Cherno More are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 385 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by M. Coureur).

Cherno are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 0-1 away versus CSKA Sofia. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 0-0 versus Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

This is expected to be a close game, with Cherno More perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.

Beroe form and stats

Playing away, Beroe have won 5 games, drawn 2 and suffered 2 defeats in the Parva Liga this season. Winning streaks in away matches are not that common, but Beroe are close to a proper streak after winning their two previous away games.

There were no winners in Beroe's previous match, a Parva Liga home game that ended 1-1 vs Slavia Sofia (placed 13th). Preceding that game was the away victory against Botev Vratsa with the score of 2-1.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Beroe playing away and similar expectations, we found five relevant matches. Results were three Beroe wins, one draw and one defeat.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Beroe manager D. Dimitrov as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Levski Sofia.

The travelling fans enjoy Beroe's attacking play in away games, having scored 15 goals in 9 league matches away. 10 goals have been conceded by Beroe in these games.
