In its current form, we can safely say that CSKA are the favorite team to win this game and have a good advance before the rematch in Sofia. The team of Luboslav Penev is in great shape and has chances up for the title.
The coach of the "Army" will be without injured James in today's game, while in the home team is Out Zehirov, who also has health problems and misses the meeting today.
It is quite interesting to note that it is very likely that Antonio Vutov acts like a false ninety for the canaries and for the typical striker Ferrebori Dore sit on the bench for today's match.
The team headed by Lyuboslav Penev is fighting on two fronts and on Saturday will fight with Levski, so the coach can keep some of the players.
The World Cup is a chance for both teams to lift a trophy during the season, which is a serious fight. The citizens of Plovdiv are even more motivated because the trophy will give them the opportunity to participate in European tournaments, while CSKA Sofia have this opportunity and during the championship, where it is second to 3 points by the leader Ludogorets.
Plovdiv players are in a bad state and the team do not know the taste of victory in six consecutive league games, while CSKA have five wins and a draw in the last six league games and the draw is against Ludogorets.
In the last five games, statistics show two wins for CSKA, one for Botev and two draws. Our prediction for this game is 1: 0 success for the guests.
Prediction: Botev (Plovdiv) – CSKA 0: 1
