Mura in Wednesday’s Champions League qualifying second-leg @ 888sport
